Hi, my name is Milda, I’m a HealED Recovery Coach and also a Nutritional Therapist.
My own story with disordered eating lasted just over 10 years, ranging from dieting, bulimic behaviours to binge eating. Although I have spent my teenage years being a very active child and even spent a few years training and competing vigorously, I’d still wake up EVERY MORNING hating and scrutinising my body and my looks. I was constantly trying out new detoxes, diets and fads, yet I’d always come back to bingeing, shame and self-loathing.
Recovery for me was very gradual and took a couple of years, partially because I was still resisting the fact that I really needed help. I’ve followed the principles of Bulimia Help Method that I heard there and there, however finding the book has really opened my eyes and made so much sense of why, what and when- if only I found it earlier!
Yet, I’m a believer that everything happens for a reason and in the right time. The lessons I learnt along the way to recovery have been invaluable. I’ve immersed myself in meditation practices, teachings of yoga and wholeheartedness that helped me reconnected to my body, people around me and helped me find my identity lost for so many years.
Always interested and passionate about natural living and healing properties of food, after recovering I have qualified as a Nutritional Therapist and practice with a naturopathic approach. I passionately believe that the body is capable of healing itself, if we only give it tools to do so. I am thrilled to share my personal experience and nutritional knowledge in helping others get their life back too!
What can I say? The Binge Code is the only thing that has helped me to reclaim my life from Bulimia.
The best part is, I never thought it would be so easy!
If I had known just how simple and relatively quick recovery could be, I would have started years ago. Once I started balancing my blood sugar and eating more frequently, I found I felt (and even looked) healthier than ever.
After just six months of coaching, my wonderful coach Milda suggested I was ready to leave the program and go back to monitoring my eating on my own.
I was scared and definitely encountered setbacks, but she provided me with so many easy-to-use tools that I was able to pick back up on my own and continue to live a life free from food obsession.
Binge Code Coaching did so much more than just help me to stop feeling crazy around food; it gave me my life back.
Once my blood sugar was balanced and I could think more clearly, I started to realize that I’m not living the life I want to be living, and started working towards new goals and a new career.
My relationships are better, my life feels calmer, and I have a newfound sense of confidence and self-love I couldn’t have achieved without Milda.
“I am indebted to The Binge Code but in particular, Milda Zolubaite, for the support I received when recovering from my eating disorder. Milda was always compassionate, kind, and non-judgemental; I felt completely safe talking to her about what were often very sensitive, painful experiences.
I travel a lot with work so the ease of accessibility was a huge factor for me when signing up to the service. Ultimately, the proof is in the results.
I had severe bulimia and anorexia for seventeen years and I thought I would struggle with these issues for the rest of my life. I’m almost three years free from any symptoms and I have never once been tempted to return to my old, destructive way of living.
I didn’t know it was possible for me to feel such peace and freedom. Binge Code and Milda played a huge part in that and I’m so grateful.”
I suffered with bulimia for over 15 years. I’d given up all hope for recovery/normal life.
I thought I’d suffer with my eating disorder for the rest of my life. I was too afraid to go to a treatment center, but at the time that’s the only way I thought recovery might be possible. It wasn’t until I came across “The Bulimia Help Method” audio book in October 2016, that I realized “maybe I can do this”? It was the first time I’s ever felt a glimpse of hope for recovery.
When I first heard the concepts in the book, I realized there might not be anything “wrong” with me, just that I was starving. My body was trying to keep be alive. It was instinctual…. the binging and purging behaviors were my bodies way of keeping me alive.
Once I completed the audio book, I knew I could do it! I just needed a little more help and guidance. Shortly after I finished the book, I did a little research and I learned that there was a coaching program offered by Ali (the author of The Bulimia Help Method) through the Binge code website. So I signed up for 1 – 1 coaching. That is when I met Milda! Where to even start……. I consider Milda one of the most influential pieces to my recovery.
I worked with Milda for over a year and a half. We had a coaching call once a week where she walked me through each step of the method/process. She helped me focus on the building blocks for a solid foundation of my recovery.
- Structured eating,
- learning my hunger and satiety cues,
- restoring my body weight,
- learning new coping skills,
- body image work,
- intuitive eating
- and so much more.
Not only did Milda help me on my recovery journey, she picked me up when I didn’t have the strength to keep going.
She held my hand and reassured me that I was in fact strong enough to keep going. Without Milda, I cannot say I would be where I am today. 3.5 years into my recovery journey!
Although Milda and I no longer have coaching calls every week, I will always consider Milda one of my greatest friends! I am forever GRATEFUL!
