It is not easy growing up in a society where “the thinner you are the more powerful you are”. Being a woman in Venezuela, the most beauty-obsessed country in the world is challenging. The pressure to conform to an impossible standard of beauty was, and is, incredible.
Very early in life I started dieting, avoiding different food groups and eliminating what I though were “fattening foods” at that time. I tried every diet on the planet, every pill on the market, and every trick on the books. I had very negative thoughts towards my body and became my biggest obstacle to achieving what I considered then a “perfect” body. I was on the edge of an eating disorder and very confused about my emotional state and body image.
It was not until I stopped obsessing about my weight and focused on my wellbeing that I understood what worked for me. Ever since that moment, I developed a true passion for nutrition and became infatuated with my career. After working in the clinical environment for a couple of years and studying patients actions and reactions, I realized people's bodies, metabolism and habits are different in many ways. The Institute for Integrative Nutrition taught me that the one-size-fits all dietary approach simply doesn’t work. Knowing this inspired me to create "YourDietMethod".
My mission is to assist and teach people proper nutrition suited for their lives so they can conduct a successful and healthy lifestyle and never diet again. I want girls to be comfortable with themselves again, no matter what their environment is. I want women to feel sexy, no matter what their body type is. I want to inspire people to become the best, most healthy version of themselves.
