If you’re still sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions, keep up the good work! If you’ve been letting them slip, perhaps you can use some Balanced Inspiration!
In our third and final instalment of the Start Today Series, Sharisse Dalby (Registered Nutritional Counsellor) shares her inspirational journey from overcoming depression and an eating disorder to achieving a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
Based in Vancouver, BC, Sharisse consults both in-person and online with families, children, and individuals to discover the cause of health concerns to get them back to their optimal health.
As a pre-teen Sharisse turned to food for comfort and eventually started binge eating and was diagnosed as clinically depressed.
Sharisse realized she needed to make a change for herself, and started to look at food differently.
Things like food was more than just calories, it was actually fuel and had a purpose in my body.
At 22 years old, Sharisse began schooling to become a nutritionist. She turned her health around both mentally and physically.
Sharisse’ advice for those who want to start eating healthy:
- Increase intake of vegetables – crucial for digestive system
- Increase intake of water – helps with brain health, concentration
