StacieOG ,

Love this podcast!!

So glad to find this podcast. I binged the first 7 and can’t wait for the next one to come out. She definitely relates to women that have been down the diet rollercoaster for years.

Not a Cookie Cutter Approach to Weight Loss

I've listened to the first two episodes! Great
tips! I have been part of Dr E 9 month program since September and have found her to be very balanced in her approach with the goal of finding what works best for
each individual and their lifestyle. appreciate that she doesn't put people in a box or promote a cookie cutter approach to weight loss. My biggest takeaway so far is taking a pause before eating off my plan to determine why I’m wanting it and identifying what feelings may be involved. Being more aware of what and why I am eating has helped me lose almost 30lbs!

Sara McMillian ,

I love Doctor Mom

I have worked with Dr. Emily for almost 2 years. She has given me the tools to create a better life. You won’t want to Miss these quick podcasts and change YOUR life!!!
