Feeling “off” in your body? 

November 28, 2022
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Feeling “off” in your body today?

Be gentle with yourself. 

That means: watch the way you are talking to yourself. 

Whenever you’re feeling “off” in your body… adding shame, blame, and guilt will only make you feel worse. 

I know it because I’ve been through it. 

Watch out for any compulsions to over-exercise or restrict food as a way to make up for past mistakes, numb the discomfort of feeling “off,” or try to “control” your body. Quick fixes never turn into long-term solutions. 

I know it because I’ve been through it. 

Instead of divorcing yourself when you feel “off,” it’s a time to reconnect with yourself and tune in. 

Now you might be thinking, “what? what do you mean to reconnect with myself and tune in?” 

Let me explain… 

Anything used addictively (like overeating, overdrinking, overworking…even overexercising) puts a buffer between yourself and your awareness of your body and feelings. 

It puts you out of touch with your needs and disconnects you from your intuition and inner guidance. 

In healing your addictive patterns, you get back in touch with yourself, your feelings, and your needs. 

In that process, you learn what your body is trying to communicate by feeling “off.” And you’ll know how to lovingly support yourself to feel better. 

Which is exactly what we do together here at Escape From Emotional Eating. 

In fact, it’s literally my core mission: to help women who strive for excellence get back in touch and stay in touch with themselves. 

Because you and your relationship with yourself are the foundation of everything. It’s the common denominator. 

And since you strive for excellence, let’s make sure your foundation is excellent too.

Read this before your Holiday meal!

November 23, 2022
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Hi! The American Holiday of Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and if you have a complicated relationship with food, ANY meal can be triggering, even more so for a Holiday Meal. 

With you in mind, I wanted to share a few recommendations on how to stay connected to yourself and create peace with food on this holiday.

1). Remember Abundance.

Crazy fear-based thoughts rooted in scarcity
 like, “I’ll never eat this again,” only fuel overeating and the self-destructive emotional eating cycle. 

You know that if you really wanted that pumpkin cheesecake, you could easily go to the store at any time and get one yourself. Or call up your Grandmom on a random day to make you one. (I bet she’d be delighted!) 

Bottom line: You will eat again. Food is everywhere. 

2). Bless your food and allow it to nourish you.

This will help you remember that eating is a sacred experience and should be treated as such.

3). Trust your body.

Yes, your body already knows what to do. It’s your mind that loves to interfere.

Today is a great day to start practicing trusting your body. Take 3 deep breaths at any time during your day, your meal, or after your meal to reconnect with your body and yourself. 


These are just a few basic recommendations I share with my clients too. I recommend you save this email so you can refer back to it tomorrow! 

If you know you need more support when it comes to truly untangling your relationship with food, click here and fill out this questionnaire right now

You’ll hear from me, or a member of my team, on Monday to get something on the calendar to do some discovery together. 

Do not put this off. 

If you have issues with food, this can be a very challenging and frustrating time of year. 

And it doesn’t have to be that way. Click here right now and take the first steps to transform your relationship with food. 

I’ll see you on the inside. 😘

In service to your freedom,

P.S. I am so grateful to be connected with you. 

In a world that is overwhelmingly saturated with diet culture and millions of modalities that miss the mark, I’m glad we’re connected here and committed to doing the sacred work of healing the roots of your relationship with food. 

P.P.S. If you need more support, receive it here. ❤️

how to avoid emotional eating this week (and this season!)

November 21, 2022
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Hey *|FNAME|*! I just wanted to check in as I’ve been thinking of you as we move into and through this time of intensity – the Holidays! 

If you use food to cope, this can be a low time for you… resigning to eating and drinking your way through the next 6 weeks. 

So I wanted to share a few recommendations with you on how to stay grounded and avoid emotional eating this week (and throughout this season). 

Recommendation #1: Manage your energy.

I recommend choosing an energy management tool for the week and engaging with it proactively 1x per day. I’ve been working with Digesting Emotions®, a tool that I teach in my Escape From Emotional Eating Programs, so I’m processing things, not letting them pile up on the inside

Another thing I am doing to support my emotional body by managing my energy is committing to taking a walk outside (no matter how windy and cold) to help me stay grounded. Nature always soothes my sensitive soul and helps me stay connected to myself no matter how frenetic the outside world gets

Recommendation #2: Step away from your screens.

Put down your phone. Turn off the T.V. Pause your online shopping. 

Consciously create time where you are not taking in or taking on things from the outside. This will help you switch out of a constant state of consumption and help you shift into restoration. 

Do this anytime to get back in touch and stay in touch with yourself. 

Recommendation #3: Just because other people are doing it doesn’t mean you have to also.

I’ve already started seeing posts about stress eating, overeating, and a “f*** it” mentality when it comes to food and the Holiday season. If you are trying to overcome patterns of emotional eating, seeing someone else do it can be a slippery temptation to give yourself permission to be self-destructive. Watch out for this. And remember, just because someone else is engaging in a self-destructive cycle doesn’t mean you need to join them. 

Final thoughts…

It’s common to want to try to escape intensity (no matter what season you’re in), but you are strong, and you are capable of weathering this storm – internally and externally.

Food will not make things better. Not in the short term. Certainly not in the long term.

Stay present in your body.

Surrender when you feel yourself trying to “grip” or control. 

Most of all, if you feel like you’ve “lost yourself,” do not wait until the New Year to come home to yourself or your body.

Processing Emotions With Someone You Love

November 14, 2022
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Did you know that your physical body is a direct reflection of the emotional burdens you’ve been carrying? 

In order to be our healthiest selves, we must be willing to look at, work with, and transform our emotional burdens so we can be free. 

The last week has been very difficult and emotional for me personally (more on that later when I’m ready to share), and I’ve been using Digesting Emotions® to help me through it. And I wanted to share more about this fabulous tool with you today.

I created this process to support myself and the women I work with in safely facing, processing, and then transforming emotional burdens so we can feed ourselves what we really need. 

Watch the video now.

Digesting Emotions® will help you clear your emotional charge so you can connect more deeply and easily to your true authentic self.

Watch the video now and let me know what you think.

In service to your freedom,

You will be ok

Overcoming emotional eating

October 31, 2022
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

I wrote you a poem. I’m calling it, “Caring For Your Inner Kid” 

Here we go…[nervously clears throat]

There is a little kid that lives inside all of us,
When times get tough, she’s the control freak who wants to drive the bus. 

Little girl, can’t you see your head is in such a swirl? 
If you were to drive this bus, surely we’d all hurl! 

So she kicks, she screams, she pitches a chaotic fit,
It’s not food that she wants, definitely not the kind that makes her sh*t!

It’s your time, your attention, and your love for which she yearns, 
That’s why, dear, your heart…it burns. 

It’s ok if you don’t know how to care for her today, 
The first step, sometimes, is going within to say, “hey!” 

Tell her, “I’ll take care of you, my princess, my precious little one. 
I will protect you, my dear, and of course, we’ll have some fun!”

“Here, my love, take my hand. 
Tell me your fears, sweet child, I wanna understand.” 


In service to your freedom,

P.S. Learning to be a “loving mother” to yourself is a key piece in overcoming emotional eating. It’s what heals that empty feeling you try to fill with food.

How anger affects emotional eating

October 24, 2022
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

“Anger is like water. No matter how hard you try to dam, divert, or deny it, it will find a way, usually…through your body, eating habits, and relationships.” 

This is a quote from a book I have been studying this year with a handful of close colleagues and my mentor called, Rage Becomes Her: The Power Of Women’s Anger by Soraya Chemaly. 

While I have come a long, long way in my relationship with my emotions (especially anger), I am still a student in the process.  

However, it wasn’t until I started healing my emotional eating with focused intention that I honestly realized the magnitude I would go to bottle up my anger…

How much I would recklessly try to extinguish it (and therefore, myself) with food… 

And how in doing so, it had corroded my relationship with my body and mind

Back then, when I thought food was the only way to cope with this overwhelming world, I had the awareness that the beginning steps of my healing journey would require me to get back in touch with my emotions… to FEEL my anger… ugh. 

But I was so, so scared. 

I was frozen stiff that if I really let her rip, I would torch the entire town… and no one would make it out alive, including myself. 

Or worse: I was petrified that someone would see or know I was angry, and then I would be shamed, ridiculed, and ostracized. 

Long story short, this is exactly why I created the powerful process and tools (that I now teach my clients) called Digesting Emotions® and The Anger Flush™. 

Having and using these tools felt like the safety net I needed, especially in the beginning. 

Instead of fearing, ignoring, or eating my anger, I had tools I could reach for (no matter where I was or what was going on) to purge, process, own, and ultimately transform my emotional energy into personal power. 

The more I used these tools, the more I experienced an increase in my self-esteem, self-worth, self-love, and body image. 

And I see the same thing happen to each of my clients. 

So, if you’ve never been taught healthy, doable ways to manage and move through difficult thoughts, feelings, and experiences… 

OR the tools you currently have aren’t cutting it, click here now so we can set up a time to connect and explore if the unique and life-changing work I do is a fit for you. 

Because one thing I know for sure is that we are living in hard times, and things aren’t going to get any easier any time soon. So my invitation and high recommendation is that you learn how to manage the hard in an even better, healthier way. 

Click here so we can explore that together.

Daughters and Food

October 17, 2022
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Does your daughter struggle in her relationship with food and her body? 

Does she eat when she is stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, or bored? 

Do you, as her mom, struggle to give her the right guidance, support, and accountability without being too controlling or over-responsible? 

Then click here right now so we can connect and explore if my Mothers, Daughters, & Food Program is a fit for you both. 

Over the past 11+ years, I have been inundated with requests from moms to support their teenage daughters. I’d hear things like… 

“My daughter needs support, but I don’t want to send her to something serious like a clinic.” 


“I’m frustrated because most therapists don’t have the specialization and expertise needed for healing issues with food.” 

And since I’ve always known deep in my heart that my unique approach and life-changing work is meant to touch the hearts of children (as well as adults), I have been consciously and intentionally adapting my life-changing food healing programs to support mothers AND daughters (because there is an undeniable connection between Mothers, Daughters, & Food). 

Since you are part of my inner circle and are a very important person to me, I wanted you to be the first to know that 2 spots in my Mothers, Daughters, & Food program just opened upClick here now to explore if one of these spots is a fit for you and your daughter. 

As of now, this will be the only email you’ll receive about this hidden gem of an opportunity, so click here right now and let’s discover if this is a fit for you. 

Chat soon! 

In service to your freedom,

P.S. What’s unique about my Mothers, Daughters, & Food Program is my two-pronged approach. Meaning, depending on what level of support is a match for you two, I’ll have consistent 1:1 sessions with your daughter. And then separate 1:1 sessions with you (since you are the gatekeeper when it comes to food and how it is handled within the home). Click here now so we can connect and you can learn more. 

P.P.S. Reminder: there are only 2 spots. So click here now! 

P.P.P.S. If someone you love in your own inner circle has been looking for this kind of support, please forward this email to them so we can connect. 

A few of my favorite things (October Edition) 

October 10, 2022
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Every once in a while, I come across something that brings me so much joy that I just have to share it with the people I love. Since you are a part of my inner circle 😉 I wanted to share a few things I have been using and loving in my personal life in hopes that it will elevate yours as well!   

Here is what I’ve been excited about this season: 

With the Holidays on the horizon, Zach’s birthday coming up, and our 5-year wedding anniversary around the corner, I have been so excited to break out my reusable gift wrap from last year to wrap all my gifts in. 

Last year, I scoured the internet looking for a reusable gift wrap option that was chic and seasonal (aka red and green for Christmas, blue and silver for Channukah, more universal colors for Birthdays, etc.), and would help me do my part to eliminate waste.

And I was soooo happy when I found Rapt and even MORE happy at how easy wrapping Christmas presents was last year that I just had to share this with everyone I know! 

I purchased the Neutral Family Set, which came in this adorable woven basket (organizing made easy!), and the Holiday Starter Set. Zach and I had more than enough (aka I ordered too much – haha!) to wrap all our Holiday presents for our family members and us. 

Last year I purchased my set in November, and they were already mostly sold out. However, looking at their website now, they have a lot more options than last year and are fully stocked as of now, so I would recommend purchasing now so you get what you want! 

I also love that this small company is woman-owned, the products are handmade from leftover scraps, and we share an affinity for pom poms.

With the weather turning colder here in Philadelphia, I have ditched the iced coffee and gone back to my tried and true cup of tea to warm my body. In the morning, I will brew a cup of Mighty Leaf’s Green Tea Tropical. I love how it’s not a “grassy” tasting green tea. I literally have been drinking this tea for over a decade. 

But what I’ve REALLY been obsessed with is a cup of Rishi’s Lavender Mint Tea in the evening. After dinner, Zach and I will usually curl up on the couch to watch Jeopardy (it’s not really as relaxing as it sounds since we are screaming the answers at the TV the whole time – I am pretty competitive). But after I’ll make myself a cup of this Lavender Mint Tea with a little bit of honey before bed. It always hits the spot!

While I teach a suite of tools specifically designed to support my clients in managing difficult emotions and energy, I personally have recently found myself using an oldie-but-a-goodie tool from Julia Cameron called Morning Pages

I remember first learning about Morning Pages 12+ years ago when I was in nutrition school and going through lots of turbulence and change in my life at that time. Just getting my thoughts down on the page allowed me to get in touch with my inner voice and heart’s true desires without a filter and without that awkward “what am I supposed to write” when it came to journaling.  

When I think back, it was the practice of Morning Pages that had me realize that my issues with food weren’t “normal” and that there was something deeper going on for me. 

And here I am again, many years later in another season of turbulence and change, reaching for this “old friend” of Morning Pages to help me through it. 

Click here to watch Julia Cameron’s instructions on the simple yet profound process if you’re interested in trying this yourself.

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!

In service to your freedom,

Break free from your struggles with food
