Jessica Procini on 3 tips to escape from emotional eating

by | Jan 6, 2020 | Business-Building Resources

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and you’re excited to kick off a new year and a new decade! 

You’re probably ready to get back to healthy eating, regular meals, and a consistent schedule. I know I sure am after traveling to Germany and Italy for the holidays. We went to Germany to visit my stepdaughter, Meghan, and then to Florence, Italy (one of my favorite cities!) to plan the retreat I’m hosting later this year! Here are some pics from our trip:



The pizza, pasta and gelato was AMAZING – but now I need to get back to my Shakeology vegan smoothies and yummy healthy salads.

Most wellness and health coaches are totally aware of what foods are considered healthy and which foods don’t make the cut. We know about “healthy food” but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t “emotional eaters.”

I know I’ve struggled with emotional eating in the past. 

Starting a new year is the best time to regroup and focus on our goals for the year – including how we want to feel when it comes to what food we put in our bodies.

That’s why I want to introduce you to Jessica Procini, an Emotional Eating Healer and the founder of Escape From Emotional Eating®.

Jessica is on a mission to help others use food as fuel rather than a way to cope, soothe or escape their busy, stressful life. She consciously created and specifically designed Escape From Emotional Eating from her own emotional eating journey because Overeaters Anonymous didn’t resonate and therapy wasn’t enough when it came to getting help to fully end her fight with food. Now being 100% free from her compulsions with food, she helps others do the same through her levels of support, such as her retreats called The ESCAPE, her year-long transformational programs and through her various public talks, events and workshops.

Jessica has been awarded the “Top Health Coach Award” by the Institute of Psychology of Eating three years in a row and has been featured on various media outlets such as CBS, Philadelphia Magazine and MindBodyGreen, just to name a few. To learn more about her visit

When it comes to eating healthy, not everyone understands the important differences between physical hunger and emotional hunger.
