There's a fascinating connection between our emotions and our relationship with food. Jenny was worried because she thought of herself as an "emotional eater." She weighed more than she wanted to, and she had developed a habit of using food to fill the gaps in her emotional life. Having been raised by a single mom, she learned to cook at a young age, and she loved it; food soon became her friend, her mother, her intimate partner, the only place she could count on feeling nourished. In her first breakthrough session, Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, helped Jenny to see that while her food "issues" were actually important coping strategies for her during certain periods of her life, she's now reached a stage of maturity and empowerment where she is able to rely on other sources of nourishment. Marc helped Jenny to revise her story about her past and understand that she has not been broken, but is right on track for personal growth. Tune in now to Jenny's follow up session and see how her new story is unfolding!
