Ova 25-godišnjakinja iz Kolorada otkrila je da je zbog priprema za takmičenje fitnes modela čak izgubila menstruaciju, a pamti da se osjećala jako “izolovano”, gladno, uplašeno i nesretno, piše “Žena“…
“Fitnes modeling je uglavnom predstavljen kao fitnes, ali mnogo djevojaka koje se bave time imaju poremećaje ishrane. I sama sam osjetila to na svojoj koži. Budila sam se rano svakog jutra da bih vježbala dva puta dnevno, nisam pet mjeseci jela ništa osim piletine, bjelanaca, pahuljica, putera od kikirikija, brokolija i proteinskog praha. Totalno sam se izolovala od sebe i svoje porodice i prijatelja“, rekla je Medi koja pamti i da joj je trener rekao da šest mjeseci izbjegava voće.
I know for a fact that being a fitness model, meditative yogi, juice cleanse queen or a ripped bodybuilder does not bring the happiness you’re told about. (Trust me, I’ve been all of those things!) . You see, this picture used to be me. My frame here is SO much smaller than where I sit when I'm at my healthiest; on the inside I was miserable, insecure, and desperate for body freedom. . At a very young age, I became obsessed with how food made me look. . I had a body that took the place of relationships, mental health, satiation, sleep, food, my period, laughter, metabolism, happiness, intuition, hormonal health, traveling, spontaneity and everything else important in life. . You’re shown pictures of “fit” and thin bodies all day long. Whether it’s for a perfume commercial, a new-and-improved diet pill, a fitness program, or a restaurant, it’s still the same body time and time again. . What you DON’T see is behind-the-scenes, where the following happens: . Isolation . Bloat, gas, and irritable bowel reactions due to non-clean foods, unexpected foods, or anything that’s not in your diet-approved meal plan . The disappearance of menstruation . The tears and depression caused by these consequences . Food fears . Emotional eating . Weight gain . Anxiety . And loads more… . Today, my purpose is to nip these societal pressures in the bud because the “behind-the-scenes” is where REAL life happens. . Take my word for it: Leanness can not make up for a lack of life. Without my spray tan, glittery suit, and oil, I was really just a young girl dreaming of body freedom.
“Došla sam do stadijuma gdje sam trenirala za takmičenje i ujedno mrzila svoje tijelo kako god da je izgledalo. Imala sam 6,5 procenata tjelesne masti, gasove u najgorim oblicima od silnih proteina koje sam unosila, a jedina stvar koja mi se vrzmala po glavi bila je da će ljudi na mojoj sahrani reći ‘kako sam zdravo jela’“, kaže ona.
Medi je još sa sedam godina imala poremećaj u ishrani kada je na televiziji vidjela reklamu u kojoj upozoravaju na ovakve probleme, a ona je to shvatila kao način da održi kontrolu. To je bio okidač za njeno opsesivno vježbanje i ograničen jelovnik. Prije koledža je riješila da se prijavi na fitnes takmičenje jer je mislila da će na taj način dobiti tijelo iz snova.
Naredne tri godine opsesivnih treninga i restrikcije nisu nimalo doprinijele Medinoj sreći, samopouzdanju i snovima, a čak je i zbog toga prestala da dobija menstruaciju.

“Izabrala sam sreću i sada sam mnogo opuštenija. Ponovo imam kontrolu nad svojim životom“, rekla je ona.
In 2011, I decided I couldn't handle the overwhelming sensation of being “out of control” of what people thought about me. To cope, I took matters into my own hands. . I set out to create the perfect body, hoping it would make me bulletproof to fear, pain and rejection. . I thought that if I could accomplish this goal, I would be able to fill a massive hole in my heart. I thought maybe, just maybe, perfection would complete me. . When that didn't work (because of course it didn't), I bounced to food. Maybe eating perfectly will give me that feeling. . It wasn't until I stopped searching for some “thing” to fill my heart and turned to some ONE to fill my heart that I finally found the peace, joy and complete-ness I was looking for. . I do not consider myself to be religious. Religion is organized and structured. A lot of it comes with check boxes you have to complete in order to do things right. . I don't like living in that way (I lived most of my life checking off boxes, I don't want to do that in my spiritual life). . Instead, I believe myself to be a Christ follower. A God addict. A Jesus freak. I love God, and I love human beings. . Jesus + Everything = Nothing. . Jesus + Nothing = Everything. . I want to bring that same realization to you if it's something you want to try. What do you have to lose, in all seriousness? Your body hasn't brought you the satisfaction you thought it would. Your money hasn't. Your food hasn't. . Why not try out faith? . If you haven't yet taken the leap and signed up for Scripture, Food, and Healing, the count down for the 50% off price has started ($200 off). . If you join while the program is just $297.99, the six-week course boils down to only $7 a day. . Imagine completely loving your body, having a fantastic relationship with food, and believing in something bigger than just yourself, for only $7 a day. Do you think you could cut back on a few lattes or t-shirts that just sit in your closet in order to afford this? . If you have a reason holding you back, let me know…what is it? I'll respond to them all. . Go HERE to register (it's self-paced): ?? http://scripturefoodandhealing.com
