In a society that encourages unrealistic body images for both women and men, it gets difficult to identify a healthy diet that suits your specific needs. Amber Wentworth is a health advocate who spent her entire life struggling with body image issues and following diets that made her a full-blown anorexic and bulimic at the age of 15. After discovering a diet that significantly changed her life, she decided to spend the rest of her life spreading awareness about a truly healthy lifestyle to prevent people from the years of pain that she went through.
Amber Wentworth, also known as Lone Star Keto Girl on social media, is currently a nutrition and life coach who aims to empower people and help them achieve their health goals via diet and lifestyle changes. She is a health podcaster of her podcast called Lone Star Keto and a podcast host for the MeatRX success story podcast. She is also a carnivore coach for MeatRX to help promote a carnivore diet that did wonders for her. She started her coaching business called Lone Star Coaching to help change the current system that normalises being on medications and having low energy to achieve your desired body and does not spread awareness of important health issues like obesity.
Amber shared that her struggles with weight and body image started at the age of 10. After being bullied and shamed by her classmates for developing quicker than others, she started hating her body and felt she was deformed. Due to the pressure from society, she started dieting at the age of 12 and has tried numerous diets ever since for over 40 years. After having kids, she started to gain weight again and hated her body for it. Her condition worsened to such an extent that she refused to be seen in public due to the fear of being judged. This took a toll on her mental health as well as she became severely depressed. All of this added up to create major health issues in her early 40’s which included dangerously high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, anemia, severe acid reflux, Reynaud’s syndrome, and many more.
Losing weight was never a problem, but she could never maintain that weight loss. After years of trying diets that failed to address hunger and hormone balance, she finally came across a diet that changed her life for the better. She noticed her mental, physical, and emotional health improve dramatically and finally understood that the cause of her health issues was the misinformation about a healthy lifestyle rather than her own body.
“My goal is to empower as many people as possible to take back their health and get out of the sick care system using food as medicine and lifestyle changes, so no one else has to suffer as long as I did,” says Amber Wentworth. She aims to build a new perception of what being healthy should look and feel like to help the people facing body image and health issues.
