I created ilk to help moms get fit and feel good in their bodies again
BCAAs? What...what's a BCAA? And also, why are there 10 million protein brands? And what's the difference between them?? And for the love of all that's good and holy, wtf is a preworkout?
If these thoughts have ever crossed your mind, you're not alone.
Wading into the fitness world for the first time is a RIDICULOUSLY confusing experience.
I weighed 270 lbs (123kg) when I finally decided I'd had enough and started my weight loss journey.
Over the course of 1 year, I lost 70 lbs and am on my way to losing the remaining 60lbs.
I knew I had to eat less and move more. But what I wasn't prepared for was how much of a brain melting experience all the other stuff would be.
So trust me when I say – I get it.
Losing weight is HARD. Trying to understand the world of fitness at the same time makes the journey a million times harder.
I created ilk because I wanted to spill the tea on how women like me can navigate the confusing world of fitness and weight loss.
I combine my clinical background as a pharmacist with my deep passion for fitness to help women find the supplements, recipes and habits that will lead them to a body and life they'll love.
My team works hard to formulate products and tools that help you lose fat, get fit and feel amazing.
So let's get this started 👊

But ilk is such a weird name. Why’d you choose it?
In Old English, the word "ilk" meant "the same". People would use it to refer to a family or community of people.
And in Turkish (where my great-grandparents were from), ilk means, “to be at your prime”.
We brought these two concepts together to create a community of like-minded women who all have the same goal: to FEEL their absolute best so they can BE their absolute best.
