Show Notes Chapter Markers

Gillian Goerzen was at the healthiest she’d ever been, training for an Ironman… or so it appeared. 

The truth was, she grappling with an eating disorder that sapped her of her energy,  joy, and health. But because she didn’t “look like” she was chronically underfueled, she flew under the radar for years. As the medical community is finally starting to recognize, eating disorders don’t have a certain look.

Today, Gillian is a body-positive health coach, a certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor, and an author who helps her clients ditch diets, programs,  and plans and reclaim their authentic approach to health and fitness. 

Gillian has also traded Ironmans for distance swimming — while managing a rare disease. 

She lives, works, and plays in the traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation, on Vancouver Island in BC, Canada with her two sons, husband and mini-Aussie, Tucker.

In this episode, we discuss: 

  • Training for an Ironman triathlon as a way to “legitimize” a disordered relationship with exercise
  • Embracing joyful movement — despite having to give up running
  • Shifting  from a disordered relationship with food to embracing an intuitive eating approach
  • Can you eat “diet foods” as an intuitive eater? 
  • Why intuitive eating is  more than respecting hunger and fullness cues 
  • Questions to ask yourself if you’re wondering whether your eating and exercise are disordered 
  • Managing life as an athlete, a mom, and a professional with indolent systemic mastocytosis
