010: Why Food Guilt Happens And How To Prevent It From Ruining Your Holidays

Mind over matter, we hear that quite often but do we realize the depth of that 3-word phrase? It means the human brain is so powerful that it is capable of controlling even our emotions, our actions, and our outcome. If that is the case, then all we need to do is to leverage the mind over matter adage and use it into something more beneficial for us. In this episode, Sloane talks about guilt in general, where it comes from, and what triggers it. She also focuses on food guilt and how to manage it so that the coming holidays will be one that is joyous and merry instead of a guilt-laden celebration just because food is abundant during this season.
