In this post for my friend, Kirstin’s blog, I share how my relationship with food and my body has changed throughout my teens, through studying nutrition and dietetics, to now.
I don’t want this article to sound like ‘Intuitive Eating worked for me, so it’ll work for you’ – because I’m not trying to say that at all. My intentions behind writing this article are:
- Firstly, I think we need to be more open about the fact that people studying nutrition and dietetics may very well have stuff going on with food and exercise which they might need support with.
- But to also consider that maybe if I hadn’t experienced food and exercise anxieties, I might have been less likely to come across IE, and if I did I probably wouldn’t have realised that it matters that much, and now I’m currently working in this field.
