I'm Betsy Karr a Whole30 Certified Coach. From an early age, I used food as a coping mechanism which led me to develop an unhealthy relationship with food that carried onto my adult life. For the majority of my life, my relationship with food was a rollercoaster. I would yoyo diet, binge eat, use food as comfort, and stress relief. When people would tell me that my eating needed to be a lifestyle and not a diet, I took it as something healthy people that never struggled with weight said.
By 2017, I was the heaviest I had ever been, I felt lost, defeated, I was angry with myself for letting my weight get out of control. I thought, “out of all the things in life that I can’t control, the one thing I CAN control is what I eat” yet, I wasn’t able to control my eating and cravings. With every failed diet attempt, I felt worse about myself, I was depressed and my cravings and obsession with food were out of control.
When I decided to commit to Whole30, I went into it thinking it was going to be difficult but it was the easiest thing I’ve done. You know what was difficult? Feeling out of control, obsessing over food every day, calorie counting diets that made me feel tired and more food-obsessed. Difficult was depression and hating the person I saw in the mirror. Through the Whole 30 program I’ve developed healthy eating habits, yoyo dieting and binge eating have become a thing of the past and my diet has become a lifestyle. Whole30 has been the best thing I’ve done for my health and confidence.
I’m now a Whole30 Certified Coach and offer personalized coaching. I’m here to help and guide you through the program by giving you the tools and support you need to succeed. After your Whole30 I want you to say, “Whole30 and Betsy Karr have been the best things to have happened to my health and confidence.”
