Podcast Episode 054: Is Stress ‘Eating’ You? – Susan Mitchell

Dec 13, 2016

“When I was working on my first book I surveyed 1000 people and 2 out of 3 reported they eat due to stress. The reality is, life throws us curve balls and food can become your comforter, your best friend. But food is only a quick fix and ultimately we have to deal with the underlying issues.” – Dr. Susan Mitchell
