I wanted to come on here and show one of the first times that nutrition introduced itself into my life.
Freshman year of college, I started losing my hair. I wasn’t eating enough, and I wasn’t eating enough of the right foods. I went through a huge transition and moved across the country and I was battling some issues. I started losing my hair and it was devastating. I curled it everyday and wore clip-in extensions to hide it (which only made it worse, I’m sure)
But then- I discovered through my own research- that it probably had something to do with my diet. So I researched and researched. I was a psychology major at the time. I got really into my health and was able to re-grow my hair with the power of food!
The first two pics are from my freshman and sophomore year in college (2011-2012) The third picture is about 2-3 years into my re-growth (2014-2015), and the last picture is from now (2020). It takes time and patience, but I learned a powerful lesson: nutrition affects all processes of your body and poor nutrition will eventually reflect on the outside.
Today I have a BS in Psychology, a BS in dietetics, and a BS in Human Nutrition. Next summer, I’ll be able to call myself a Registered Dietitian. I can’t wait to help my future clients with their goals through the power of food💪🏼🍎🥑🥦
