About Alison Marras

Based out of New York City, Alison is a nutritional therapist, coach and founder of the blog Food by Mars. She is a fellow side-hustle-to-full-time-gig success story and is passionate about building a tribe that fuels each other. After a frustrating health journey and eventual Hashimoto’s autoimmune disease diagnosis, Alison took to her blog to find joy for herself while also educating others.

Today Alison is outlining a guide for those of you that are frustrated that you don’t feel great in your body, and need a starting point. She is sharing her favorite tools that she herself has used when in a state of perplexment with your body, and what lead her to the AIP diet. By identifying your stressors, trusting your body and paying attention to your hunger cues, it’s possible to unlearn your diet habits and have a healthy relationship with your body.

Alison believes in figuring out what you can enjoy more of, instead of focusing on your restrictions. She is urging you to let go of the math and the calories and whatever prevents you from enjoying something, and instead get more in tune with what your body is trying to tell you

“Finally I went back to school for nutrition and really realized, this is what I want my career and my life to be about. Helping others and helping people not go through some of the stuff I’ve had to go through with my health, and it really became more of a mission.” (10:07)

“That’s kind of how I approach the blog, I don’t want anyone to go through this negativity of feeling like they can’t have anything, so I really wanted to build awesome recipes so people didn’t feel very deprived.” (22:10)

“I didn’t want to now demonize everything or demonize all these foods and be fearful every time I went out. I wanted to enjoy things again, so I really tried to loosen up” (29:19)

“This is a partnership. This is us putting our two heads together to figure out how they can find balance and how they can heal themselves and do all this stuff. Because no matter what, you are the expert on you. But it sometimes takes an outside opinion, just like anything else.” (49:02)
