Episode 46: The Power of Journalling in Eating Disorder Recovery with Stefanie Jung

by Podcast

Today I’m joined by health coach and yoga teacher Stefanie Jung of Wholesome Stef. Born in Germany, but a citizen of the world, Stef used to have a very destructive relationship to food and her body, and struggled with anorexia, bulimia and all the nasty grey areas in between.

But one day she decided enough was enough, bought a journal, got some help along the way in the form of a health coach and started working on getting to know herself better.

Today Stef has a much gentler approach to nutrition, exercise and her body.

In this episode Stef and I discuss:

  • The ups and downs of healing from an eating disorder
  • The power of journaling in recovery and
  • How she found her balance with food and fitness again
