Is Emotional Eating Weighing You Down?

Listen to “Is Emotional Eating Weighing You Down?” on Spreaker.

In this episode, we explore emotional eating — a timely topic with new pandemic restrictions upon us and holidays around the corner. Our guest Tricia Nelson is the author of the #1 bestselling book, ‘Heal Your Hunger, 7 Simple Steps to End Emotional Eating Now.’ Tricia’s own struggles began in early childhood, where she attempted to cope with life’s stresses and emotional pain by overeating and using other destructive behaviors.

After years of exhausting 12-step programs, therapy, and self-help books, to no avail, Tricia finally hit a spiritual and emotional bottom. She began working with a spiritual healer who helped her create a lifestyle of positive self-care, self-love, and improved self-esteem. Tricia was able to stop drinking and overeating and has maintained a fifty-pound weight loss for over 30 years now.

She shares with us:
• Three mistakes even smart people make about food and emotions.
• What to do when we feel like eating our way out of bad feelings.
• What the difference between an emotional eater and a food addict is.
• Why 98% of diets fail and so much more…

More about our guest: Tricia Nelson is an internationally acclaimed author, transformational speaker, and Emotional Eating Expert. She lost fifty pounds by identifying and healing the underlying causes of her emotional eating. She has spent over thirty years researching the hidden causes of the addictive personality. Tricia is the host of the popular podcast, The Heal Your Hunger Show, and is a highly regarded speaker. Tricia has been featured on NBC, CBS, KTLA, FOX, and Discovery Health.
