Last week I told you that you could achieve your dream body by simply shifting your mindset. I keep writing simply in these drafts and then crossing it out because in truth, there’s nothing simple about it! It’s a long and at times testing journey, but stick at it and you can work miracles – you can feel incredible. I’d love to say I’m a pro, but again, truthfully I’m still learning. Modern society doesn’t exactly help, and these days I can’t even scroll through my facebook home page without seeing mention of weight loss. SNOREEEE!
Body dissatisfaction isn’t a joke! I remember the first time I worried about the prospect of being fat as young child. It was on holiday in France where indulging in ice cream was one of my happiest past times. One evening after I joyfully exclaimed it had been my 3rd scoop of the day my nanny warned that I should be careful or I would get fat. (more…)

I have absolutely zero regrets in doing this, and it has been amazing to see my readership slowly but surely increase. This week however, I wanted to go for something a little more uplifting and take the chance to introduce myself a little better. So incase you’re interested, here’s 10 things about me that you might not know.
Welcome back to part two of ‘How I used clean eating to kick my eating disorder’. I had to pinch myself with how many of you read this blog post, so I hope I can do the end of the story justice! Here goes…
I started Goodness Guru in the summer after fresher’s. During this time, except for my close friends and family, I kept it very underwraps. I didn’t want anyone knowing about my newfound love of avocado brownies because in all honestly I felt embarrassed. An instagram based on healthy food seemed all a little cliché for someone who’d suffered from an eating disorder, and I certainly didn’t want my new fun uni friends thinking I was a kale obsessed weirdo, which by the way I was and still am.
