my living hell

January 25, 2021
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

When I was a sophomore in college I had a roommate that made my life a living hell. Let’s call her Alexis. 

I was constantly attacked by her openly hateful comments. 

She even made simple things, like brushing my teeth, impossible by hiding my toothbrush…only after it took a swim in the toilet. 

I never knew someone could be so mean. 

It was hell. 

Now, I’m getting ready to lead my 13th retreat with my clients, called The ESCAPE, where we’ll be focusing on the Root Of Emotional Eating™: Self-loathing. 

While this one will be virtual, due to COVID, the work we do together and why we come together is still the same. 

To me, self-loathing feels like living with Alexis

From my decade of research in the psychology of emotional eating, I discovered that self-loathing is the most common root that triggers emotional eating. It keeps you locked into cycles of guilt and shame, with your compulsions with food growing like weeds.  

This makes simple things impossible, like getting dressed in the morning or deciding what to eat.  

If left unhealed, self-loathing will rob you of achieving your full potential.  

This is why on the ESCAPE, we’ll be focusing on transforming this by releasing past experiences that are currently embedded in your cells, transforming your limiting beliefs, and learning to love yourself. 

And I’m not talking about fluffy bullshit self-love. I’m talking about fundamental re-wiring through a get-it-in-your-cells-experience. Something that happens when we come together on our ESCAPE retreats, regardless if it’s in-person or virtual. 

Even if you won’t be joining us on the ESCAPE next weekend, we can still work together to release your inner AlexisClick here right now to apply so we can connect and explore which of the Escape From Emotional Eating Programs is a fit for you.

Once you apply my team will reach out to get you scheduled so we can connect right after the ESCAPE is over next week.

I look forward to helping you heal the roots of your emotional eating! 

In service to your freedom,

P.S. Afraid that if you aren’t so hard on yourself you’ll just become lazy? Yeah, well, when you are no longer living with that constant critic blathering inside your head or driving you to emotionally eat, you become powerful beyond measure. We can talk about this more when we connect — apply here now.

“hooked” on food? here’s why…

January 11, 2021
Jessica Procini  |  Escape From Emotional Eating

Your eating behaviors are driven by your mindset, emotions, beliefs, and past experiences. 

In order to truly heal your relationship with food (where you are using food as a nourishing asset rather than a self-destructive one) we have to untangle your mind, emotions, beliefs, and past experiences from food. 

This process of untangling is at the core of our work together in Escape From Emotional Eating. It’s what makes my work different than the other kinds of support out there. It’s what I love doing so much! 

Focusing on fitness and nutrition isn’t enough to truly heal your relationship with food because your mind, emotions, beliefs, and past experiences will still interfere. Leaving you still “hooked” on food

In our work together, we start this untangling process by teasing apart your emotional hunger from your physical hunger. 

So you can eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full. And so you can meet your emotional needs too like how to comfort, soothe, and relax without eating till you’re numb. 

When your mind, emotions, beliefs, and past experiences stop interfering with your relationship with food, your relationship with food stops interfering with the life you want to live. 

It’s how true freedom and peace occur, <<First Name>>.

Ready for your relationship with food to stop interfering with the life you want to live?  Then click here right now and let’s talk.

It’s time to set you free. 

In service to your freedom,

let’s break this cycle

January 4, 2021

Here’s the honest truth: Your peloton won’t heal your emotional eating. Neither will another go at Weight Watchers or a try at intermittent fasting. 

Because these methods are a complete mismatch for you. They don’t address the roots, the core issues, of your emotional eating.

This is everything my work here at Escape From Emotional Eating is all about – healing your Roots Of Emotional Eating™! 

When the roots of your emotional eating are not addressed, you fall into the emotional eating cycle of insanity. You know that constant cycle of falling off track > overeating > feeling guilty > overeating because you feel guilty… and then the cycle starts all over again, wasting your precious time, energy, and life! 

However, since I introduced my clients to my specific teachings about the 4 Roots Of Emotional Eating and the pathways to freedom, (which I founded from over 10 years of deep dedicated research), I’ve seen a massive acceleration in their healing.

Here’s what a few of my clients have celebrated recently:

     I haven’t emotionally eaten in a full year!
     – LP from Hiram, GA

     I haven’t emotionally eaten in 20 months!
     – SD from Lubbock, TX

     I can’t remember the last time I’ve emotionally eaten it’s been so long! 
     – LB from Malibu, CA

And it gets better! Each of these clients have experienced some pretty big challenges at work, in their relationships, and personal life recently. Because of our work together and the tools that I teach, they have been able to navigate these challenges with a level of peace and ease that doesn’t come from numbing out with food. 

All of this has me so excited that I want to share the deep healing work I do with as many people as possible!

Time to be honest again…Do you really want to heal your emotional eating?

YES! Then we have some important work to do! 

I have just a few spots open to connect for an Escape From Emotional Eating Discovery Session to explore which of my life-changing programs is a fit for you! 

In an Escape From Emotional Eating Discovery Session, I’ll listen intimately to what your challenges are with emotional eating, we’ll get clear on why you haven’t found freedom just yet, and we’ll explore your best next steps on your healing journey. This session is private, virtual, and complimentary – my gift to you! 

To receive your Escape From Emotional Eating Discovery Session: 

  1. Fill out this application now. (It should only take 5 minutes)
  2. Submit your application as soon as possible because I only have a few spots for these sessionsand I want to make sure you’re finding peace with food as soon as possible.
  3. I’ll read every application and you’ll be hearing from myself or a member of my team to schedule our connection. 


You’ve suffered enough already. 

Let’s end your fight with food together. 

In service to your freedom,

P.S. I’ve found that the women I work with tend to procrastinate. You put things off that are actually good for you and then you don’t do them at all. I only have a few spots open for Discovery Sessions, so if you’re feeling called to heal your emotional eating, APPLY NOW.


December 21, 2020

Are you exhausted? Yeah, me too. This year has been a doozy. 

As I get ready to take some time off from work for my end of year rest, reflection, and rejuvenation time, I’m reminded of how much my relationship with rest has changed over the years. In the same way my relationship with food and my body has.

I used to resist rest. I feared the quiet. As an emotional eater, “being still” felt impossible. 

As I looked deeper at my resistance to rest, I realized that at the root of it was fear. 

I was afraid that if I really rested, that I would find this lurking emptiness, a terrible aching void. Even worse, I’d have to feel the sheer enormity of my exhaustion. 

I feared that if I really rested, I’d never get up off the couch again. 

So I’d fill my calendar with tasks, projects, errands, things to get done…to fill the time and empty space. (This is what I now call “binge scheduling”)

The more I did and the faster I did it, the better. 

And just like I’d fill my calendar, I’d fill my body. With food. So I didn’t have to feel. 

But here’s what I now know: 

Busy-ness and emotional eating are defense mechanisms. They both create a false sense of safety, a sense of “control”. But in truth keep us emotionally starved.

Now, I no longer fear rest, the quiet, or space in my calendar. 

I know that if I don’t rest, and I just keep on going, going, going, I become clogged. Energetically and emotionally constipated, which creates a deep disconnect with myself, where I’m so numb that I can’t tell if I’m tired or I’m hungry. 

And then I get angry. And resentful. And can torch a small village if anyone crosses my path. 

I know that in the quiet stillness of rest, creation happens. New ideas get birthed, love and kindness deepen, and my intuition sharpens

So I’ve learned to stop fighting rest and instead, treasure it, and create space for it. I’ve learned when to say “enough is enough”. 

And when I feel fear start to creep back in, I simply say to myself “I trust that the important tasks of my life will resurface when I plug back into the world. Nothing will be lost. I give myself permission to take this time for myself.”

Feel free to use this mantra yourself, if you find yourself addicted to busy-ness, resisting rest or fearful of the quiet.

And know that true safety and peace is available to you (no matter what is going on in your world) if you’re simply willing to pause and rest. Even if it’s just for a minute. 

In service to your freedom,

P.S. I’ll be taking some time off to rest and rejuvenate over the Holidays but I’ll be back in the New Year! In the meantime, you can find resources here, and interviews here to continue to break free from emotional eating!

THIS is why.

December 14, 2020

After another emotional eating episode, how many times have you said to yourself “why does this keep happening?!” 

But you aren’t able to really get to the root of why…even though you know you should eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full…you’re frustrated that you just can’t do that consistently. 

Having been an emotional eater myself, I wasted years of my life in that shame-rage cycle of “why does this keep happening”. 

Ultimately what I discovered is: what you resist persists. 

You’ve been trying to control your compulsions with food through nutrition and fitness but it’s not really working. Because your emotional eating is still happening. And if you’re really honest, it’s been gradually getting worse

That’s because you haven’t accessed the Roots Of Your Emotional Eating. You haven’t gotten to the core of whats really going on

Leaving your compulsions with food to grow like weeds. 

Because what you resist persists

But when we heal the roots, which is what I’m so passionate about and is a core part of my work with my clients in all of my Escape From Emotional Eating programs, long lasting freedom and peace with food occurs. 

The 4 Roots of Emotional Eating are the answer
 to your question of “why does this keep happening?!”. I founded these Roots from over a decade of research and identifying patterns in my overeating episodes as well as those of hundreds of woman I’ve worked with. 

It’s how I can declare that I’ve been free from emotional eating for 5 years and counting. It’s how many of my clients are reaching major milestones of their own being free 2, 12, and 20 months and counting.

Because we’ve done the work to weed out our compulsions and heal the roots

Ready to take the first step in healing your Roots of Emotional Eating? 

Then I highly recommend taking the 4 Roots of Emotional Eating Clarity Quiz which will help you identify which of the 4 Roots of Emotional Eating is driving your overeating

You’ll also receive access to The Beginners Guide which will give you step-by-step instructions and multiple tools so you can start your own healing work in healing your roots. 

You can purchase the quiz and beginners guide right here

The Quiz & Guide are a great first step and they will create a shift in your relationship with food. Which is everything I desire for you. 

Access the quiz and guide here.

And remember, what you resist persists. 

In service to your freedom,

here’s the truth

December 7, 2020

Somewhere along the way you got your mental wires crossed when it comes to food. 

You thought you needed it to cope or connect with others…a reward at the end of a long stressful day.

You thought using it to numb your stress, anxiety and exhaustion was the only way to survive and thrive in this overwhelming world.

But here’s the truth…

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

You don’t need food to connect with others. 

The best rewards come without guilt or shame or bloating from overeating.

Surviving and thriving in this world can only truly happen when you aren’t carrying the burden of your emotional eating.

There are so many wires to uncross when it comes to food.

So much to unlearn.

Which is why I created Escape From Emotional Eating. 

A place for high-achieving women like you to have a safe space to learn how to uncross your wires when it comes to food. 

To learn how to use food as a nourishing asset, rather than a method of self-sabotage and self-destruction. 

Escape From Emotional Eating has become a sacred home for people like you who don’t resonate with Overeaters Anonymous, who don’t fit the typical stereotype of an emotional eater, and have been searching for a place to learn how to truly have a peaceful relationship with food, mind, body, and soul.

Because of that, I am so grateful we are connected <<First Name>>. 

Healing happens here. 

And I am committed to supporting you, every step of the way, on this very important journey.

In service to your freedom,

Read this before Thanksgiving

November 23, 2020

The American Holiday of Thanksgiving is coming up and I wanted to share a few recommendations on how to create peace with food on this holiday. 

1). Treat Thanksgiving like any other meal.  

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

You know that if you really wanted that pumpkin pie cheesecake you could easily go to the store and get one yourself. Or call up your Aunt Karen 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). Eat in peace, trusting your body already knows what to do.

Yes, your body <<First Name>>, already knows what to do. It’s your mind that loves to interfere. Today is a great day to start practicing trusting your body. Remember, you are literally a walking miracle. 


The recommendations I shared with you here are just a few of the same ones I share with all of my clients. 

Emotional eating is a learned behavior that must be unlearned.  

Finally, I am so grateful to be connected with you. 

In a world that is overwhelmingly saturated with superficial diet culture, I’m glad we’re connected here and doing the sacred work of healing the roots of your emotional eating together.

In service to your freedom,

PS. If you haven’t taken advantage of my dear friend Maria’s amazing interview series called Food Freedom, you can still access it here. She’s interviewing over 20 experts (myself included!) on how to heal your complicated relationship with food and body. Enjoy!

Be Honest

November 16, 2020
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Be honest… when you consider the possibility of receiving support to heal your emotional eating, do you feel (even slightly) embarrassed?

Have you said to yourself, “Why can’t I just figure this out on my own?!”  

As your coach, I must point out this pattern that I see so many high-achieving women make, who are just like you, because it’s keeping you trapped in the emotional eating cycle. 

It’s what I call: The Shame Of Receiving Support. 

This shame gets amplified because you’re used to doing it all, all the time. You’re smart. You know a lot about food (heck, you may have a certification in nutrition or work in the health and wellness field) but can’t figure out how to just eat “normal.” 

This shame, if it’s not transformed, turns into guilt, embarrassment, and then full-on-dead-stop resistance. 

The good news is that this energy of shame can be transformed! 

So many women tell me they feel this transformation the moment we connect for an Escape From Emotional Eating Discovery Session. They tell me, “it feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.” They feel relief they don’t have to carry this burden anymore, and most of all, they don’t have to do this alone. 

Receiving the right support increases your energy, intuition, and your ability to reach your full potential. 

Receiving the right support is what makes all the difference when it comes to healing your emotional eating for good. 

Ultimately, support = strength

If you allow the energy of shame to take over, it’ll trap you in the emotional eating cycle. You’ll continue sabotaging yourself because you can’t see your own blind spots

Take the first step to transforming your shame by clicking here right now and applying for an Escape From Emotional Eating Discovery Session. 

This is a powerful process where we’ll connect one-on-one.  I’ll listen deeply and intuitively to how your emotional eating is holding you back. Together, we’ll explore which of the Escape From Emotional Eating Programs is the right level of support for you. 

Apply now.

I’ll see you on the other side. 🙂

In service to your freedom,

PS. If you are looking for a place to vent your feelings, energetically vomit or act out past wounding, then the Escape From Emotional Eating Programs are not for you. 

But, if you are deeply committed to true growth, change, and transformation; you value high-level intuitive support; and you want to root out your compulsions with food for good so you can reach your full potential, click here right now.

Food Freedom

November 9, 2020
Food Freedom Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

My struggle with food was constant. Every day I was thinking about food and trying to control my eating. Fear was running my life. I was exhausted. 

I wanted to reclaim my time, energy, and brain-space from this unhealthy cycle with food. I knew repeating the same old pattern of solely focusing on nutrition and exercise wasn’t going to get me anywhere. 

This clarity and readiness to make a lasting change took me on a journey of exploring unconventional paths of healing that I’m deeply grateful for to this day. 

When my dear friend Maria told me she was creating an online series to support women in discovering how they too can overcome their challenges with food and body to step into the driver’s seat of their lives, and invited me to be a part of it, I immediately said yes! 

In this series called Food Freedom, Maria is interviewing 20+ experts (including me!) on topics ranging from how to overcome emotional eating, the dangers of dieting, what intuitive eating is, how to take back our power through simple mindset shifts, and ideas on how to create body confidence now. 

Here are just some of the things you’ll learn: 

  1. The truth about diets and why they don’t work 
  2. How to apply mindful eating and intuitive eating to your life
  3. The triggers that cause emotional eating 
  4. Simple somatic practices to overcome binge eating 
  5. Tips to boost your confidence right away
  6. How to shift your mindset and step into the driver’s seat of your life 

I’m excited to share that I have a complimentary ticket for you to attend. Click here to claim your free pass!
