Certified health and lifestyle coach and personal trainer Meghann Hempel has the kind of inspiring ‘behind the business’ story that has the makings of a bestselling book.
And we’re going to explore it all on this week’s episode of Captivate + Convert!
Before she started changing her clients’ lives (including mine!), Meghann had her own healing journey to go through — including weaning herself off of psychiatric medications, healing from food & exercise addiction, and recovering from a traumatic brain injury.
This episode is the first of a two-part interview with Meghann. This chapter explores Meghann’s journey from over-medicated child to zombified young mom to healed healer. From rock-bottom bulimia to traumatic brain injury, Meghann has overcome some serious challenges — tune in now to hear her incredible story!
In this episode, we discuss:
✓ How prescription meds affected Meghann’s lifestyle and eating habits — and how long it took her to recover
✓ How a traumatic brain injury forced Meghann to shift her career path
✓ The real lowdown on food addiction, triggers, and food sobriety
