Food /Body Freedom Tip

Emotions are data points.

Emotions tell us what our values are⁣. What we care about⁣. What are the unhealed parts of ourselves⁣. BUT only if we name them and feel them to heal them. 

We live in a society built off “positive vibes only”, never letting ourselves be sad or really feel anything. 

We numb, we avoid, we eat and then feel disgusted with ourselves.⁣ And we repeat the cycle. ⁣ 

If we want to feel empowered in our life we have to give permission to ourselves to feel ALL of our emotions, not just the positive ones. 

 Need help becoming emotionally empowered so you can stop emotional eating?

Stay tuned for an upcoming announcement in the next few weeks where my new offer will teach you exactly how!

Client Win To Celebrate

This week I want to celebrate my client Sarah Chich, Age 31.

Here is just a small snippet of what she had to say following the completion of my 90 Days to Food Freedom 1:1 Coaching Program

"Prior to working with Victoria: I was constantly in a state of emotional eating, overeating, and not listening to my body. I didn't know how to trust or listen to my body.

I had limited knowledge of the scientific evidence of WHY I continued to engage in this behavior.I thought I was going to end up a continuous, sad, anxious, overeater because it was my only method of coping. I didn't know I had such power within me.

Since working with Victoria: I have learned WHY my body continues to act in such a chaotic manner! I learned  why scientifically I emotionally eat and overeat, and how my brain actually works in terms of survival.

I learned tools, tips, tricks, techniques, and real-world practical methods that I can incorporate on a daily basis so I DO NOT have to overeat, binge-eat, or emotionally eat any more.

Victoria truly saved my life and provided me with so much confidence, knowledge, and strength that I didn't even know I had.

I truly cannot tell you the amount of knowledge Victoria has and how powerful it is; I don't have enough words to describe it. I could not refer this program enough."
