Weight Loss Counselor and Founder of PackYourOwnBag.com, Renee Jones, recently signed an agreement with Ainsley & Allen Publishing to publish her book What’s Really Eating You? – Overcome the Triggers of Comfort Eating. This new book is a guide to facing issues and making different choices to find the parallels that can provide freedom from emotional, stress, and comfort eating.
According to Jones, “At a young age, our mothers would give us a pacifier when we were upset. As we get older, perhaps we are given certain foods when we have a problem. We get in the habit: when something is bothering us, we put something in our mouths. And it could be a cigarette, a drink or food of any sort – perhaps sweet or salty. And even more often, it’s something that we learned to depend on as a child.”
Continuing to do this takes a toll on the body, especially as someone gets older. Jones finds that if the emotional triggers can be identified, changes can be made to deal with those triggers in a way that would not involve food. “We don’t have to stuff our feelings and follow it with a food chaser,” she said.
Jones’ mission is to help women who are struggling with their weight, who look to food to relieve stress, boredom, and emotional issues, and then feel that their value as a person is tied to their weight or any other kind of performance.
