The simple changes dietitian Lyndi Cohen made to feel fabulous and love her body

A lived experience

Lyndi has lived experience of dieting. She was put on her first diet at age 11 and spent the next decade trying to control her weight. It even influenced her career path, as a nutritionist and dietitian. “By 21, I was categorically obese. I had gained a whole heap of weight through these years of dieting and I took stock and thought, ‘I see the trajectory of where this is going’. I knew I had committed, I had tried and, yet, it had led me down this path of self-loathing, of feeling obsessed around food. I knew so much about nutrition, but I felt completely stuck. I knew what I should be doing, but I wasn’t doing it. So, I decided I was going to learn how to stop dieting.”
