My Battle With Orthorexia | Navigating The Highs and Lows

In this episode of The Chalene Show Podcast, I open up about my personal battle with orthorexia and the challenges I faced along the way.

You will hear about the personal struggles I encountered during my fitness career which included inadequate nutrition, sleep, rest and over exercising. But before we dive in – a quick warning. We’ll be discussing some triggering topics, such as addiction, body image, weight, and exercise. So, please ensure you’re in the right headspace before tuning in.

I share my own experiences and challenges with potential orthorexia and exercise addiction. You’ll hear about the impact these obsessive health habits had on my life and the realizations I had along the way.

We will also discuss the unhealthy diet culture. The constant physical pain caused by excessive exercise and a lack of proper nutrition, and how I got caught up in counting macros, calories, and analyzing ingredients, which ultimately had a negative impact on my well-being and mental health.

Listen to this real, raw, and vulnerable story about my battle with orthorexia and how even today some of those old habits surface.
