Drew welcomes Melissa Hartwig back to the podcast to talk about her new book, Food Freedom Forever. This new book goes beyond Melissa’s Whole 30 Diet and delves into the mental and emotional challenges related to making a true lifestyle change. Melissa offers up ways to overcome a food addiction such as the ‘one bite’ rule and how to change the language you use to describe your relationship with food.
Both Melissa and Drew have first-hand experience with the struggles of transforming their minds and bodies, of looking inward for happiness, and that it doesn’t matter what other people think.
Drew is a dedicated fitness professional but also an accomplished public speaker.
