Holiday Eating Tips With Dr. Nina

Dr. Nina Says
OK, as we are in the grip of "The Holiday Season" aka "The Eating Season" I though it would be a great idea to call in our favorite expert on eating disorders at "Entertain Me" Dr. Nina Savelle-Rocklin to offer tips to us about how to keep it in check.

Dr. Nina is awesome as she does not recommend dieting, I mean really dieting never works, she digs until she finds the root of the overeating and works with it from there. So here with a few tips to help you through the rest of "The Eating Season" is Dr. Nina!

Here are some tips and strategies for how to make it through the Holiday Season without losing control:

I suggest that trigger foods may be correlated with specific emotions.  She says, “If you are drawn to pumpkin pie and sweets, maybe you need more comfort and sweetness in your life.”

Dr. Nina also helps normalize real family dynamics during the holidays.  She asks listeners, “Does it seem as if everyone else is living in a Hallmark commercial, full of peace, love and happiness - and your family is more like a reality show?”

Check out her Holiday podcast below:

As Dr. Nina says, “If you struggle with food, weight and body image, the holidays can be difficult.  But with a little help, you can survive them without losing control, or losing your mind!”
