The Eating Coach

Feb 21, 2018

This is the second part of how to stop stress eating. Today we bring the two topics of (1) preventing compulsion when you are under pressure, and then (2) managing those urges when they do occur. This is a much more realistic aim than completely wiping this problem out. I am joined by the cast of West Side Story (honest ;-)

#4 The substance you absolutely must experiment with eliminating



#1 Managing your environment

#2 Managing your hand when it wants to reach out for the junk
