This week’s guest and hunger expert is Tricia Nelson. Her mission focuses on emotional eating and how to heal that hunger for a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle. Her mission and journey was inspired by her own experience with weight and her struggle to diet effectively and lose the weight she wanted to to both feel good in her skin and also mitigate her risks for illness in the future.

She discusses the yo-yo weight loss struggle where her weight would fluctuate and she could never truly keep her weight steady. She discusses key factors to determining if you are an emotional eater or food addict and how to decipher in the moment if you are emotionally hungry or physically hungry. WOW!

Tricia Nelson lost fifty pounds by identifying and healing the underlying causes of her emotional eating.

Tricia has spent over thirty years researching the hidden causes of the addictive personality. Tricia is an Emotional Eating Expert and author of the #1 bestselling book, Heal Your Hunger, 7 Simple Steps to End Emotional Eating Now.
