Before starting this program Natalia was struggling with emotional eating and self identity after doing a bikini competition.
One side of her wanted to go off plan, eat with loved ones, and not care about macros or calories anymore while the other side of her wanted to stay on point with her plan.
Working in the program she was able to realize what was important to her, how she could enjoy the best of both worlds, and ways she could further align with her ideal self.
She was done with feeling guilty and ashamed of her choices and found that during and after this program she was able to identity where the desire to go off plan was coming from and how she could combat the urge to self-sabotage without completely restricting herself from enjoying time with loved ones.
She shares how she felt about her experience in my food relationship program and how beneficial it was for her to come to terms with her true desires and needs as it pertains to this lifestyle so she could start seeing even greater success with peace of mind.
Natalia says it was not just about improving her relationship with food but also with herself which was huge for her and hopes others feel inspired to take the leap of faith to find this peace for themselves too :)

Carley recently completed my Food Relationship Healing and Discovery Coaching Program and vulnerably opened up to tell her story in hopes of inspiring others who may relate...
Carley reached out to me 2 weeks after being on lockdown and having completely lost control of her commitment to nutrition and training leading to a 20-25LBS weight gain in 2 weeks
But this was not the problem she needed support with. She reached out to me realizing she had an issue with her relationship with food and her body. She had also been using the gym as a distraction from her relationship ending back in January so when the gyms closed her depression skyrocketed leaving her feeling even more hopeless.
She talks about these experiences and what it was like to start working together. Carley talks about how we started focusing on her getting comfortable around all food again without overwhelming anxiety or discomfort when it came to nourishing her body.
It didn't take long for Carley to see the work we were doing was more than just being comfortable around a piece of cake or an oreo as she said. She shares how much we focused on emotions and how her emotions were driving her decisions as well as where they were coming from.
We also did work around her body image in which we detached her from her body to see the body as a separate entity which she says made a huge impact on her discovering how to be her own best friend, love herself, be comfortable alone, and not need the gym as a distraction but rather as one of many ways to love herself.
When she said it was the"MOST LIFE CHANGING MONTH I HAVE EVER HAD" I gotta be honest, I felt soooo overwhelmed with joy because I LOVED working with Carley. Her committed spirit and leave nothing on the table attitude is what truly led to her success in our work together. Like many of my clients she came to me for help with her relationship with food to end the binging and the negative choices and constant self loathing and left with even more than she expected because she went all in with me!
Carley talks about the impact of this program on her life and relationships as she talks about how it helped her to let of toxic relationships, find self love and self respect and ultimately even attract a man who she believes is perfect for her!. PLUS she became her own closest friend in her rediscovery of who she is.
Carley emphasizes that this program really goes well beyond surface level issues presenting as food, which is rarely the issue, and opens up opportunities to understand, care for, and find love for yourself.
Of course, you must be willing to go into parts of you and your life that may be painful but she says it was life changing and goes on to express that she recommends it to anyone who is struggling, not just with food but in anything because of my commitment to guiding and supporting you as someone you can trust while also empowering and encouraging you to commit to the work necessary to see that "self-love is the best anti-depressant".
Carley says, "If you are thinking about working with Celeste she is an excellent option for help and it is the best option because not fake, artificial, or processed--it is discovering self-love"

From Overeating Oreos, Non-Stop Thinking About Food, and Disarray to Complete Freedom, Peace of Mind, Trust and Happiness; Arianna Share's Her Story
Before Arianna decided to transition from bikini to figure she took 18 months off to prepare. She hadn't realized the new level of demand she would need to place on her body and mind. When she entered figure, her diet was harder for her with more restrictive dieting and a more intense program to help her develop a leaner physique.
She had been struggling with her diet adherence for awhile and realized she had a problem when her eating got out of hand with binging all the time and nonstop thinking about food. She couldn't think about anything except for when her next meal would be, if she would be able to stay on track, and how she would make up for it if she didn't.
Arianna started feeling like a failure to herself, her coach, and her own expectations. One day she decided to reach out to me, after following me for a long time. She realized she needed help after trying a million things to work through this and saw my program as a last resort. Arianna even admits in this video that she didn't think the program would really help her and when she saw it she was skeptical.
Arianna never thought she would overcome her unhealthy relationship with food. Now she can stop eating when she is full, she has ended the restrictive mindset that would keep her stuck in, "tomorrow I will get back on plan so I have to eat everything now!!" which has allowed her to achieve her goal of eating something off plan without it turning into an all out binge fest. She used to not be able to have an oreo cookie without eating the whole pack. Now, with a healthier relationship with food she is able to even just have half an oreo.
Arianna talks about her experience working with me and the approach I take in digging for information, asking questions, and getting to the core of the situation, pulling out the details from my clients, like her, to analyze and put in perspective. Arianna shares how everything we did helped her to move forward because, rather than ignore the issue, we look it right in the face and deal with it.
She shares why she would recommend the program to anyone, regardless of their relationship with food, how many times they've competed, what level they're at in competing or how 'good' of a dieter they are.
Arianna expresses that things can come up throughout your life that causes your head to get caught up whether it is with food, or a negative body image causing you to stress about gaining weight, especially post show.
"She [Celeste] has helped me in more ways than I ever thought anybody could help me, i am at a point where i am really happy I'm not food obsessed if i want to eat something i eat it i still stick to my macros but in a healthy mindful way rather than an obsessive way and i highly recommend this to anyone...".
Arianna also talks about her fears going into quarantine or being home all day around food. She used to not be able to be at home on her days off. Now she can stay home all day without worrying about food at all. She talks about her current approach to nutrition and how this program has impacted her ability to go about her day without obsessing over food all day.
Instead of snacking all day, eating non-stop, "shoving as many things in a split second" she can now be happy, and at peace with food totally fine when home all day which she never thought was possible until it became her reality.
Ready to make the change in your relationship with food and find true peace of mind and freedom like Arianna has?

How Healing Her Relationship with Food Helped Christine Feel Hopeful for Her Future in All Areas of Her Life
Before Christine became a bikini competitor, she was an equestrian and grew up with a history of body obsession and food related distortions.
In this video, Christine vulnerably shares her history with Anorexia, Weight loss and weight gain, going to an Outpatient Therapy center when she was in college because her mom wanted her to, and how she didn't take her health seriously until one day she couldn't ignore the negative tendencies anymore.
Christine opens up about how stress, sadness, and grieving the loss of her best friend started bringing up her negative relationship with food and the harmful behaviors associated with a lifetime of ignoring the problem.
Christine talks about how she got into bodybuilding, found my 'Confessions of a Bikini Pro' Podcast and constantly contemplated the idea of working with me to improve her relationship with food and her body.
At a wedding though, she found herself feeling super anxious and overly focused on the food that she couldn't truly enjoy herself there in the present moment. The spiraling behaviors continued and when she talked to her coach, she expressed and knew that she had to be in a good mental space to have the most successful prep she could have and be the best athlete she could be.
When Christine signed up to work with me in my Food Relationship Healing & Discovery Program, we identified her triggers, association patterns, and where her 'out of control' feelings led her to avoid living.
She now can go out with her boyfriend without obsessing over the food like she found herself doing at the wedding which showed her she needed to take action for herself. She says she can enjoy food without the guilt, shame, and worry that used to always come with it.
Christine talks about how terrifying it was to admit she needed help but that she is so glad she did because she says 'I just feel like my future has a lot more in it now because the cycle of binge, hide, restrict, shame, guilt is exhausting...'.
Christine reached out to me a few weeks after completing the program, when COVID-19 lockdown began actually, and expressed how grateful she was to be able to sit at home, surrounded by food all day, and not be stressed, anxious, or feeling like she was going to lose control at any moment. She shares how amazing it feels to finally have something she has never had in her whole life-food freedom.
I hope you love watching this video, hearing her experience, and truly know that if you can relate, you can also get through this! Christine stepped up for herself and said 'I need help' and now she can confidently move in the direction of her goals as a woman, doctor, competitor, and anything else she chooses to become or pursue.
I am so grateful I could be part of her journey and help to facilitate such an amazing to witness internal transformation, healing, and growth. Christine truly went all in on this program and was such an incredible client to work with because of her dedication and commitment to finally resolving and working through this.
If you are feeling the nudge to get the help you need and make peace with food so you can end the distracting, detrimental, and draining obsession of what you will eat, how you eat, guilt, shame, frustration, parties, having food around, triggers and all other negative beliefs, behaviors, and patterns; I invite you to learn more about and apply for my Food Relationship Healing & Discovery Program now.

Jessica's Story to Overcoming Emotional Eating, Learning to Trust Herself Around Food, & Eliminating Anxiety of Overeating, Guilt, and the Up & Down Rollercoaster
In this video, my client Jessica, shares her experience with finally overcoming the struggles she has faced with food for over 20 years.
Something really cool about her story is that she and I had been in contact with each other for awhile. Jessica waited a year to join this program and watching this video back was so cool because she strongly urges others to join as she reflects on how different her life would have been had she joined sooner.
Jess opens up about how frustrating it was to go through preps and improvement seasons with emotional eating that left her feeling totally out of control and lost.
One day she realized, she needed to do something about it for real because the things she tried before just weren't cutting it. She was so afraid to have food in her house, could not have just one bite of food without it turning into a complete all or nothing eating fest, and was constantly judging herself for the food she was eating.
Jess talks about how she was able to overcome years and years and years of problems from her life (not even just food related), tackle them, and finally find freedom. She discusses the impact this freedom with food and knowledge of herself has had on her life and relationships.
She shares how immediately she was able to become a silent observer of what felt like two different voices and identities in her head so she could learn from them and apply the principles within the program using my PTG process to step into a new version of herself that she always wanted to be.
Jess celebrates how she has been able to become the best person she has ever been without any stress around food, finally being able to feel normal around all foods, and having no attachment between food and emotions. The best part is, she can't even imagine ever going back to the way things were because her change has been that impactful.
She can listen to her body more, fuel her body better, and hasn't been punishing herself for eating, going off plan like crazy, or even forcing herself to do things out of judgement, fear, guilt, or shame.
Jess expresses that she has a better quality of life with the trust she has in herself, the understanding of her emotions, and the way she has been able to get to know herself even better.
Jess was able to end the emotional eating, release the control food had over her, and finally step into the person she always dreamed of being. "Do this program, you should have done it months ago but now you have the opportunity...I know that you're ready if you're watching this video so go do it"

In this client spotlight, bikini competitor Fran Rico shares how she has overcome her previously never-ending cycle of binging, guilt, shame, purging through excess cardio, hating her body, and never feeling in control.
Fran opens up about how her body image played a big role in her relationship with food. After constantly going off plan, obsessing over food with constant nagging thoughts of it, not loving her body, and not truly making the most of her improvement season; Fran knew something had to give.
She went through my free post-show blues coaching series after having an extreme anxiety attack over a holiday meal in November 2019 after her show. Going through that mini program opened her up to my Peace Through Growth Process.
Fast forward to February, she saw a post of mine inviting people into my Food Relationship Program and knew she had to join. Fran breaks down some of the processes she loved learning and implementing in the program, things she found helpful, and the fact that it requires commitment and trust to create the freedom and peace of mind she was able to create for herself.
She opens up about how she has never loved her body as much as she does now and finally has true freedom with food and a new level of appreciation for herself and her programming.
For Fran, this was not just about overcoming the negative cycle, it was able completely changing the cycle and creating a new one; we did exactly that.

Danielle Shares How She Overcame Emotional Eating & Self-Sabotage and Found her 'Golden Ticket' to Fitness Success
In this video, my client Danielle talks about how my Food Relationship Healing and Discovery 1:1 Coaching Program made a difference in her life and on her fitness journey. She shares what inspired her to reach out to me for help, one of the major takeaways she got from the program, and how life has been weeks after completing the program.
Danielle has been able to commit to the action steps, tools, and reflections she gained from the program to change her negative and limiting patterns to ones that serve her on her journey to achieving her fitness goals, feeling amazing in her own skin, moving forward with her commitments to herself, and finally having the ability to face things head on that previously would have crippled her and left her feeling like a failure.
Danielle came to me with hopes of working on her relationship with food after realizing that it wasn't all about diet and training and that getting help with this would be her 'golden ticket' and the 'missing key'.
She was inspired to start to face the struggles she was having with thoughts and behaviors with food. From driving out to get fast food, eat emotionally, and sabotage her results she knew she needed to address this so she could finally get the results she has been working so hard for in her fitness journey!
Danielle no longer finds herself going to fast food or turning to food for comfort because of the work we were able to do together. In the video she shares one of the biggest takeaways she had from the program and how it has continuously helped her to change her automatic behaviors from resorting to food to actually addressing the emotion and choosing to replace it with a new behavior pattern.
From her commitment to the program she has been able to shift her autopilot mode from a negative and sabotaging place to a constructive, freeing, and empowering place.
Danielle says that if you are struggling to achieve your goals despite having all the tools and knowledge then this program could be your golden ticket like it was for her.
