Hey, I'm emma, I'm 15, and I live in England.
I come from a competitive background of racing, racing, and more racing. I was always trying to better myself, and henceforth I became interested in nutrition. Unfortunately, at first, I went about it the wrong way: purely calories in, calories out. Then when I found out about 'healthy whole grains' I began to implement that, as well as cutting calories waaay down for an active 13 year old girl.
Eventually, whether it was lack of interest, energy, or just general disdain, I quit, and followed a strict paleo diet to lose weight. I thought, after that, I'd get back to racing...but I haven't yet.
I was incredibly strict: no fruit, minimal dairy, below 50g of carbs per day. Yeah, i lost weight.. But things happened and i began to develop a BED. What I mean by that is: I was binging once per week? But the binge was the only thing I began to look forward to. I was obsessed with junk food, to the point that if I didn't get any, I would panic and frantically think of when I could next fit a binge in.
Thankfully, that's no longer. I have a much better attitude to food, and life now. I'm still overweight, but I'm enjoying eating healthfully, going to the gym, and learning about it all. I think my mum is even coming round to it - we've clashed quite a lot in the past about it all. Hell, I may even get back into racing so yeah, enjoying the lifestyle of healthiness and education ;p

Maybe I always knew/my fragile dreams would be broken
