Why Sharing Your Food Story Can Help You Heal with Erin and Dusty Stanczyk

Do you ever feel stuck and frustrated with your health and eating challenges yet keep your struggles to yourself?

So often we mistakenly believe that our food and body concerns are our own not to be discussed and then we either suffer in silence or even worse try to hide what we’re going through… 

But the truth is, something magical happens when you share your story. 

When you feel brave enough to talk about your story with someone else, it can take you a step further towards transformation. Because when you share something like your struggles with food, it can feel like a thousand pounds being lifted off your chest. 

And oftentimes the person you share it with might say, “I struggle too,” and tell their story to you.

That’s exactly what happened with Erin and Dusty Stancyzk. When they met in college both of them were enjoying the partying life and digging deep to find their purpose. But once they opened up to each other about their health challenges, they ended up slowly overhauling their lifestyles together.

They supported one another and healed individually and as a couple.

Now, Erin and Dusty are certified health and lifestyle coaches and creators of the popular lifestyle brand and website, EatMoveRest. Together with their toddler, Max, and their Bernese Mountain Dog, Beau, they inspire and empower thousands of people to get back to the basics by improving the 3 things we all do every day—eat, move, and rest! 

As you listen to this conversation, you may want to think about who you can share your food story with (the good, the bad, the ugly). 

Can you feel comfortable talking about how that story is impacting your life today?

And if you need it: can you ask for help in writing a new story and creating a stronger relationship with food–and yourself?
