If you have been struggling with your weight loss goals know that a healthy body is about more than diet and exercise. The human brain is wired to find the easiest, fastest way to satiate hunger. Unfortunately in our modern world, processed food is designed to be quick and easy. So beating yourself up for reaching for a bag of something to snack on will only cause unnecessary stress. To change existing or create new habits and behaviors we need to create new neural pathways. Drew’s guest, Eliza Kingsford, helps her patients do just that. She is a licensed psychotherapist and author of the book, Brain-Powered Weight Loss.
