If you've done any reading in nutrition and health, it probably didn't take you long to notice that for every expert promoting a revolutionary new diet plan, there's an equal and opposite expert who swears by a completely different style of eating. They all have scientific studies to back them up, and they all promise that THEIR system will give you health, happiness, and long life. So, when the facts contradict each other, how can we know what to eat? In this practical new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, cuts through the confusion with some powerful insights from the field of Mind Body Nutrition and shows you how to tap into a highly reliable source of dietary wisdom: You!

If so, then you won't want to miss this podcast episode, where Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, shares some surprising new insights that can transform the field of nutrition for good.

Most people who are trying to lose some extra weight don't care about how it got there -- they just want it gone, and preferably yesterday. But 99% of people who lose weight on a diet gain it back within a year, often because they haven't fully addressed the underlying reasons why the excess weight appeared in the first place. Weight can be a powerful teacher, and it tends to show up when there's something we need to learn. If we try to bypass or ignore the lessons, weight has a funny way of hanging around until we actually listen to what it's trying to tell us. In this illuminating new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, explores several of the messages that excess weight can have for us. If you've struggled to lose weight, or if you've lost weight and regained it, tune in and see if one of these messages might be for you.
