“A lot of people confuse my images (and every other ‘fit’ chick) with being ‘skinny,’ ” Guidolin writes, “this is a term that I try really hard to distance from my self as I am strong, I am lean and I am FIT. I am not ‘skinny.’ ”
Guidolin says that people incorrectly assume that she doesn’t eat.
“Comments range from telling me to eat a burger (which I make no secret that grill’d is our go to takeaway!) right through to diagnosing me with an illness,” she says. “In my case, I am the strongest I have ever been, I FEEL so energetic, I achieve so much in my days, I have amazing sleep at night times, my hair is thick, my skin is clear and I am fit. None of these statements is how you would describe a person with an ED [Eating Disorder].”

Guidolin’s goal is to teach people that you don’t need to starve yourself to get fit.
“I want to educate people — the difference is HUGE and by changing this stigma I KNOW that I can help a lot of people who think that losing fat IS by starving themselves as all these uneducated comments suggest — which is so far from the truth!” she says.
“Love your bodies, fuel your body and workout because it makes you FEEL great, fit and strong- not because you hate the way you look.”
