102. Hypothalamic Amenorrhea Recovery & ditching diet culture with HAES Personal Trainer Shreen El Masry

Today I’m joined by Shreen El Masry, a non-diet, body inclusive personal trainer and certified intuitive eating counsellor.

Shreen is passionate about changing the narrative that diet culture has ingrained in many women by helping them achieve body acceptance. She helps women have fun with movement and find food freedom through a supportive, non-judgmental and compassionate community.

Based in Sydney, Australia, Shreens program ‘Be You Be Free’ values, welcomes, celebrates and respects all bodies.

Shreen discovered the HAES community through her own recovery from an eating disorder and hypothalamic amenorrhea, giving her the inspiration to help other women do the same. 

Today Shreen and I discuss:

  • Shreen’s journey from a life surrounded by diet culture to becoming a successful mother and business owner with a passion for helping others 
  • How gym environments need to change with an emphasis on the awareness needed around women looking after their bodies 
  • Why creating HAES judgement free spaces is so important 
  • Shreen’s own battle with an eating disorder and how she worked to shift her mindset around food and exercise 
  • Hypothalamic amenorrhea, Shreen’s diagnosis and how she healed her body 
  • Why Hypothalamic Amenorrhea recovery was the ‘final step’
