Hi! I’m Jenna. A born-and-raised farm girl with nothing more than a passion and a dream to help others find freedom from food, as an Emotional Eating Coach. Using food as comfort has been my fallback my entire life and I have struggled with obesity because of an unhealthy relationship with food. When I graduated university with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 2010, my weight had climbed to 295 pounds. The day I stepped on the scale and saw that number staring back at me was a turning point in my life. I developed the tools to help me get out of my vicious cycle and finally gain my health back. I no longer turned to food for comfort and found other healthy modalities that helped me deal with my severe depression. Through my formal education and experience, I believe nutrient-dense foods are the key to optimal health. Nurturing the body starts with whole food. But I also believe it’s not about the food. How we view food and our relationships towards food is the bigger issue. The harder issue, the issue that people shy away. Keeping the weight off for 5 years isn’t because nutrition became my passion, but because I learned to have a healthy relationship with food.
This course was created for you if you get that hangry feeling, have a mid-afternoon energy slump, or ever feel out of control around food because you're so ravenous.
When we miss a meal, our blood sugar lowers. When this happens our body releases hormones – cortisol and epinephrine – in an attempt to raise blood glucose levels back to normal. Such hormones also happen to lead to irritability or that hangry feeling.
The hangry phenomenon varies in individuals and also by diet. There may be certain foods in your diet that immediately spike blood sugar, only to have it crashing hard thereafter and repeating the cycle. Such types of foods are those that contain refined sugars and grains and are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream upon digestion.
If you can relate, it's time to Combat Your Hangry and take control of your hormones!
