Dream Cast Podcast: Episode 154 - Escaping from Emotional Eating with Jessica Procini

Of the people who I know well, I can't think of anyone who is NOT an emotional eater when under stress.

It's something that we as humans use as a coping mechanism. Food brings us comfort, joy, and sometimes escape from the stressful thoughts bouncing around in our heads.

But when that stress is the type that lingers and the emotional eating along with it, this can lead to bigger health problems.

My guest on the Dream Cast today is an expert in this area. Jessica Procini is an emotional eating healer who helps others to use food as fuel rather than a way to soothe or escape their busy, stressful life.

Listen to this episode to learn:

  • What causes emotional eating
  • How to break the habit of emotional eating
  • Tips to start using food as fuel instead!

Women Seeking Wholeness Podcast: Episode 36: ESCAPING EMOTIONAL EATING

You wouldn’t look at Jessica Procini and think she’d ever had a problem with unconscious self-feeding.  Yet, she has walked through an intense journey of self-love starvation, using food to fill the void. Overeaters Anonymous didn’t resonate and therapy wasn’t enough when it came to getting help to fully end her fight with food.

She eventually used her personal power and innate wisdom to become an Emotional Eating Healer and the founder of Escape From Emotional Eating®.

Based in Philadelphia, she is on a mission to help busy, successful women use food as fuel rather than a way to cope, soothe or escape their busy, stressful lives. Being 100% free from her compulsions with food, she now helps others do the same.

In this episode:

  • How do we get out of the freaking RAT RACE of overthinking EATING?  (There are a million different eating plans out there…how do you intuit which foods and ways of eating are best for YOU?)
  • How do we use food as a way to “run away from ourselves”?
  • Why is a “NOURISHMENT FIRST” mentality the doorway to transformation and freedom?
  • What are the best ways to untangle physical vs. emotional hunger?
  • What are the actual roots of emotional eating, for most of us?

The Guilt-Free Guide to Satisfying Midnight Snack Cravings

Be Well Philly"We’ve all been there: It’s 1:30 a.m., you’re hanging out with your friends (or your three dogs) binge watching Orange is the New Black when you get the late night munchies. So you break out a bag of chips and some cookie dough ice cream and, before the next episode starts, you’ve eaten an entire bag of salt and vinegar chips and a whole pint of Ben and Jerry’s. You look down at the damage you’ve done and think Yiiiikes. I’m definitely going to regret this. Never again.

But guys, it doesn’t have to be this way! You can still satisfy your midnight cravings and not feel like you have to kill yourself at the gym the next day. I spoke with Philly-based holistic health and weight-loss coach Jessica Procini, of Laugh Yourself Skinny, and she clued us in to how to satisfy midnight munchies without feeling a hint of guilt about it."

6 Secret Gems in Trader Joe’s Frozen Food Aisle

trader-joes-lead photo by Claudia GavinGuess what? This got old very quickly. I prefer eating food rather than making it. And unless you’re a Powerball winner and rolling dough, you can understand why eating out at the healthiest farm-to-table restaurants every night of the week isn’t an option, either.

So I was determined to find a solution that would save me from slaving away over the stove for hours but that didn't force me to give up eating the foods that were good for me. And that's when I discovered this secret: the frozen food aisle at Trader Joe's."

What Your Poop Says About Your Health

toilet_text1"Did you know you can learn a lot about yourself when you go to the bathroom? It’s true—what comes out of your body can shed some serious light about what’s going on inside of it.

So yes, children: Today we’re going to talk about poop.

Normally, talking about poop would be a very awkward conversation. But since Philly health coach Jessica Procini, who once dabbled in stand-up comedy, makes learning about poop and what it means for your health so darn funny, it almost (aaaaalllllmost) cuts the awkwardness completely."

Just a few years ago I was guilty of these habits. In fact, I used to eat breakfast and lunch while I was trying to meet deadlines at work. When I got home I'd have dinner sitting on the couch in front of TV while catching the latest episode of The Bachelor. Sometimes I used to get so engrossed in whatever I was doing that I could finish my food without even realizing it...:
