Meet Dr. Kerri Fullerton, author and leader of the diet rebellion. In her early teens Dr. Kerri was terrified of being fat. She was obsessed with her body and food. Dr. Kerri was either dieting, or secretly eating everything she could. She was always at war with her body. Then came the bulimia and the perpetual dieting. Each new diet or exercise program offered new hope. Each failure resulted in a binge and more shame.
Then Dr. Kerri found hope in an unexpected way, a new book that introduced a non-diet solution. Finally, she was on the right path and for the next 10 years she read every self-help book. Dr. Kerri was getting better. Her purging stopped. Her binges decreased. She started to be kinder to her body.
Then she had her son. Dr. Kerri’s binging came back and then the bulimia. She was devastated. This was not going to take her down without a fight. As a naturopathic doctor, she couldn’t help but take a scientific approach. The next few years were trial and error. Each success built on the one before, and each failure provided new lessons.
Dr. Kerri took these successes and failures and developed a modeled process that she shared with her naturopathic patients. And like her, they started to get results. The Diet Rebellion was born!
