About me

I haven’t always been fit and healthy.
I used to work as a model and in order to be able to maintain that industry standard skinny model body type, my primal goal used to be eat as little as possible. Needless to say, but as I was getting skinnier and eating less, eating disorder followed too. I have been diagnosed and suffering from a rather nasty eating disorder, to be more precise Bulimia Nervosa for almost 6 years. This has caused me massive health problems both physical and psychological too such as depression.
One day I finally decided that I could not handle it any more. I had to quit my model’s job and step away from that life in order to heal myself. And I did it.
I beat Bulimia by my own which I’m really proud of. It was not an easy journey to start with. My metabolism was really slow and as a result I gained a lot of weight during my first year after recovery.
I felt really unhappy and couldn’t even look at myself on the mirror (I’ve attached image). But I stopped myself from stepping into the old habits of vomiting, aggressive diets or doing anything crazy to my body ever again.
Instead I’ve started to learn about nutrition and weight training. In a nut-shell this was my solution and as a result I became a fitness model, coach and athlete.
