AIP, Orthorexia, and Weight Loss

π˜•π˜¦π˜·π˜¦π˜³ did I ever think I could eat this way.⁣


⁣
But a funny thing happened when I hit rock bottom,⁣


⁣
struggled to barely function,⁣


⁣
and no longer recognized my life…⁣


⁣
I felt willing to do 𝘫𝘢𝘴𝘡 𝘒𝘣𝘰𝘢𝘡 𝘒𝘯𝘺𝘡𝘩π˜ͺ𝘯𝘨 to feel better.⁣


⁣
The only thing I thought could help me at that point?⁣


⁣
Medicine.⁣


⁣
Just give me a pill doc, and make this nightmare I am living go away.⁣
⁣


But after diagnosing me with Hashimoto’s,⁣


⁣
my endocrinologist said there’s no medicine he could give me to help.⁣


⁣
Knowing there was no magic pill I could take,⁣


⁣
I decided to change what I had power to.⁣


So I started the autoimmune protocol (AIP),⁣


⁣
I went to work overhauling my nutrition, lifestyle, and mindset.⁣


⁣
Some of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but such game changers for me!⁣


I look at my life now and 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐑𝐚𝐫𝐝π₯𝐲 π›πžπ₯𝐒𝐞𝐯𝐞 the way I’ve rebuilt my life.⁣


⁣
I am π‘”π“‡π’Άπ“‰π‘’π’»π“Šπ“ every day that I dug deep and tried to change.⁣


⁣
Fast forward to today, and I eat a modified AIP diet, with many reintroductions.⁣


⁣
Over the past months, I’ve heard a lot about orthorexia and healing diets, like AIP.⁣


⁣
According to the National Eating Disorders website, orthorexia is an β€œobsession with proper or β€˜healthful’ eating.”⁣


⁣
The website explains signs and symptoms, and I highly encourage⁣
you to take a look if you have a history of or feel a tendency toward orthorexia.⁣


⁣
My experience?⁣


⁣
AIP set me 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞 from my autoimmune symptoms and I 𝐟𝐞𝐞π₯ 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐣𝐨𝐲 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐑𝐚𝐧 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐒𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐧𝐝 π₯𝐒𝐯𝐒𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐑𝐒𝐬 𝐰𝐚𝐲.⁣


⁣


Everyone is different.⁣


⁣
I 100% agree that it is important to be aware of orthorexia.⁣


⁣
It is also important to be aware of the power of healing foods, a healthy lifestyle, and a positive mindset.
