Eating Disorder Recovery & Carving Your Own Empowered Path in Wellness - with Engrid Latina
This week I’m chatting with my amazing friend Engrid. I’m so grateful that the universe brought us together. From our first conversation, I felt like we connected on a soul sister kinda level and I’m so excited to see how both our paths unfold. This conversation feels intimate and deep and winding in such a wonderful way. We talk about her experience with an eating disorder and how she found her way out. We also discuss working in an industry that’s shrouded in diet culture and trying to break the mold by carving out your own path.
We Talk About:
Engrid’s background Her story with anorexia The root of how the eating disorder manifested The non-linear path of recovering How she became a personal trainer How training and fitness was a slow stepping stone forward in recovery Slow progress is still progress The power and importance of therapy The guilt that comes with realizing that you may have contributed to diet culture in the past - even if it’s not what you believe now Why it’s important not to demonize communities Why you can’t recover for someone else Navigating being a personal trainer that doesn’t focus on weight loss in an industry steeped in diet culture The fear we have of our bodies changing Desires for appearance always boil down to seeking love Why we don’t want to be a gurus
