Until you know how good it feels to eat healthy foods, your first instinct to eat healthy is because it will supposedly make you look good. However, once people start eating healthy, they keep coming back to it because people feel great from it and they don't want to lose that feeling. - Heather Hemmer

Without even realizing it, your unhealthy eating habits could be an act of aggression in the form of self-sabotage. Fortunately, no matter where your relationship with food is at, it's never too late to take action to heal it.
In Wellness Force Radio episode 165, Certified Health & Life Coach, Fitness Trainer, Motivational Speaker, and Co-Founder of the online clean-eating community, The 30 Clean, Heather Hemmer, shares how she was able to overcome her own sugar addiction and body dysmorphia to give herself the love and care she needed.
By the end of this episode, you will learn the signs of food addiction, how to become less dependent on food, and how to transition to healthier eating habits.
Here at The 30 Clean, we use a “challenge” concept to help people get excited about reaching their health and wellness goals. Not surprisingly, feeling the accomplishment of completing a challenge is really effective!
Our first focus is on nutrition education (there are A LOT of misconceptions out there,) but we do so in a community environment that makes learning much more fun! When you eat clean, you basically eat foods that are REAL, not processed. Plus you eliminate food that can cause intolerance or inflammation, such as the following:
Each Challenge is led by a 30 Clean Coach, a 30 Clean Certified Health Advisor and an entire team cheering you on in a small, private Facebook group! Get ready to make new friends who become like family.
"When it comes to addiction, there is an underlying issue of self-love. When we cannot love, accept, and fully embrace everything about ourselves, we're always going to find that one thing that sabotages us." - Heather Hemmer
"Anytime you have an emotional charge and you reach for something - whether it's food, alcohol, or even shopping, it's important that you notice your habits. If you're doing something habitually like eating out of boredom or when you want a distraction, it shows that you have an addiction. Then, you have to go back and discover why you're eating like this in the first place." - Heather Hemmer
"When you start to eat healthy, your body is going to do things that you're not comfortable with and you're going to feel physically ill. You'll be mentally frustrated and feel irritable. A lot of people find excuses for why a detox isn't working for them, but letting your body go through those symptoms will give you a lot of clarity about your health." - Heather Hemmer
"You actually start to see yourself when you look in a mirror and you talk to yourself. That's when you're really reflecting on who you are and you can finally understand that you're the most important person in your entire life because you'll always have yourself. That thought process can really shift your perspective on life." - Heather Hemmer
"Stress can be highly inflammatory and perhaps you're eating the best you can, but nothing else is shifting and you still have gut problems. Unless you look at all the other aspects of your life, you're going to miss something and you're not going to feel your best." - Heather Hemmer
