In this episode, I get to have an incredibly insightful and authentic conversation (my favorite kind) with Mia Kang. Mia is a Hong Kong–born international model and author of the amazing book, KNOCKOUT. She discusses her story of struggling with her own eating disorder and addiction while working in the modeling industry, and how she unexpectedly found her solution in Indonesia at a Muay Thai gym, starting her on the path of true healing. We get to all the goods: how Mia is developing a new loving relationship with herself and her body (and how you can too!), why we should pay attention to our own internal wisdom, and how coming out of the shadows and into recovery is very, very possible.
Mia has graced the pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Sports Illustrated, among many others, and has worked with many international brands. She is currently the host of Bravo’s Spy Games. She lives in New York City, when she is not in Thailand practicing Muay Thai. Beneath her success is the story of a woman who once lived and died by her weight. In her first book, KNOCKOUT she opens up about her struggles with bullying, anorexia, bulimia, body dysmorphia, drug addiction, anxiety, and even suicidal thoughts, and how, in a true life-saving moment, she eschewed normative body standards and, with the help of martial arts, learned to redefine her sense of self-worth.
