Mcayla is going to share with you solutions to help you curb emotional eating.
In this episode she also discusses how a medically supervised fast can help you determine when and why you’re eating. But dude, here’s the deal. Though I would typically put the info on this 3 day fast in the show notes, it is so so so important that you listen to this episode to understand how and when to do it. I’m dead serious people. I do not, I repeat, I do not want you to just fast for 3 days. This will NOT set you up for success! So please, download this episode and listen to the whole thing before moving forward.
