Episode 088: Overcoming Orthorexia with Kate Markovitz

In this episode, I’m joined by Kate Markovitz, a Nutritional Therapy Consultant, a 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach, creator of The Mindfull Makeover program, and an Executive Director with Beautycounter, as well as a holistic lifestyle & personal growth advocate for women who are over media dogma and want to be free and confident in their own skin.

One day a few months ago over on Instagram, she shared how she struggled and overcame Orthorexia (having an unhealthy obsession with being healthy, most commonly through diet and exercise).

I connected to it because in hindsight, Orthorexia was something that I lived through too. So, I invited Kate to join me for a real-people episode to have a deeper discussion on this topic.

You’ll hear us each share:

  • Our stories on what led us to develop Orthorexia

  • What life was like as we lived through it

  • What were the defining moments that pulled us on the other side

  • And what helped us most past it
