After spending an entire childhood viewing food as her partner in crime and the caretaker of her soul, Ilana Muhlstein realized that she had to make a change. Years of seeing her weight yo-yo back and forth and realizing the impact it had on her health were the catalyst she needed to make a change.
Now she is a Registered Dietitian and has created the 2B Mindset that she has been teaching to men and women all over the world. Listen as she shares more about her story and why she is a firm believer in the scale. Plus you won’t want to miss out on connecting with her through TikTok!
