This week, I have a special bonus for you. One of my colleagues (and good friends) is Dr. Ellen Hendriksen, who hosts the Savvy Psychologist podcast. 

So much of what we talk about in terms of nutrition actually concerns psychology. One of the most frequently asked questions I get from you is how to deal with impulse control. So I thought you might be interested in listening to her episode on How to Handle Food Cravings, which includes several craving culprits, as well as advice to help you practice mindful eating.

  • How some foods produce a "natural high"
  • The effects of stress, boredom, and hunger
  • 7 tips to stave off food cravings
  • & more!

And if you find you like listening, please subscribe to the Savvy Psychologist podcast on iTunes or Stitcher. Thanks for tuning in ... and I hope you enjoy Ellen's zero-judgment approach to a happier, healthier mind as much as I do!
