Don’t miss it! November 15th – 18th, I’ll temporarily be accepting clients into my very first Holiday Eating program – F*ck Fruitcake

This program has been a long time coming, but I’m excited to show you how to end yo-yo dieting so you can celebrate the New Year in clothes that fit better, not worse. Learn more now ==> HERE

Whether it’s eating a whole bag of chips in front of the TV, or the entire tub of ice cream when you’re feeling sad, everyone overeats from time to time.

And while occasionally eating more than your body needs is totally normal, it can still feel physically uncomfortable and trigger feelings of guilt and regret.

In today’s episode of the Fat Murder Podcast, co-coach, Steph Miramontes, and I discuss 6 specific reasons why people overeat and what you can do about it.

To understand your behavior so you can break the cycle, you need to figure out your own emotional triggers.

Don’t miss out on today’s episode so you can bring the habit of using food as an emotional crutch to an end. When you can do this, you’ll not only lose the diet struggle, but you’ll be able to drop the weight, too.
