Meet Maya Robinson.

Aussie born and currently in Bristol, UK.
Nutrition nerd obsessed with body image, human psychology, challenging appearance ideals and shaking up the diet industry.
I spent most of my life struggling with my own body image and disordered eating, feeling disillusioned and frustrated by the mixed messages from the diet and fitness industry.
The more I talked to others about this, the more I realised how universal those feelings can be.
In fact, statistics in the UK show that 61% of adults feel negative about how their body looks.
I realised I wasn't alone; many people have tried multiple diets and felt unhappy with their body.
Many have experienced shame around how often they comfort eat and struggle with their weight, but have felt completely stuck.
Many are sick of feeling like their body image is holding them back from enjoying their life.
I realised that the diet industry repeatedly fails people.
I realised that the media has consistently acted as a breeding ground for making people feel bad about our bodies.
My mission is to educate others on how to shift their focus, and to realise they deserve better than the BS they've been fed about how they should look and what they should eat.
