    Ep 28: How to Reduce Hunger and Crush Cravings

    Lately, I've been having so many conversations with women who sometimes feel like they're at the will of their cravings. I know how frustrating it is when you're trying to change your body composition but find yourself overeating and then judging yourself for it. If this sounds familiar, don't worry – I’m here to help! In this episode, I share my tips and tricks to help you understand your hunger, fuel your body, and avoid unnecessary rigid eating. The best part? You don't need to give up your favorite foods to make progress. You just need to make some minor adjustments to see a big difference! 
    I've spent over 30 years helping people take control of their cravings and feel incredible. And I've found that if you're struggling with willpower around food, it's often a biological cue telling you that you're hungry. By listening to what your body needs, you can choose what you want to eat according to your eating strategy, intentions, philosophies, and beliefs and still achieve your goals. Say goodbye to feeling guilty, ashamed, or hangry and say hello to eating in a way that sustains the body you want while satisfying your appetite!
