This is the podcast for you if:
—you’ve tried everything you can think of to fix your eating, and want to find something that will actually last this time,
—you're done with the food-hangovers, grinding fatigue and crushing low moods that come with binge eating, and
—you're ready to make peace with the skin-you're-in and reach your natural weight with newfound ease.

There is a way to change your eating, love your body, and create more freedom, energy and passion in your life without being pulled down by food.

You can heal from bingeing and overeating for the long term—because, this time, it’s about finding what's right for you, based on your unique experience and life.

The YoYo Freedom Podcast explores:
—the reasons you might be overeating,
—quick wins to start changing your eating right away,
—effective strategies to manage cravings and urges,
—what to do if you're an emotional eater,
—how to tune into your body—even if you've been turning down the volume for a long time, and
—the importance of self-care and what that can look like.

And, most importantly, how to trust yourself and love yourself as you go.

Gemma combines her knowledge and skills as an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Practitioner, LCS Certified Life and Weightloss Coach, and two-times-BSc(Hons) graduate in nutrition and psychology, with the insight gained from her own nearly-30-year battle to end bingeing.

    #025: The holidays—carving out more of what you long for

    Discover a little trick to create more of what you actually want this Christmas.
    What’s that got to do with food and eating?
    Well, overeating in a way that isn’t enjoyable isn’t usually about the food at all—it’s more likely to be in response to something else entirely.
    Food is effective in the moment. It does create a little bit of what you’re longing for … it’s just not the answer you really crave and, when overeating or bingeing become a pattern that’s repeated often, it can really bring you down.
    Listen in to hear one simple way to create more of your kind of Christmas magic so you don’t have to rely on food as a substitute.
