Emily Formea is a Mindset Coach for Food Freedom, helping women find peace with food and their bodies. She overcame her own eating disorder of 10 years and is now sharing her knowledge with thousands of other women online where she is a coach, blogger, author, podcaster and content creator. She just turned 23-years old and has made it her life mission to help women around the globe end their war with food.
She is the owner of Sincerely, XO Emily, and a mindset coach for food freedom and Eating disorder recovery.
How Did This All Get Started?
I developed an eating disorder at the age of 12 years old. I found myself in the hospital on my thirteenth birthday and then down a path of struggling with food for a decade after. I suffered from anorexia, binge eating, and bulimia throughout my life and was never able to recover from traditional therapy or medicinal routes. I finally graduated college and made it my mission to not only heal my own relationship to food, but to impact millions of women around the world and help them do the same! From a girl who hated herself more than anything in the world and truly never thought she could love food or her body ever again to now being a business owner, blogger, and author all around how to find peace with food has been the most insane roller coaster of my life, but I wouldn’t change it for the world!
What Is One Of Your Proudest Moments?
I would have to say publishing my book in March 2020. I wrote a book all about my eating disorder, but also how I truly recovered from it. I think it’s my proudest moment because I the actual book in under 2 months because I knew how much I wanted to share, but also how desperately women needed a book like mine to help them finally recover and life a life fully free! My book is ‘Gaining a Life: The Untold Story of my Eating Disorder & Recovery” by Emily Formea on Amazon.
I am in the process of writing a second book and developing a second course designed to help people who know someone struggling with food. My book and course is called: Dear Normal Eater (where I want to clear up the misconceptions that come with someone who struggles with food AND how people who know someone with this disorder can best support and understand them).
What is your morning routine?
I wake up at 4:44 AM every morning and I go for a 2-3 mile run during the week. Journal, meditate and then read for about 30 minutes in the morning before I shower and get ready for my day. Then start work around 7:30 AM with my coffee and mindset in check, but not only does my morning routine help me, but also taking weekends off! Being an entrepreneur isn’t so easy, you work ALL THE TIME! But you need breaks and time to relax, and so as productive as I love being during the week, I do that so the weekends are for fun and adventuring!
What excites you the most about your business?
Seeing it grow and grow and grow! I only started coaching in January of 2020 and since then I have helped over 20 women with their relationship to food with no degree and no real business plan at first! Just simply me, my laptop, and the dream of changing millions of lives from my own experience and passion to do so! I think my mission and authenticity is what’s gotten me this far and I am forever grateful for those two attributes of mine, but also I cannot wait to see it continue to grow and empower women all over the world to take back their lives from their struggle to food.
What is one piece of advice you would give your younger self?
Living by example and being authentic. I think whatever you preach, you must do first. I had to go through my own recovery to now be able to help others do the same. I also had to be vulnerable and honest with my followers online, but with myself, as well, because lying and faking it until you make it, I think is an art that’s dying out. People want you to be truthful and they don’t want you to always be perfect or pristine. I showed my true struggle in my book, course, Instagram, coaching, and I did that to make women not feel alone. A leader doesn’t need people to think they are perfect. To me, a leader is imperfect and leads regardless of it.
There’s no point in hating yourself. There isn’t. There’s no point in constantly beating yourself or putting yourself down. There’s no point in being your own worst critic or bully. There’s no point in not falling in love with yourself. And on top of that, being in love with yourself is not conceited or selfish, in fact, it’s the most selfless thing you can do. Because the moment I fell in love with who I was, I was able to help others do the same, and support them along the way.
What has taken your interest recently?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy being used to treat eating disorders. This is a new scientific uprise to help treat people who struggle with food at the source of why they struggle in the first place! I think that’s what really sparked me to start my coaching was that I had been to counseling and treatment and every time they just told me to ‘eat more,’ but my problem with food was so much deeper than that and that’s the healing mindset work. I now teach my clients what truly helped me recover.
What does the word DISRUPT mean to you?
Disrupt means to me a new path. It means to interrupt the normal, mainstream and that’s what I love so much about this opportunity! Disrupt is all about making an impact, finding a new way, having a new voice or new perspective and all this newness brings growth. I cannot thank Disrupt enough for this opportunity and for what they do! They disrupt the norm and we need that!
