035 Food Obsession & Disordered Eating with Madelyn Moon
Maddy Moon had the “Perfect Body” and She Still Wasn’t Happy
At a very young age, Maddy became obsessed with how food and exercise could make her look.
She developed a lifestyle, a body and frankly – an obsession – that (in her own words) took the place of relationships, mental health, relationships, sleep, food, her menstrual cycle, relationships, a healthy metabolism, happiness, RELATIONSHIPS, and anything else that is truly important in life.
Today, Maddy helps people see the light
Maddy has exchanged the “perfect body” (it wasn’t), for a balanced, happy, healthy, sexy, rich life. (And, oh, PS – she’s beautiful, beautifully healthy, and blissfully un-obssessed.) She helps others through her blog, her Mind Body Musings podcast as well as her coaching to find peace in their relationships with food and their own bodies.
