My Transformation Story

My Transformation Story

Time to share my own transformation.

Let me begin by stating that it doesn’t come easy to share something so personal publicly but at the same time I am dedicated to be completely transparent about my own journey, and my former struggles, and to offer as much guidance as I can through my blog and coaching services (although, as a disclaimer, none of what I share with your based on my own experience should be used as a substitute to a medical advice). In addition, the mission of my platform is to show that vulnerability is the first step to healing. When we begin to perceive our low points with more compassion, and less shame, we then realize that eating disorders/body dysmorphia/ binge eating/alcoholism, imbalanced hormones, low (or extreme) libido and severe stress are just a symptom of a deeper issue…. a lack of self-love, safety and life purpose.

I strongly believe that social media can be a powerful tool for bringing more social awareness about the significant amount of young people battling eating disorders, depression and addictions. I was one of them!

 And I am a success story! 

We are never victims of our circumstances. 

We are warriors who need the extra push and courage to show up for ourselves and win our battle. 


Eating disorder and depression recovery
Share this post to your friends on IG. Let’s bring more awareness that healing is always possible

Long story short, during puberty (around my parents’ divorce) I developed body dysmorphia and disordered eating that soon escalated to depression, very low confidence, skin issues, loss of my menstrual cycle (for three years), lack of sexual drive, fear of commitment, ongoing feelings of unworthiness and “not being enough”, constant excuses not to follow my dreams, an overall dragging sense of being a victim of my past. It took me more than ten years to reach a bottom level of exhaustion, adrenal fatigue and self-fulfilled prophecies that I wasn’t worthy of love, success and happiness. While, during this whole time, still wearing the facade of “I am fine” and “I am too self-conscious to talk about it.”


THEN, ONE DAY, I AWOKE TO MY TRUTH AND AUTHENTICITY. My life changed completely!


The Universe Always Has Your Back….turn around and you will see it:)

Five years ago I was first exposed to the healing properties of journaling, mindful eating, dance therapy and meditation. And my whole life transformed. I started to let go of all limiting beliefs about myself, and my body. To realize that we, in fact, are not our bodies! We are all beautiful souls equally worthy and capable of attracting love, happiness and success…. just by being authentic, practicing self-love and compassion to other beings, feeding our cells with proper nutrition and distressing our mind with meditation. Recent studies in neuroscience clearly show that our mind is constantly creating entirely new pathways… You can always change your beliefs, rewrite your story, and let go of the past! Took me a couple of years to fearlessly dive within, to develop my own practice, and to confidently step in the shoes of a health, life and meditation coach. And now I am so grateful for all of those past experiences. They were a blessing which helped me see the light!

I am here to be your guide… and to show you that it can be done! You can transform your life!!!❤️

Mindful Eating

Mindful Eating

Let’s talk about food? 🍉🍇🥥🍨


For most of us, food is more than a fuel. It is a cultural exchange of traditions, a gastronomic experience, an individually customized eating plan, a collective commemoration of festivities, and, above all, a resource that feeds our biological, mental and emotional hunger.

Let Food Be Thy Medicine
Feed Your Body. Feed Your Soul. Equally Important.

Food`s presence (or lack), nominatively, is built in our vernacular, and plays a significant role in our daily life. In all polarities of its expression: from being an orthorexic obsession, to causing binge eating addictions, to simply being  f o o d: a term coined to describe the types of sources of energy we choose to consume, and don’t worry about it.



I, personally, have struggled with disordered eating in the past, and know from experience that there is always an underlying reason that causes us to either fear or idolize food.



Food deprivation is linked to fear, and lack of self-love. Binge eating signals emotional numbness and lack of safety. Either way, there is always a cure. It is called self-care.



In my practice, I advocate for mindful eating. A type of eating that leaves plenty of room for exploration of foods your soul desires, while still intuitively choosing foods that are healing for your body: for your adrenals, for your gut flora, for your brain, for your organs, for your hormonal health.


Eating “healthy” simply means Being heathy. Not just physically, but also mentally.



I cured all of my issues with food by incorporating daily self-care and learning how to unconditionally love and accept myself, and my body. I personally choose to eat vegan because that’s the diet that helps me thrive, be energized, sleep well, and restore my formerly wracked hormones. Whichever way you choose to eat, fruits and vegetables (especially vegetables!!), are an integral part of your wellness. “A sound mind in a sound body” is the foundation of a mindful living, being, and eating.



Take your journal and free-write about those five prompts.

  1. When I eat, do I tend to feed my emotional or physical hunger? Or do I feed them both? Please describe.
  2. For what kind of emotions am I hungry for? Comfort, satiation, pleasure, reward, etc…
  3. Am I kind to myself when I eat? Does the food I eat make me happy and excited, or bored and restricted?
  4. Do I eat in a way that is intuitive and natural to my body, or do I often feel perplexed about what “shall” I eat?
  5. Do I listen to my body’s hunger signals, or do I try to numb, or control them (either by restriction, or by abusing my stomach with regular excessive consumption?)

Take as much time as you need to complete this, and – if you have any questions – please send me a message here, or dm me on my IG: @ana_maria_georgie.
