In this very personal and open episode, I share my experience with disordered eating. This is a sensitive topic and if you find it triggering, please skip this one.

I'm opening up on my self confidence issues, my addictive personality and the aim for being in control that lead me to be consumed by food, or lack of food.

Please be sympathetic and leave harsh comments to yourself. This is to share my experience in helping you learn more about me as a trainer and person.

And it's true, prices have gone up in a time where we really can't afford inflation! Listen in for actual tips you can use to shop smarter without cutting coupons.
