Hey beautiful! I'm Kyla. I'm so glad we're here together.
You’ve probably spent one too many Mondays telling yourself,
“Okay. This is it. Clean eats only. No crap foods. WILLPOWER.”
...Only to find yourself at the bottom of a peanut butter jar by 11 PM. By then, you blew it, so you might as well get your hands on whatever food you can find in your cabinets before next Monday rolls around.
And let’s not forget about watching the calorie marker tick away on the treadmill, spending hours scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest feeds trying to find the cleanest recipes out there, constantly body checking in the mirror to make sure that one pizza slice didn’t add 10 pounds right to your love handles, and generally feeling totally out of control around food.
“How does this keep happening?! I just want to feel NORMAL around food!”
If you’re here, I’m guessing you’re done with the crazy restrictive diets, the ass-kicking workouts, the late-night binges, and the insults from your inner mean girl.
You’re so. Freaking. Tired of it.
And that’s where I come in.
I was trapped for years in this cycle. What started as a genuine interest in nutrition turned into obsessing over each ingredient in everything I ate, spending my nights going over every calorie that entered my mouth that day, and every morning calculating a workout to get rid of it and build the lean, mean, machine of a body I so desperately wanted.
I tried mustering my willpower every morning, but truthfully, I couldn’t even be near a piece of cake without having an internal freak out. I wanted so badly to eat these foods "normally" like everyone else was, but somehow I was still binge eating every night after work.
I hated my body. And I felt freakin’ crazy around food.
So what was the last straw?
One night, while I was sneaking my roommate’s ice cream from the freezer (ugh, anyone else been there?) I started to feel super sick from having eaten so much. I was in tears from my stomach hurting so bad and yet I could not. stop. eating.
I was tired of controlling myself around food each day only to find myself each night eating Ben & Jerry’s from the carton until I felt sick. I didn’t care what it took, I just needed to get out of this cycle.
Eventually, I realized that I didn’t have a willpower problem. I had a problem with my relationship to food and to myself.
So, I traded criticism for compassion.
I gave my body love each day, instead of torturing her with crazy workouts that I hated.
I started to trust myself around food, and I broke down my need to binge all the time.
I learned how to enjoy doughnuts, lasagna, and chocolate...without bingeing.
I fell in love with myself, and now I live like a damn queen inside my own body.
I’m here to make the same happen for you. Because all women deserve to live in this place of self-love and trust.
TAKE A LOOK AROUND. START EXPLORING.
I built this online home for you to get a better understanding of where you’re at in your journey of food and body love. I’m so excited to guide you through.
