Episode 86: Signs You May Be an Emotional Eater with Jessica Procini











Brief summary of show:


How do you know if you’re an emotional eater?


Have you leaned on food to help you get through an emotion, time in your time, or something else?


Do you turn to food in happy and sad moments? Or when unwinding after a long day?


We’re talking about emotional eating on the podcast this week, with my guest Jessica Procini.



Jessica Procini is on a mission to help high-achieving women heal the roots of their emotional eating so they can use food as a nourishing asset rather than a self-destructive way to cope, soothe and attempt to escape their busy, stressful lives.


She created Escape From Emotional Eating®, a unique process grounded in a decade of research, a background in Psychology of Eating, Transformational Coaching methods, and her own personal emotional eating journey because Overeaters Anonymous didn’t resonate with her and the 932 hours she spent in therapy never helped her end her fight with food.


She knew there needed to be a different kind of support... one that got to the roots of emotional eating.


Now 100% free from her compulsions with food, Jessica helps other high-achieving women get to the roots of their emotional eating through her year-long programs, retreats, keynotes, and workshops.


As a sought-after thought leader, Jessica’s work has received multiple awards from the Institute of Psychology of Eating and has been featured in noteworthy media outlets such as ABC, CBS, and MindBodyGreen.
