Let’s get straight into it shall we?…
I’ve been around the block a few times if you know what I mean, I used to take recreational drugs, be anorexic and bulimic. I was a mess and I tried to hide it behind makeup and a well-rehearsed smile.
I’ve been into health from a young age. On our farm my mum made a point of bringing us up on organic fruits and veggies. Dad made a point of working us hard and instilling the ‘stay active’ philosophy that I’ve adhered to ever since.
I moved from the country when I was 16 to the ‘big smoke’ City. I got a temporary job at McShit’s for a year before attending high school there. After school I attempted a dietetics course in college but gave it away as it was boring as hell and even then I remember saying to my mum that it just seemed wrong to give a heart attack patient beef and milk post op.
I had various jobs when I finished school – bar waitress, nude stripper (lol one night), office chick, movie theatre attendant, room housekeeper at the snow… I didn’t know what I wanted to do, all the while I was suffering from poor health and self esteem.
I gained some interesting credentials – advanced nutrition, weight training, aerobic conditioning and training special populations and became clued up on the standard nutritionists way of prescribing a healthy diet. What a joke! Anyways…
My last job before finding my true purpose was working as a personal trainer in a big gym, it was a great change from working in a boring arse office. I got to hang out with fit people and learn more about diet and lifestyle. I started off your typical “You need meat for protein” type, not really even knowing what a vegan was until I got a vegan client. I selfishly whined to her “but I could never give up my lamb…” and she gave me the exact valid reasons I give to people today, I of course fobbed them off as being too extreme. That was until my yoga teacher looked into my eyes and told me I was full of mucus and needed to basically get my shit together. She told me about veganism and juicing and that is where it all started. Unfortunately I didn’t have a clue, I tried to do raw from the info I gathered but no programs were high carb and because of a lack of glucose to the brain, I fell off the wagon quick smart.
Fast forward a few years and I was suffering big time… exhausted, pimply, farty, overweight. I started to get really unreliable and call up sick to my clients. It wasn’t a good look for a personal trainer who was meant to be healthy and fit.
The last straw was when I went to the Greek Islands in 2006 and smashed myself with vaccinations and sloppy meaty garbage. I came back a train wreck and reprimanded myself “What the fuck am I doing to myself?!” I was sick of feeling like a piece of shi…
Ultimately I found the 801010 book through a lovely girl at a raw picnic, she was on the program, I was freakin’ blown away with the results I began to experience within just a month of being on the program. Digestion became a breeze, skin was clearing up, depression was lifting…From that point on I knew this was it, I’d found IT. The most amazing lifestyle on the Planet, the one we are designed to follow.
Fast forward a year or two and I got together with my partner Durianrider.
