It is so wonderful to receive messages like this. They just make me so happy to know that people are healing themselves with The Kind Diet. In this kind cure story, Brenda explains how a plant-based diet is helping her conquer her eating disorder:
“The Kind Diet is helping me learn better ways to deal with Bulimia. While there is no real cure for Bulimia, I feel that eating a plant-based diet takes away the emotional feelings that I have about food. I believe this is because I am not participating in animal cruelty and it somehow allows me to feel less “guilty” regarding the food that I eat. I feel calmer while eating vegetarian since there is no pain or violence involved in the manufacturing/growing of the food that I eat. Thereby lessening the internal emotional struggle that I have with food.
“I carry The Kind Diet book with me to the grocery store and keep it in my kitchen as a reminder of the changes that I am trying to make. I have tried many recipes and even my husband is enjoying the food (although not a vegetarian). I’m hoping that through the Kind Diet and my bikram yoga classes I will finally free myself of the body and food issues that I have battled my entire life. Wouldn’t it be wonderful at 47 to finally have peace and acceptance of ones self? Thank you for your help and support in my journey. Keep up the good work!”
Thank you so much for letting me share your story, Brenda. I know this is such a deeply personal issue and I hope that your story can help inspire other people!!
If you’re dealing with an eating disorder, I hope that Brenda’s story can help you to find a better relationship with food and your body.
Has a Kind Diet helped you to heal your body, inside or out?
I want to hear your Kind Cure story!
