Episode 30 is a little different from what I usually upload. However, I believe it will be beneficial for many and especially now, as its the beginning of a new year and everyone is making news years resolutions to lose weight. I am therefore hoping this episode helps you put an end to those low calorie and restrictive diets this year and instead learn to listen to your body and treat it better and with love in 2019 and forever.

PCOS and Eating Disorder Recovery #3

By Despina | April 16, 2018

In this episode I wanted to talk about recovery and healing. I have recovered from my Eating Disorder, healed my hormones and took back control from PCOS, but all this required patience and commitment.

The aim for this episode was to remind you that healing and recovery take times, but it is worth it. The struggle, the ups and downs, it is all worth it in the end when you have finally taken back control.

I also discuss how I maintained my motivation to stay on path of recovery and healing.
