" I know over the years a lot of people have tried to tell you what to do, especially when it comes to food. You’ve had a lot of voices in your head to sort out… to try to decide who is giving you the best information. What I mostly hope to accomplish with this book is to teach you how to start to listen to the voice you can learn the most from… your own." ~Julia

Fight Emotional Eating
A lot of us don't just overeat because of emotions or stress, we eat too much because we are not paying attention to our food. We live in a busy, distracted world and we miss a lot of our experience because we are on autopilot. This is the "mindlessness" component. So I also encourage you to think about how you eat. Are you rushing through your meal to get to your next item on your 'to do' list or are you tasting and enjoying your food? Practicing mindful eating can help you be present and get so much more out of your nourishment.
Let me help you build a healthier relationship with food.
