|Renee Jones| What's Really Eating You?
When it comes to diets, pills, and other fads - how can we truly keep the weight off?  Special guest Renee Jones has figured this out and beyond age 50.  In this podcast episode we get into the mindsets concerning weight loss and how to "face our stuff, so we no longer need to stuff our face."  Renee spent 40 years on the diet Yo-Yo, and in 2012, she finally smashed it by overcoming emotional eating, and she's maintained her healthy weight since then. Her mission is to help others who struggle with their weight, who look to food for stress relief and to soothe themselves. No diet, exercise routine, or magic diet potion can counter the effects when we’ve stuffed down our feelings and followed it with a food chaser.  We have to heal our hearts. When we face our stuff, we no longer need to stuff our faces. With a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Counseling and a Clinical Residency, Renee utilizes traditional and contemporary models as well as relaxation and horse-assisted methods to help her clients free themselves by addressing emotional, physical, and spiritual needs.  In 2011, she opened an international private practice in counseling serving clients and colleagues in the U. S., United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, India, Vietnam, South Africa, Romania, Australia, and New Zealand. Renee's Website: Renee's Book: My website:
