Hi there! I'm Elizabeth Walling, founder of The Nourished Life, and author of The Nourished Metabolism and Love Your Body.
I wrote The Nourished Metabolism because learning how to heal my metabolism is what changed my health and my life.
In 2008, I was a tired, snappy, miserable young mom. I was at war with my body, hungry all the time, and obsessed with food.
I began studying metabolic health and nutrition, and what have I learned?
It's not about eating an ancient berry from South America or avoiding all the foods you love--it's all about balance, small changes, and learning to work with your body.
I believe that we don't need another diet plan -- we need to listen to our bodies!
After a lot of trial and error, I finally figured out what my body needed (turns out it was much less complicated than I'd thought!).
What happened then? I was me again! No more exhaustion, no more crazy mood swings. I was able to let go of my obsession with food, and learned to feel comfortable in my own skin for the first time in my life.
I wrote this book because I don't want you to go through the pain I went through -- torturing myself trying to be "healthy" and getting nowhere.
This book puts together everything I (eventually) realized is important for living a happy, healthy life. I learned the hard way, but you don't have to.
