About the Author
My name is Lauren Bersaglio and I am in my final year of University, studying Professional Writing. I believe in God, wearing eyeliner, and eating dessert. I was born in Canada, grew up in Africa, and currently call Vancouver, BC home. I am the Founding President of Libero Network – a not-for-profit online magazine & resource site for those recovering from overcome eating disorders, depression, addiction, anxiety, and abuse.
I first came across Intuitive Eating in Anne Lamott’s book Travelling Mercies. When I entered into recovery for an eating disorder I’d struggled with for nearly five years, I began the process of developing a healthier relationship with food and my body, and that is when I began to embrace Intuitive Eating, and not only did it change the way I approached food, but it also changed the way I approached my body and myself. Intuitive Eating brought me freedom, freedom from life previously spent imprisoned by calorie counting, weight monitoring, and hunger (both physical and spiritual).
I can now say with confidence that I have a healthier relationship with food and my body than I have ever had – and Iknow without a doubt Intuitive Eating is what brought me to this place, and that is why I am dedicated to share my story and what I’ve learned to bring truth to an area so filled with false hopes and lies. I am excited to share my journey with you!
