Today we’d like to introduce you to Farah Green.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
My name is Farah M. Green, also known as, the Body Positive Nutritionist, and I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. After graduating from American University and studying journalism and public health, I moved to Seattle, WA. During my time in Seattle, WA I became depressed due to the weather, a demanding job in the media, lack of support and body image issues. While there, I experienced dark thoughts and mental breakdowns. I would hit the gym hard every morning at 6am praying that I would have a breakthrough and find happiness, but instead I was disliking the woman that I was becoming. Despite my mind and body having a physical fight, I was determined to get them aligned. I began studying food science and started training for races. In less than a year, I competed in 10 5K/10K races and a half marathon. I then decided to become a certified nutritionist and personal trainer to help more curvy women overcome similar challenges throughout their journey.
