When i was 17 i developed an eating disorder; anorexia. I would often eat less than 500 calories in a day, and sometimes, nothing at all. When i was 19 i became addicted to cocaine and ecstasy. My nails were brittle and my hair was falling out. My skin was covered in acne bumps. By the time i was 21 i had swapped anorexia for bulimia and was binge-eating till i was in agony, purging daily. I developed serious digestive issues and suicidal depression. I felt helpless after seeing every specialist in the book. One day i went to my usual yoga class and there was a new teacher. She was so incredibly vibrant and energetic. I felt drawn to speak to her. She told me she was vegan, and loved fruit. Little does she know that she helped save my life that day. Never fucking give up.
I talk all about my eating disorder herstory in my new ebook My Naked Lunchbox. Take a read and change your life forever.
