Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

*Note: this page was published on July 26th 2013. Since then, some of my principles have changed to suit a more fast-paced college lifestyle. Nevertheless, all these health ideas suggested are still great, and I am striving to return to these healthful and sustainable habits. 

My name is Izzy, I am a student, and I have been self-diagnosed with ONCD or Obsessive Nutrition Compulsive disorder for a few years now. My compulsive ‘nutrition-obsessive’ behaviors have probably started from the moment I had my ‘health epiphany’.

A ‘health epiphany’ is basically the realization that one has been living an unhealthy lifestyle, and has since discovered new and exciting ways to improve it, either through diet or other changes. I’ve seen this with a lot of other ‘health’ bloggers, but their ‘epiphany’ usually comes after a significant moment in their lives i.e. diagnosis of diet-related disease(like diabetes), significant weight gain, drastic change in diet(like vegetarianism).

For me, my ‘health epiphany’ had been a gradual process, and its drive nothing dramatic and moving. My tale is that; as a young girl, I had the typical infatuation over having a ‘perfect body image’, to look like my favourite celebrity and have flawless skin(I’m sure most females have experienced this period of puberty blues). I decided to do something about it and gradually began to eat more healthily and changed routine i.e. going to bed earlier, drinking more water.

After about a year(I’ve never noticed myself), people began to comment on my flawless skin and family members noticed how lean I’ve become. You can imagine my delight! But what drove me to learn more about nutrition was simply for the fun of it(For some reason, I really enjoy learning about the chemical interactions of food nutrition with our body and the various properties of different foods. I’m sure there are some people out there who feels the same).

However, my innocent interest in nutrition soon became an addiction. Over a period of three years, I have basically become ‘radicalized’. Here are some of my current health rules;

Absolutely no refined flour, cut off all sugar(what’s the point of empty calories?), no junk food, no packaged foods(evil corps! Except for some foods like canned beans or other veggies that do gain more nutrients through the canning process), no unhealthy oil (i.e. deep-fried foods)

Other than that I’m also a ‘quasi-vegan’ = I don’t eat any animal products except for organic or free-range eggs and fish heads YUM(a seafood by-product).

As you can see I eat some pretty weird foods and have health rules a lot of people might think crazy or impossible. But on this blog, I’d like to share some of my pretty awesome health and diet tips(that have definitely worked for me and may work great for you too!), ultimately healthy recipes i.e. no sugar high protein carrot cake, just to show that crazy people like me do exists a lifestyle that’s both healthy(albeit a bit extreme) and good for the environment can be achieved!

A bit of background: I live with my mum on a small island country populated with large numbers of hooved animals. Some of my hobbies include yoga, baking, writing and searching up nutritional values and recommended intakes.
