In this episode, I discuss:

In this episode of the Crave Cure Series, we explore how our emotions impact our cravings. We have Samantha Skelly from Hungry For Happiness as our guest. Today, we discuss  emotional eating and food cravings. We also talk about how we use food to feel better and to relieve painful emotions. Our relationship to food is not only to obtain nourishment, but also use it as a way to cope with our life. We can change this!

In the last episode, Drew Manning shared how he voluntarily gained 70 lbs to learn more about food cravings and how his daring experiment affected him emotionally. If you missed this episode, you need to listen to it now!

Next week’s episode is about hormones and cravings. Dr. Kyrin Duston and I talk about how to reduce cravings and how to balance our female hormones with ease. Be sure to listen when this episode comes out!
