Today we have the super amazing Registered Dietician and Food Therapist, Shira Lenchewski to help us get to the bottom of WHY our eating patterns may be sabotaging your results, how to recognize your emotional hang-ups around food (i.e. trust issues, the pleaser trap, a hot-and-cold pattern), and all the necessary tools to overcome them to stop letting food rule our lives! Not only does Shira have a strong science foundation but as the resident nutrition expert at GOOP, contributor to the Emmy Award Winning “The Doctors” TV Show and Author (who is getting so much Instagram love from Mandy Moore, Lauren Conrad, Jordana Brewster, Minka Kelly, and more!), she shares her refreshingly practical and disarming food therapy guide, that will help you hone the skills needed to put her get-healthy intentions into daily action in your life.
