“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

“I don’t want to tell my husband”

April 15, 2024
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating


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… 


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


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.

Back when I was emotionally eating, I thought pain was for numbing, hiding, deflecting, and ignoring. 

I thought that when life got hard, it was because I had gone wrong somewhere. 

I thought I was weak and that I was supposed to “just suck it up.” 

But the more I sucked it up, the more food and wine I had to suck down… extinguishing myself a million times a day. 

I thought this was the only way to survive in this overwhelming world. 

Turns out, I was wrong. 

As I did the inner work to heal my relationship with food, I found the truth:

I was missing my own evolution because I was too afraid to surrender to the process.

Consuming – whether you choose to overdo it with food, wine, exercise, or emails – keeps you distracted, busy, and numb. 

Busyness keeps you from transforming.

Numbness halts change

This is why you feel stuck. 

What makes my work different from all the other support out there is that we address this right from the get-go. 

When you and I have a Discovery Session together to explore if working together is a fantastic fit, we examine your fears, your doubts, and your concerns. 

You will hear me call them niggly-wigglies. 

In your Discovery Session, with our powers combined, I guide you through transforming them. 

As a result, you are no longer held back by your fear.

Instead, you have the courage to change if you choose. 

I only have 3 SPOTS in my calendar THIS MONTH for these powerful Discovery Sessions, so click here and fill out this form to make one of these sessions yours.

In service to your freedom,

P.S. If you’re on the fence, having a Discovery Session together is a great way to get clear if working together is a fantastic fit. I only have 3 SPOTS THIS MONTHso answer these questions as best you can right away – first come, first serve! XO 

Celebrating 13 years 🎉

February 26, 2024
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

I have been helping women who strive for excellence embody their full potential by healing the roots of their emotional eating since 2011.

As I am about to enter my 13th year in business, my commitment to this mission is stronger than ever. 

Since you are a part of my inner circle, know that everything I send, share, and teach is rooted in my core mission: helping you embody your full potential by healing the roots of your emotional eating.

Because I believe the most important relationship you’ll ever have in your life is the one you have with yourself. 

I believe you are the common denominator in ALL aspects of your life. I believe this is a gift, not a curse. 

I believe that your relationship with food and your body is simply a mirror, a symptom, of that inner relationship…the relationship with yourself. 

I believe that it’s imperative to learn how to stay connected to yourself, especially when you are seeing and experiencing things that make you uncomfortable. 

I believe that the world is getting harder, faster, and more chaotic and that we all must learn how to get better at managing it.  

I believe that everything is changeable – no matter how long you have been engaging in unhealthy patterns, like emotional eating. 

I believe you are worthy of so much goodness. 

This is my whole body prayer. 

The WHY behind all that I do. 

And I’m so grateful for our connection and all that you will receive from it in the year ahead. 

In full service and unwavering commitment to your freedom,

P.S. If your intuition has been whispering, “Now is the time” to explore working together, click here right now. That way, we can get something on our calendar to connect and explore possibilities together. ❤️
