In Episode 1 of the Food Freedom Fertility Podcast, I want to share my own personal recovery story from disordered eating and Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (HA). If you follow along on Instagram, you may have noticed I share a good amount here and there, but I don’t’ think I’ve shared the whole story start to finish in detail about how I lost period, wrestled with disordered eating, and finally recovered my period and fully healed my relationship with food. There’s a lot to cover here so I will do my best to make it concise while also answering some of the most common questions I get about my journey, so- let’s get into it!
