After I graduated, I continued to prioritize my health and wellness. I began meditating, practicing yoga and seeking healers, coaches and therapists who could help me get underneath the reasons I struggled in life. I dug deeper into the effects of sugar on the brain and body and went on to write the book The 28 Day Kick The Sugar Challenge, launch a blog called Sarah Talks Food, become a Certified Health Coach and run both group and private coaching programs.
I allowed my curiosity to lead me, and over the years, I tried everything! I tried eating vegetarian, vegan, Paleo. I tried Intermittent Fasting, grazing, and eating only 3 meals a day. I brought in tools and foods and supplements and protocols and I used myself as a guinea pig! I cultivated a relationship of curiosity with my body as I tracked how each change made me feel. I watched my body and mind become impacted by the changes I was making and I made decisions for myself from that place of raised awareness.
I've come to a place, almost 20 years after I started, where I can genuinely say I've found a program that can help anyone struggling with food, weight and body image to feel more at ease in their lives and inside their bodies. The work we do truly allows us to cultivate a deep relationship of love and trust with these human animals we carry around and I share the best of the best of what's worked in my own life. The best part? There are no diets to follow. No strict protocols. No products to buy, pills to take, potions to mix in. We learn the truth about food and why diets are designed to fail. We learn the power of habits. We shift our mindset. We nourish our bodies and brains. And we enjoy the process of becoming healthier...one bite at a time.
You CAN live a life of your dreams. You CAN look and feel your best. You CAN live without diets and restriction and sacrifice. You CAN learn to love foods you thought you hated. You CAN find joy in exercise (the way you did as a kid). You CAN change your life.
Because we are always, always allowed to change.
If this resonates with you, and if you're looking for a coach to guide you, cheerlead you and educate you on your journey, then I am confident I can help. My father taught me to be an enthusiast. My greatest joy comes when others improve their lives through the simple practices and behaviour changes we make...together.
