I’m Tomesha Campbell, FNC, Pn1, AIPCC.


I’m a health coach and author of The A Fitness Mindset Method: Ditch Dieting for Good and Achieve Your Fitness Goals Faster (2023). Through the A Fitness Mindset Method Coaching Program, I support you in ditching dieting for good.

Since 2016, I’ve been a blogger and live streamer on body image, meal planning, and strength training. I’ve also written for publications including Autoimmune Wellness, Ankylosing Spondylitis, and Axial Spondyloarthritis.

Additionally, I’ve been a guest expert on numerous podcasts, including Let Me Touch That, Enneagram MBA, The Lunar Body, Marketing Online with Ease, The Wealthy Coach, and Phoenix Helix.


Before I got where I am today, I had to free myself from dieting.


I began my career serving in the United States Marine Corps. Like many Marines, I found myself continually striving for perfection. From engulfing myself in Marine Corps history to increasing my stamina to withstand grueling physical requirements, I did what I thought was required to be the best.


In many ways, my dedication to the Corps served me well. I often found myself in leadership positions (whether I wanted to be or not) and quickly advanced in my career. Even though it appeared like I was living the dream, in truth, I was hiding a deep, dark secret.


During the six years I served in the Corps, my fixation on being “fit” led me to develop a negative body image and an unhealthy relationship with food.

No matter how much weight I lost, I always felt that I could get smaller.

This isn’t surprising, as we have been culturally conditioned by diet culture to believe that thinness equals health, beauty, and success. Having grown up being told that thinness was not only the standard but the requirement to be accepted in society, it’s unsurprising it has impacted our confidence in our skin and trust in food. Subsequently, it can lead us to develop disordered eating habits.

Due to the constant food and calorie restriction, I would find myself binge eating at night. Soon my binge eating episodes became more and more frequent until I eventually developed binge eating disorder (BED). BED is one of the most common eating disorders in the United States, but I certainly didn’t know that then. All I knew was that I felt out of control around food and was now spending excessive hours in the gym to maintain the Corp's strict body composition standards.

It wasn’t until I went on the most extreme diet to “make weight” for my final weigh-in for the Corps that I realized enough was enough. It was time for a change.

My journey from binge eating recovery to health coaching.


While I’d love to say that after being honorary discharged from the Corps, I immediately went into BED recovery, which was far from the case. Instead, it would take me close to a year of binge eating episodes before I would finally take action to change my eating habits.


Because I was too ashamed to admit I had BED, I enrolled in a nutrition certification course to learn about the fundamentals of nutrition and how to create healthier eating habits. From there, I started sharing my insights with friends and family before expanding to live-streaming what I was learning to the masses. Eventually, I put my nutrition certification into practice by becoming a health coach.


As I continued learning about nutrition and fitness, I noticed a clear bias regarding weight. Even though I had learned through my studies and experience that weight loss through dieting is not the way to become healthier, many in the communities I was a part of preached the opposite.


So, I started seeking other communities and soon discovered mentors who transformed my view of health and fitness.


From Steph Gaudreau to Chrissy King, I realized how diet culture and anti-fat bias had impacted my view of food and my body. Once I knew better, I felt compelled to start doing better as a health coach.

I’ve since expanded my learnings to include:

  • Autoimmune disease
  • Body image
  • Intuitive eating
  • Meal planning
  • Meal preparation
  • Mindful eating
  • Strength training

Because of this learning, I’m committed to supporting you to ditch dieting so that you can eat without guilt, exercise for enjoyment, and feel confident in your skin.
