TRISTA ANDERSON -NASM Fitness Nutrition Specialization (FNS) Certified

From a young age, I’ve enjoyed being active and playing sports. I have always been someone who has practiced a healthy lifestyle by intuitively choosing nutrient dense foods that are figure friendly and also fuel performance.  However, there is more to how our bodies work than what we put in them. Psychological factors affect us more than any other component in our daily lives. The mind determines how we perform and what we choose to eat.

I began my competing career in a very strict repetitive diet. I went 15 weeks eating the same foods over and over again, without allotted cheat meals. The strict diet caused a complete shut-down from friends and family, a social life is almost non-existent, and you feel alone. No individual should put their mind or body through such a vigorous program. I did win my first few competitions, but it also came with a cost. I suffered from BED (binge eating disorder) and it took years to learn how to intuitively eat again. Had I started with flexible dieting methods, my life would have taken a different course.  I could have avoided the struggle with bingeing and the very depressive times that crippled my progress. However, this experience allows me to share my story and understand/empathize to those who have endured similar experiences and may also need help regaining control. Flexible dieting allows you to reach your fitness goals without interruption to your mental health, family life, and overall happiness. It is a sustainable tool that can be utilized throughout the lifetime. I am continuing my competing career today with a much healthier approach, and love to help others who desire to better themselves.
