135. From Fitness Instructor with No Period to Food Freedom and Pregnant with Pegah Esmaili

Today on the show I’m joined by Pegah Esmaili, a wife, new mama to baby Cyra, and a daughter of the king. A absolute light beam of positivity, Pegah’s passion is encouraging women to walk in faith and freedom. After years of battling with her own body image, it’s now her mission to share her messy story of recovery in hopes of helping other women.

In this podcast we get to insight into her journey of no period for over 10 years to pregnant, and now what her life is like as a new mom.

Some of the highlights from today’s episode include:

  • When she believed her relationship with food went from healthy to extreme
  • The impact of a bad break up on her body image and relationship with exercise
  • The traps of clean eating and fitness magazine diet plans
  • Getting stuck in a false sense of security while on the pill
  • When she decided to prioritise her hormone health
  • The positives and negatives she experienced while working to recover her period
  • How she found out she was pregnant only after a few recovery periods
  • What her pregnancy journey was like
  • The fear of giving birth and her birth story
  • What life is like now as a new mom and how recovery has impacted her life for the better
