Fun Fact About Binge Eating 🤯

May 27, 2024

Did you know that Binge Eating didn’t officially become a diagnosis until 2013? 🤯

Yep! It wasn’t until a mere 11 years ago that Binge Eating was included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). 

When I first learned this fact, it validated a LOT of what I had personally experienced like…

  • Why 932 hours in therapy never touched my binge eating / emotional eating 
  • Why I felt like there was a massive gap when it came to true support for my issues with food
  • How the medical model failed me and why I didn’t let that hold me back 


I started Escape From Emotional Eating back in 2011.  

I started it because once I said “enough is enough” and “come hell or high water I’m going to find and create the peace with food I know I deserve”, people started coming out of the woodwork. 

They would pull me aside after they took one of my fitness classes saying, “you need to work with me.” 

And, “what are you doing? You look so happy and healthy?!” 

I started to see that I wasn’t the only one failed by the medical model. 

Or sitting through hours of therapy only to return home and have my compulsions with food attack me as soon as I walked through my own front door. 

Looking back I’m so so so glad that I didn’t wait to have a diagnosis to seek the change I wanted. I would have been trapped in the soul-sucking emotional eating cycle for many more years.  

While I’m happy that Binge Eating finally has a place in the DSM, the world that we live in still has a long, long, long way to go. Especially when it comes to women and food.

For example, I don’t believe that Binge Eating should be treated solely from the mental health side… but that’s a story for a different day. 

Regardless of what’s included or excluded from the DSM, I remain steadfast in my commitment to helping women who strive for excellence heal their issues with food.  

If you need a diagnosis to validate your chaotic relationship with food, please go get what you need. 

But I hope you know you already have the power today to say “enough is enough” and “come hell or high water I’m going to find and create the peace with food I know I deserve”

It’s time to stop gaslighting yourself. 

You deserve peace and freedom in ALL aspects of your life. Especially with food!

Mothers, Daughters, and Food: A Masterclass 

May 13, 2024

Did you know that your relationship with food is intricately connected to your relationship with your mother? 

Yes! Regardless of what your relationship with her is like today, the link between you, your mother, and food is undeniable

3+ years ago, I started bringing this into my work with my clients. We’ve healed old wounds, cut entangled cords, ended unhealthy patterns, and released toxic food/body beliefs. 

Because of that, I’ve watched my clients experience a higher level of freedom and peace that is out of this world. 

From my professional expertise and my personal experience, I wholeheartedly believe that the intricate link between mothers, daughters, and food is one of the biggest blind spots I’ve seen for women who have complicated relationships with food. 

It’s also why I’ve been invited to countless podcast interviews and have delivered multiple keynotes on this exact topic. 

And I wanted to share one of those with you today! YAY! 

This is such a valuable resource because it’s essentially a podcast interview that I taught like a Masterclass. 

So click here to receive this eye-opening training!

As always, I’d love to hear from you! Once you’ve listened, simply reply to this email letting me know: what really resonated with you? 

In service to your freedom (and the freedom of future generations), 

P.S. If your intuition has been nudging you to finally address the unhealthy ways you use food to copeclick here. Don’t wait for things to get worse before they get better. You deserve better than the way things are. XO 

P.P.S. If you’d like to have me as a guest on your podcast or speak to your group/organization, you can reply to this email too. 😊

Clearing Mental Junk Food + downloadable PDF!

Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Let’s have fun with this one today! 

Not long ago before leading one of my transformational retreats, I gave each of my clients this sticker. I told them to place it somewhere they would see it regularly and to repeat it to themselves whenever they see it. 

I did the same. I chose to place mine on my water cup so I was simultaneously hydrating the beliefs of my mind as I was hydrating the cells of my body.

Now, I want to pass this simple yet profound gift along to you! 

I am sticker | Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Click here to download this resource for yourself! 

Just as I shared with my clients, place this somewhere you’ll see it repeatedly. Here are a few fun ideas: 

  • On your bathroom mirror 
  • On the dashboard of your car 
  • Next to your phone charger 
  • Taped to the light switch of your bedroom
    OR
  • You can tape it to your water cup, like me. 

Move this into action because it’s the implementation that creates the change you seek. 

Then, notice what this shift feels like in your body. 

😄

In service to your freedom,

P.S. When you stop believing and cycling through toxic thoughts, everything gets healthier. This is an important phase of work with my clients that we call: “Clearing Out Mental Junk Food”. Click here for a free consultation to explore if working together would be a fantastic fit. 

Changing the hidden self-sabotaging pattern

April 29, 2024
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

“This is never going to change!”
“This is never going to change!”
“This is never going to change!”


Have you found yourself silently chanting this mantra when it comes to your relationship with food? 

I know I have. 

Honestly, it would pump through the loudspeakers of my mind. Then, strong spikes of anger and frustration would flood my body. Followed by downpours of guilt and shame. 

Anger: “Here we go again!” 

Frustration: “Why can’t I just eat normally?!” 

Guilt: “Ugh, my stomach hurts.” 

Shame: “What is wrong with me?” 

Then, “This is never going to change! This is never going to change!”

This internal war raged after every emotional eating episode.

Back then, I wished I had someone to tutor me on how to stop this internal war with myself.  It was exhausting, and I was becoming despondent! 

I wanted to change this hidden self-sabotaging pattern so I could redirect my energy and reclaim my power. 

Today, I’m gonna show you the way, so keep reading! 

1 – Over the years of personally healing my relationship with food, I learned that no amount of beating yourself will ever result in changing your behavior. 

It’s misdirected energy. 

Now, I see this all the time in my professional work. Especially with smart, savvy, successful women like yourself. 

You strive for excellence and have very high expectations – the highest when it comes to yourself. 

But you can be so mean and downright brutal when you are challenged, make a mistake, or haven’t reached a goal (yet). 

How many times have you said, “I’d never say to someone else the things I say to myself.” 

Exactly. 

2 – It’s time for your inner b*tch to get a promotion. 

Because when you become mired in anger, frustration, and self-punishment, you aren’t able to see or receive the help that is often right in front of you. 

The dense fog of self-judgment and self-doubt renders you powerless and blind. 

3 – So the next time you find yourself thinking, “This is never going to change!” – replace it with: “This hasn’t fully changed yet.”

Because the truth is your entire world is constantly changing. 

It’s time to let go of the all-or-nothing mindset and start to embrace a commitment to making small, incremental changes.  

When I’m working with my clients, I often tell them that progress is progress, even if it’s 1%. 

4 – Be open to receive. 

The hardest part for any woman who strives for excellence is being open to receive. 

Because it requires you to know and own your value and worthiness. 

You’re so used to resisting what you truly need. This may have been supportive at some point decades ago. But now, it’s wreaking havoc on yourself and your health. 

So be open to receiving. Let go of trying to do it all by yourself all the time. 

You can practice this today by saying: “I am open to receiving all help that is meant to come!”

Then my dear, keep your heart open. Even when your mind continues to do mental gymnastics. 

From here, there is much more to the entire freedom from the emotional eating process. 

But focus on the 1% today. PRACTICE what I’ve shared here. Let that be enough for now. 

Then let me know how it goes.

“therapy hasn’t tackled my issues with food”

April 22, 2024
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

I spent 936 hours in therapy before I had a heart-breaking realization that changed everything for me.

Therapy wasn’t tackling my issues with food.

I hear this same epiphany from a lot of women in my Discovery Sessions, so today I’m going to share just a few insights from both my personal experience and professional expertise. 

Specifically, why so many of us smart, successful, high-achieving women are failed by the therapy model when it comes to our issues with food.  And what to do instead. 

Therapy sees and treats issues with food solely as a mental health issue. This is a very narrow approach when there is so much more to the nuanced relationship-with-food equation

I wish I had known this back in the day because it would have saved me years of struggle and strife. But it’s ultimately what motivated me to provide a different, deeper approach and create the Escape From Emotional Eating Programs. 

In my work with my clients, we do things differently!

We address the INNER WORK: your emotional body, your thoughts, beliefs, mindset, and your intuition. 

And the OUTER WORK: your specific habits, patterns, behaviors, and actions with food. 

So no aspect of yourself is left behind. 

From my experience in therapy, there was a lot of talking – YEARS of talking – but not a whole lot of behavior change. 

Haven’t you had a number of therapy sessions where you just talked in circles for an hour? 

Or perhaps you were handed a xeroxed worksheet only to be left wondering, “But what do I DO with this information?” 

Yeah, me too. That’s because when it comes to your relationship with food, therapy lacks setting goals, support with strategic implementation, and strong accountability – all of which you will find in the coaching I do with my clients

It’s what’s truly needed to change your relationship with food and your body. 

Many more aspects differentiate my unique work from therapy. It’s like comparing apples and oranges

If therapy hasn’t tackled your issues with food, click here now so we can set up some time to discover if working together would be a fantastic fit. 

Because we will tackle your issues with food together. 

In service to your freedom,

“I don’t want to tell my husband”

April 15, 2024
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Hey, 

Not long ago, I was in a Discovery Session where this bomb was dropped: 

“I really want to do this work with you to heal my emotional eating, but I don’t want to tell my husband.”

This reminded me of a time in my food-healing journey… 

When I didn’t want anyone finding out that (1) my emotional eating was out of control and (2) I really wanted, needed, special support to stop. 

Silently drowning in my ocean of shame, I believed if my husband (Zach) found out, he’d see me as… 

Weak 
Broken 
Crazy
Ungrateful 
High-maintenance 

At my core, I believed that healing my relationship with food meant I would lose Zach’s love and respect. 

My emotional eating destroyed everything it touched – my body, my mind, my work, my finances – I didn’t want it to rupture my marriage too

Believing the cost and consequences of change were too high paralyzed me for years. 

So, I want to share with you a few things I’ve learned from my food-healing journey so you can learn from my experience, just like my clients do. 


1. Your relationship with food is deeply entwined with your relationship with other people.

Think about it! How many times have you fallen off track because you had a date night, dinner with friends, or a holiday meal? 

It’s easy to make changes when it’s just you. But it becomes a whole other kit and caboodle when someone outside of yourself, like spouses, family members, kids, friends, coworkers, etc., enter the mix. 

This is why, in my work with my clients, I support them with navigating their relationship dynamics so everyone in the relationship(s) can win!  

Relationships are part of the work here – it’s what makes my work different! 

Because as you evolve, your relationships need to evolve too! 

And you need the right tools and support to do exactly that! 


2. Emotional eating is a symptom of self-silencing. Healing it requires you to reclaim your voice.

The thing that changed everything for me in my relationship with food was allowing myself to receive the right support and accountability. 

Having a coach who could hold my hand, teach me, and guide me to have courageous conversations with my husband about what was really going on for me and what I really needed was a game-changer. 

I was finally able to face, “Oh no, what will he think of me?” and start creating the life I truly wanted. 


3. Your greatest fears are often the opposite of what will happen.

Remember when I said I was afraid that healing my emotional eating would rupture my marriage? 

Yeah, well, quite the opposite happened! 

I discovered that the healthier I got, the healthier our marriage got

The more I grow, the more our relationship grows. 

The more I love myself unconditionally, the more unconditional love I give and receive. 

———

So, if you want to heal your relationship with food but are afraid of what other people will think of you… 

Or maybe you’ve literally said, “I don’t want to have to tell my husband”… don’t let this paralyze you for years.

Instead, take the very best next step for your healing journey by clicking here right now

You and me. We’ve got important work to do.

A few of my favorite things (April 2024 Edition) 

April 8, 2024
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Hi! 

I can’t believe it’s been 7 months since I shared a few of my favorite things with you! Honestly, over the last year, I’ve been really committed to slowing my consumption down by focusing on investing my time, energy, and resources in things I TRULY love… things that I come back to time and time again, season after season. 

For example, I’d rather have a handful of beautiful, high-quality pieces of clothes than an entire closet full of fast fashion and the hottest trends. 

As I’ve leaned into this approach more than ever, I’ve found what really stands the test of time, and I want to share them with you! 

So we can basically call this list “A Few Things I’m STILL Really Loving” – teehee! 

♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

I have super sensitive skin. I’ve found that what works best for me is keeping my skincare routine (and life!) super simple with ingredients that I know work for me and my body. 

I’m talking only a cleanser and moisturizer most days kinda simple. But, every once in a while I’ll exfoliate.  Wild, I know! 😂

When I do, I reach for Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask.

I love its smell of peppermint (aromatherapy is a big part of their product line!) and that it gets the job done without being too harsh on my skin. 

I also love that Kora Organic’s Founder, Miranda Kerr, and I share the same background in Holistic Health Coaching. 

♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

Looking for a healthy on-the-go snack? 

I’ve shared this before, but I’ve STILL really been loving Elemental Superfoods’ Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Super Seed Bars.

Their ingredients are 🌟- which is rare when it comes to a bar! And I’ve found them satiating, yummy, and stabilizing for my energy, too. 

I’ve STILL been using them as a pre-ballet class snack. And they’re great when you have dinner plans in a few hours but are hungry NOW. 

They have lots of different flavors, so if chocolate peanut butter isn’t your jam, check out their other flavors! 

When I first fell in love with them, I reached out to the company, and they gave me a 15% discount for my friends and family (that’s you 😉😉) – use code ESCAPE for 15% off your first order. ENJOY! 😋

♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

I’ve been making my own nut milk, and I couldn’t be happier about it! 

Back in the day, I attempted to make my own but I hated having to strain it. The whole thing was messy and complicated to me that I went back to buying it at the store. 

UNTIL I got the Almond Cow

Now, the whole process is a simple push of a button! Clean-up is easy-peasy. And the milk is so good even my husband uses it! 

I learned a few hidden tricks to make our Almond Milk in this Almond Cow super duper creamy with the perfect amount of vanilla flavoring and sweetness. 

If you have an Almond Cow or are thinking of buying one, email me, and I’d be happy to share my tips and tricks with you (this email is getting long)! 

Save $25 when you use this Friends & Family link

Happy Milking! 😁

♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

OK! I hope you find something fun or inspiring in these resources that support your body, mind, and soul in being of full service to you, your calling, and your purpose. 

Remember, if you want to thrive in this world, using food to cope will only get in your way.

I’d love to hear what you’re currently loving, too… got a new recipe, book, or gizmo that brings joy to your life? I’d love to hear about it! Just hit “reply” and let me know!

Today’s Lesson: Staying Stuck vs. Breaking Out Of A Rut

March 25, 2024
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Today, I’m gonna share with you 2 KEY INGREDIENTS that make peace with food a reality. 

Without these 2 vital ingredients, you tend to stay stuck in the same patterns and repeat the same old behaviors. 

Here’s a real-life example…

How many times has this happened to you?

You listen to a podcast. 
You get some great new information. 
You feel inspired. 

You renew your commitment to following through. 
You take action for a few great days! 
You convince yourself, “This is it! This time is going to be different!” 

But then, a week or two goes by, and your motivation fizzles. 
Work gets busy. 
You get tired. 

You fall off track. 

A lot of people know WHAT to do but aren’t always doing it.

That’s because simply knowing the information isn’t enough. 

It’s not what motivates you to take action. 

Most of all, it’s not what has you staying with it when the road gets bumpy

We are all suffering from information overload! 

There are zillions of podcasts, books, articles, YouTube videos, and Instagram posts… there’s TONS of information, but 99% of people aren’t putting it into practice. 

The 2 KEY INGREDIENTS that bring your desire to be at peace with food a reality are (1) support and (2) accountability.

You’ve got information. You don’t need more information! 

What you need, is a live human being to lovingly hold your hand and guide your progress.

And that same human being to kick you in the booty when you start doubting yourself and trying to avoid something. 

And most of all, encourages you to just keep showing up when you feel challenged. 

Because the doubt, the distractions, the resistance, and the challenges will come. They are a part of your growth journey. 

Instead of putting an unhealthy amount of pressure on yourself to be perfect and never fall off track, it’s time to find the support and accountability that’s right for you!

That’s why I’d like to invite you to an Escape From Emotional Eating Discovery Session

This is a 60-minute private consultation where we’ll look at your challenges in your relationship with food and your body. With me as your guide, we’ll zero in on what’s keeping you stuck and what you need to get unstuck. 

We’ll also get clear if I’m the right flavor of support and accountability for you! 

Space is limited, so click here right now and submit your information. Your form will come directly to me, and only me! 

After I review it, I will personally give you a call to schedule your Discovery Session! 

My clients tell me that I have a beautiful way of communicating that is sweet and fun. But that I don’t take any crap. 

They tell me how I have an amazing gift of calling them out in the kindest, most accepting way. That they don’t feel shamed or judged.  

Support AND Accountability. 

2 ingredients proven to make all the difference between staying stuck and breaking out of a rut.
