How Binge Eating Made Me A Better Girlfriend.

In honor of Eating Disorder Awareness Week and the end of a fun, intimate month; this week, I am going to welcome you into my own life of struggles with disordered eating and into my intimate relationship. Both; our relationship with food and our intimate relationships are directly interconnected with each other and you will know exactly how so.

However, since it is the end of the month of LOVE, your opportunities are limited to grab your FREE pdf to

Now lets me start by explaining the differences between all the forms of eating disorders, and disordered eating. Not all eating disordered are the same; they are complex and have a psychological cause of them.  The uneducated, hear the term “eating disorder” and immediately picture a young woman with all her clothes drape like curtains on her thin frame, fatigue drawn onto her face with the edges of her facial bones.  This is NOT the face of every eating disorder/disordered eating!

It is the 13 year old girl who just started her journey into her womanhood, who discretely slips off to the bathroom after every meal in order to stick her finger down her throat so she will continue looking for her friends but mean while chronically in fear of being “found out” and her ongoing body changes.

It is the male high school wrestler, gorging himself on every food he deprived himself in order to meet weight class weight.

It is the 52-year-old, mother of 2 children who after a regular 12 hour work day and driving her kids to and from soccer practices; can’t trust herself to stop eating once the first bite touches her lips. She fears the animal-like urge that leads her to devour all & anything in arm’s length, the cycle of guilt that always follows.


Research suggests that up to 50% of the population demonstrate problematic or disordered relationships with food, body, and exercise. Rates of clinical eating disorders are much lower, estimated from 1% to 3% of the general population.  -Psychology Today

Eating disorders included Anorexia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Bulimia Nervosa, and etc. The type of eating disorder that has consumed me in some moments in my past and (alert: vulnerable moment) still at times, is….Binge Eating.

Through my transition out of the bodybuilding industry; my body, my emotions, and my relationships were changing. Due to the lack of EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids), I had deprived my body while in the industry; my body was craving, savaging around from grocery store to grocery store, and ultimately devouring within 15 minutes an entire 2lb container of almond butter. A situation I still find myself when I am not tapped into…..

When food was no longer easily assessable, the consciousness slowly crept up with the help of empty jars, opened wrappers, dirty dishes in the sick, and etc. Then the most dangerous parts starts; the thoughts which lead to our emotions following the event.

Consciousness is the strongest alley for anyone who is given the beautiful gift of eating disorders/disordered eating. This super power is how I went from a perfectionist is driven, 5 years long single, 29-year-old, girl to a self-confident, strong, 30-year-old, women in a vulnerable and open-dialogue relationship.


Like many of us, it is much easier to place a mask over our own consciousness. However, ignoring symptoms, conflict, and/or resistance will never resolve the true cause of the disordered eating, issues in relationships, and etc. Becoming conscious of our opportunities, struggles, and gifts in whatever form they appear allows us to set our standards; in our self-worth, relationships, and all areas of life. by setting, practice consistently, expect and have courage enough to speak those standards to my boyfriend; I believe we have gained mutual respect and self-confidence. Confidence; which we all know is what real men, who are lucky to have such an amazing imperfect woman,  find the most attractive in a woman. (no matter weight, body type, or looks)

The Food of the Gods…

“Cacao beans are probably the best-kept secret in the entire history of food.”

– David Wolfe


Can you guess what we will talk about today? That’s right….CHOCOLATE!! That’s right ladies, our favorite euphoria releasing food. Oh how I love chocolate!

But before we “bite” into why we love chocolate so much, let me state how excited I am about the topic I have in stored for you this month. Wait a minute…. Take a deep breath. Do you feel that? 
Do you feel the LOVE in the air? Whether you are married, in a relationship, or single February is the month of love.

To enhance that feeling of love throughout the whole month, grab your FREE PDF now>>> 


Now let’s have some fun!

According to the US Department of Commerce, the average American consumes 10 pounds of “traditional” chocolate yearly. Crazy right? That’s a whole lot of chocolate!  When I say “traditional” chocolate I simply mean the chocolate your get at convenient stores, or the chocolates always laying around at your grandma’s house; the same chocolates with highly processed cocoa, milk, and large amounts of sugar. This explains why we can become “chocoholics”.

So what is “real” chocolate? Raw caoca. (Nope, that is not a spelling mistake.) Cacao is actually the bean from the fruit. The bean that has been more valuable than currency for ancient cultures, and now consider the healthiest “superfood” of our time!

*Click to learn Caoca’s longevity health benefits, forms of caoca you can consume daily, and why women crave chocolate more than men.*


Chocolate is a very powerful substance which deserves respect when consuming it; enjoyment & pleasure in every bite.

Thyroid Awareness Month: Edition 2

Well, HELLO!

Big warm welcome!

As you may have guessed, it is THYROID AWARENESS MONTH! And if you read my last post I summarized my history of my thyroid, the stats about those who have thyroid dysfunction, and the first action step you can take today! If you want to read that post, this link will direct you straight there.


As I have promised in my last post, I will give you some natural remedies for thyroid imbalance. This is personally my favorite part once I speak with my one-on-one clients. However, these recommendations won’t have lasting results unless you consistently!


NUTRITION Recommendations

Hypothyroidism/Hashimoto’s   &   Hyperthyroidism/Grave’s:

Foods high in selenium! According to Dr.Axe.com;

“Selenium acts as a powerful protector of the thyroid and regulates the production of reactive oxygen within the gland, and protects it from antibodies that can create thyroid disease. For these reasons, selenium benefits are also being investigated to see if they can help patients with Hashimoto’s disease, Grave’s disease, and in pregnant women with anti-TPO antibodies. Selenium may be able to increase immunity, lower autoimmune reactions, and to lower inflammation in these populations.”

(Thank you Dr. Axe for providing this photo.)


Wellness Tips – MOVEMENT/FITNESS

Movement plays an enormous part in our health & longevity. That, of course, includes our thyroid function.

It hard to get through an intense cardio workout, or how about the muscle weakness when trying to lift your own body. I completely can relate to both and all of the above.  The video below is a new fitness technique that can actual improve your thyroid and give you more energy.

Ever heard of HIIT? High-Intensity Interval Training? This technique is better explained by DR. DOUG McGUFF.

In this video; Dr. McGuff is demonstrating slow HIIT. By doing this type of weight training you are activating multiple muscles at the same time equaling more muscle gain and fat loss.


Alternative Technique – ESSENTIAL OILS

ATTENTION to my fellow aromatherapist or essential oil users! Here is a blend that can directly help aid your thyroid.

 3 drops of FRANKINCENSE essential oil

5 drops LEMONGRASS essential oil

5 drops CLOVE essential oil

Carrier oil (Jojoba oil, coconut oil, almond oil, & etc.)

Combine all in ROLLER BOTTLE

Once all combined, apply directly to the thyroid area and rub gently.

***You can also try putting two drops of FRANKINCENSE essential oil on the roof of your mouth twice daily***


Knowing that the end of this month is coming to an end, I kinda sad about it. There is so much to learn about this amazing gland…THYROID.

Thyroid Awareness Month: Edition 1

Hey there. Welcome!

If you are a follower of my Bi-Weekly Wholistic Health Coaching; you received an intro to my experience of understanding this very important gland…THYROID!

Now, if you don’t receive my Bi-Weekly Health Coaching; click here NOW to start getting these amazing & valuable nuggets!


My story and the thyroid connection starts roughly three years ago.  A little factoid of me; your Health Coach about three years ago I was deeply obsessed in the bodybuilding industry. That’s right; I was a slave to my weight lifting schedule (Mondays – Back & Bi’s, Tuesdays – Tri’s & Chest, and etc.) and also a slave to the clock. Eating the same foods every day, every three hours on the minute.(Chicken, broccoli,  brown rice, and etc.)

Thinking meanwhile, “I’m living healthy!”  Does not sound healthy to you?!

What little did my fellow gym rats know was; I didn’t have a period in three years (aka not ovulating), had cystic acne all over my gin/jaw line, and difficult sleeping. These are prime examples of symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

As stated in my Bi-Weekly Coaching I explained my next steps of action. First, I went to my OBGYN assuming they would know about hormones. at that moment I was given a gift of reality. They tested only my TSH thyroid level and only told me, “Your thyroid is normal”. Well, most like a lot of people I did NOT feel normal. So that is when I started to learn more about the thyroid. It’s function/importance, how to help it heal itself, what tests to ask my doctor for to get a true & full understanding!


That is where I want to start with you. No one blood drawn, no more expensive tests and no more not know what to do about it!

  • According to the American Thyroid Association (ATA), more than 12% of the US population will develop a thyroid condition sometime in their lifetime. About 20
  • About 20 million Americans currently have thyroid disease and don’t even know it.

ATTENTION LADIES! We are 8 times more likely to develop a thyroid problem. (Aren’t we likely?!)

  • If any thyroid problem goes undetected or unresolved it can cause several other severe conditions: cardiovascular disease, infertility, and osteoporosis. To just name a few.
  • Also, thyroid issues can lead to two thyroid autoimmune diseases; Hashimoto’s & Graves)

Knowledge Nugget: Autoimmune Diseases develop when our own body’s antibodies/”fighters” attack our own body part. In the example of the thyroid; our body is attacking its own thyroid gland.


So now that we know a few stats on the thyroid, let’s dig deep on how you may tell if the thyroid is to blame for your health ailments.

These symptoms may be the most common symptoms of a thyroid problem. And there are plenty more. For a list of more thyroid symptoms visit my Pinterest board.


I know this is all to take in all in one post. I also know that if your anything like me, you want to know what actions to take next!

This month’s free gift I have created is the exact action step needed. Click here  and/or the imagine to download the FREE guide…..

This guide gives a summary of the thyroid but also an entire list of thyroid test you should ask your doctor! This guide is full of amazing value to better your health & life!


Next blog post will be about how to take actions into your own hands. How to naturally aid our thyroid with nutrition (top 5 foods to help the thyroid), wellness tips (how movement can impact our thyroid), and alternative methods (Surprise recipe at the end). Something to look forward to!

“It is in the moments of decision that destiny is shaped.” -Tony Robbins

Hey Hey!

Welcome to AnnaHilty.com blog! It is a true pleasure and extremely grateful to have you here. This post  an opportunity to know me; Anna Hilty; Holistic Health Coach & Reiki Practitioner a little deeper.

For those who are signed up for my “Bi-weekly Coaching” via email, you were given the cliff note version of a very small but important time in my life. The moment when my life changed.

What many of you may not know is I have struggled and continue to struggle with fatigue & weight. However, my mindset to both now is entirely different now.

I’m going to take you back to the time all the fatigue manifested from….childhood. Up until I was about  2 years old I was pretty normal (as far as I know lol), very easy going, quite, little curly red hair girl. (Was told I was even forgotten about because I was so easy going) Then at two years old, it all hit me in one year; extremely tonsillitis (sounds like Darth Vader)  & with that comes the fear of stop breathing. The every parents’ nightmare….chicken poxes. A short explanation of how bad that was, is I had scars from the chicken pox till I was 15 years old. And then, on top of a rough year my dear, loving grandmother passed way from skin cancer.

So why am I telling you this story? My pass is a prime example of how our bodies hold onto trauma. According to evidence from a U.S. National Study (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3211065/), the direct connection between childhood trauma and adult sleep issues.  And as we all know and feel that when we feel fatigued we just want to go to sleep.

Childhood trauma is just one cause of fatigue. Other examples are environmental toxins, nutrition, hormonal imbalance, our gut health, your current relationships, and of course overall lifestyle. I was fortunate enough to be given the gift of awareness at an early age. Awareness of my surroundings and my body and this is the first stage of making any type of change in your life. The reasons for my fatigue came in different levels. First came lifestyle, then nutrition, hormonal imbalance, environmental toxins, emotional & physical trauma, and finally gut health.

It’s GAME TIME; The guessing game! Let me know if I guess how you feel when your feeling fatigued:

  • As soon as you wake up, you plan in your brain when you will have time to take a nap
  • Brain fog is so intense that you can barely function
  • Up until about an hour, before you go to bed, you feel like a walking zombie

How did I do? I know exactly how you feel…truly!

There is a way through the fatigue! The first step is to make an important decision.

GAME TIME #2: Would you rather!

  • Would you rather not take action to resolve your fatigue and continue to live your life like half a person OR……
  • Would you rather make the decision to address all factors of your fatigue and have a thriving, joyful life?

There are a ton of resources that resolve fatigue on the surface/short-term fix, but when you make the decision to take responsibility for your health & life that’s when the long-term results appear. SO ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ACTION?!


You’re lucky because as your health coach who truly is your support through your health journey, I have created 2 amazing ways to fight fatigue. They may surprise you!

Are You A Princess or A Queen?

Let me start today’s blog post with my gratitude to you. You are exactly the reason I am embarking on my new journey as Holistic Health Coach and an entrepreneur. My intention with this post and with all my posts is to share with you a new belief system. Everything we do and think comes from our belief system.  One of my favorite quotes is…..

quote-your-beliefs-become-your-thoughts-your-thoughts-become-your-words-your-words-become-mahatma-gandhi-35-74-46

If you are currently at a stage in your life where you are questioning everything or just one thing (parents, religion, doctors, or past experiences) you are in the right place towards changing your beliefs towards better serving you! Congratulations!

________________________________________________________________________________________

To get to these new set of beliefs , I wanted to share with you a “Ah-ha” (term Oprah has popularized) moment I had at the beginning of this week.

For those who do not know, I currently work two jobs on top of becoming an entrepreneur. One of those jobs; I am so grateful for, allows me to further one of my strengths….curiosity/learning which sometimes looks like me listening to several different podcasts.  Because I tend to have a short attention span, I don’t usually listen to any podcasts that are any longer than 30 minutes.  However, this day was different.

There was me scrolling through all the unplayed podcast episodes trying to decide on what topic I wanted to learn. I came across the Psychology of Eating channel and immediately was drawn to an episode named “Sugar, emotional eating, and body imagine”. Since recently suffering from binge eating disorder, the “emotional eating” might have well had jumped out of the screen at me.

A small overview of the episode and how most of them go is; Mark David (founder of the Institute of Psychology of Eating) interviews/conducts a session with a client with open-ended questions. Examples of a question is “If you had a magic wand what would you get out of this session?” or “What was your mother’s relationship with food and her body?” (By the way, these are the type of questions I ask my clients when I work one-on-one)

This woman’s experiences and thoughts were very similar to mine. The youngest of a large family, never feeling enough compared to her siblings, at a young age always being “overly” sensitive, and so much more. After about 20 to 30 minutes of open-ended questions, Mark then takes all that information and states what he’s perspective/opinion on her situation. 9 out of 10 times he is 100% accurate.

He had said something that really connected with me. We all have multiple personas within us; inner child (or inner princess) and the inner adult (or inner queen). The child/Princess is the scared, fearful, self-loathing; that inner shit talker. (“I shouldn’t have eaten that piece of cake. I was and am so bad. I’ll never lose weight.”) However, we can choose to listen to our adult/Queen within us. She is rational, nourishing, compassionate; self-loving voice. (“Ok, the reality is yes, you ate the piece of cake. You will not die because you ate it. As long as you fully enjoyed and savored it; everything will be ok.”) Princesses usually have tantrums when they don’t get their way or have more self-doubt. But a Queen holds her head high with confidence and welcomes & gives compassion.

 Which voice in your mind do you choose to listen to? Do you choose the spoiled Princess or the poised Queen?!

Hopefully, this post pasted on as much value as it gave me while writing it. It is a true order writing to you.

“I thanked her having the strength to be vulnerable with me.”

Wow, today I had a one-on-one health coaching session in which I was not expecting. And as soon as i left I had such a “high” of inspiration & pride, I had to share it with you.

My client “Lisa” originally came to me to figure out what she can now eat since being diagnosed with Celiac disease. But trust me that is not the only thing that is medically aligning her; two types of autoimmune, no gallbladder, high cholesterol, and so much more. As with all my clients I like to come prepare to each and every session whether that be knowledge prepared or emotionally. Well, I was revived up to discuss “secondary” food not so much “primary” food. However, no matter how we want a situation to go or how we want someone to react, the universe (higher knowing/being. Whatever your belief is) has a different plan.

As soon as my first question came out of my mouth, I instantly knew we were not going to talk about food. As a health coach I had to let go of my own agenda and really tune in to what my present client needed. She needed to release alot of stress and trauma.  As she was releasing this she started to cry and looked away from me. I first told her that she is absolutely allowed to cry; giving her permission. Then I thanked her having the strength to be vulnerable with me. It is such an honor! “You share your story to those who have earned the

 “You share your story to those who have earned the right to hear my story”-Brene Brown We instinctively know who deserves to be with me while vulnerable.  However, because we are not taught to listen to our intuition; Brene Brown (“The Queen of Vulnerability”) states six types of people  shameful situation worse, not better:

  1. The friend who actually feels shame for you, gasps and confirms how horrified you should be.
  2. The friend who responds with sympathy (“I feel so sorry for you.”) rather than empathy (“I get it, I feel with you and I’ve been there.”)
  3. The friend who needs you to be the pillar of worthiness and authenticity, who can’t help because she’s too disappointed in your imperfections.
  4. The friend who is so uncomfortable with the vulnerability that she scolds, “How did you let this happen?”
  5. The friend who is all about making it better and, out of her own discomfort, refuses to acknowledge that you can actually make terrible choices (“You’re exaggerating. It wasn’t that bad.”)
  6. The friend who confuses connection with the opportunity to one-up you. (“Well, that’s nothing. Listen what happened to me…”)

Which of the following types of people have you been?

I personally have know problem being vulnerable with people; no matter who. However, my current struggle is being vulnerable with myself.

With “Myself”? Say what again? How do I even attempt to do that?  Here are my three ways to be vulnerable with yourself:

  1. Be by yourself…date yourself
  2. Allow yourself to cry. Im not saying slow tears roll down your cheeks. I mean the ugly, mascara streaks, hyperventilating crying.
  3. Have and keep faith in self. You may not know “how” or “what” to do/say but it will always will.

Come Into Yourself Like a Lion or Like a Lamb

Hello there beautiful!

First and most importantly, let me express my gratitude I have for you. It truly means the world to me that you have taken the time out of your busy day (Full-time job, motherhood; which no doubt in my mind is a full-time job in itself,  cooking, cleaning, and somewhere fitting some self-care in that craziness) Well, I hope by reading these post give you empowerment and encouragement to invest in yourself today!

For those beauties who were wondering about the St. Valentine’s Day Rejection Challenge I had set for myself. It went well. Meaning, I concord my fear of rejection. To be honest, the challenge was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Don’t get me wrong, it was hard taking the first action and asking out a single guy every day till Valentine’s Day but  surprisingly it wasnt the asking that was the  hard part. As a single gal who doesnt put her self in locations with other males, not knowing where to go to meet/talk to guy was my first mini-challenge. Then, the unknowing if that guy was single or not. I learned this lesson the hard way.

Day three of the Rejection Challenge; I am pouring confidence. Big bright smile all day long. (I seriously looked like the Joker lol) At that moment I had a few guys from work that I had been crushing on; especially one. Tall, dark, and a weightlifting Yogi….the dream for any single gal. On day three, we talked for about 40 minutes about topics we had in common; food, weightlifting, food, yoga, and food. Finally, I took a deep breath and gave him my number. (You go girl!) So did we go out on Valentine’s Day do you ask? No, no we did not. He claimed he had to work, no other plans were made, and made it himself very clear he was NOT the “relationship type”. Come to find out a week later from his mom (Yes, his mother who he went to yoga with every week. I know your reaction. Head tilt and “Aww thats sweet.”) that he has a girlfriend. Note to self, ladies….DONT NOT ASSUME! Be direct and ask!

This didnt discourage me from asking out other guys. All in which had plans for Valentine’s Day. The big lesson to take from my challenge is if someone tells you they have plans; they did NOT reject YOU. Dont take it personal! The Rejection Challenge definately helped me build up courage and self-confidence. Taking ACTION builds more CONFIDENCE! (Not the other way around)

________________________________________________________________________________________

Now that you are all caught up with my dating life. (or lack of) Id love to start talking about the title of this post; “Coming into Yourself Like a Lion or Like a Lamb.”

“In like a lion, out like a lamb” a proverb that most commonly refers to the weather. Crazy rough winter weather at the beginning and calm spring-like weather at the end. For those nerds like myself; few origin theories; farmer almac, Greek, bible.

However, I would like to refer to this quote as for those trying to find inner balance. Which lets face it, we all are.

I currently have been educating myself about the big “F” word….FEAR! What is fear, how it can physically and mentally affect us in short and long term ways, why we actually need fear, how to use it as an aid to find balance, and physical technics to guide it.

Included in my morning routine (my Miracle Morning. Google it!) I read a book for 10 minutes. Well, my current book is The Fear Cure by Lissa Rankin. “Fear is the finger pointing you to where you need to pay more attention.”

Being aware or mindful of where you are is also very important. In any “12 step program” first admitting you have issue is the first step of healing. So how are you starting your day, or when searching for balance, are you search from fear or love towards yourself? You will never find love coming from or starting from fear/haterd.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Are you ready to find love for yourself?! If you are ready to embark in an amazing adventure, let me support you! It would be an honor to be part of your healing journey!
