BEHIND THE COACHING: A chat with my amazing Mastermind Student & Plant Based Health Coach Sarah Hagstrom
The Seasonal Diet: where we help women and couples lose weight and thrive on a plant-based diet.
Everything changed for us in 2010.
Before then, I suffered from the worst persistent stomach pain.
Doctors couldn't figure it out. IBS, allergic to gluten, maybe it's just stress? they would say.
Skin issues that had me so self-conscious I wouldn't leave the house without a full face, and extra weight that had me shopping non-stop trying to find the perfect outfit that made me look skinny.
Peter struggled with low energy, constipation, and the weight was creeping up.
We were unhappy and unconscious.
So 2010 Peter took the lead.
He broke up with me and shook everything on its head.
Looking back it's one of the best things that's ever happened to us.
Not how I would have done things, but sometimes that's what it takes to have a wake-up call.
While we were apart, we found a plant-based diet.
We couldn't believe at 22 and 23, this was the first time we heard about this?!
I remember thinking...
Of course I feel like crap, of course I've been sick my entire life, I've never thought once about the food going into my mouth.
I'm thankful that in 2018 #YouAreWhatYouEat and #EatRealFood are trending, but that wasn't the case when we were getting started.
A plant-based diet is what brought us back together.
Since then we've been healing our bodies (because health is a long game), educating ourselves, and now we get to help others do the same thing.
