Emily Coffman: How do I exercise, eat right, and feel confident about my body while in college?

Welcome to episode #88 of Fraternity Foodie! I’m your host, Mike Ayalon, CEO of Greek University. Today we are talking health and fitness with Emily Coffman, host of Girls Gone Healthy Podcast. Emily came up with the idea for the podcast when she realized how many women like her were struggling when it came to working out, eating right, and feeling confident in their body. Our bodies are constantly changing and fluctuating and no one has taught us how to adapt to these changes. Instead they tell us to burn more calories and try the new latest diet.

Emily is a member of Alpha Omicron Pi, a Division 1 athlete at the University of Oklahoma and was living a very unhealthy lifestyle in college. She thought she was healthy because she was constantly active and could eat whatever she wanted without gaining weight. But truth is she didn’t know how to train without over working herself or how to fuel her body properly.

We find out why she chose University of Oklahoma coming from Boston, what she learned being on the Women’s Rowing Team, why she went Greek as an athlete, how to train without overworking yourself, how you can fuel your body properly, how to manage sugar in our diets, how to trust your body and ditch your scale, how to stay motivated in working out, how to replace negative thoughts with self-love, and Emily’s favorite restaurant in Boston.
