When life gets stressful, do you find yourself running to food to cope? Do you find that any emotion causes you to want to eat, and to eat too much? If so, you’re not alone. On today’s episode of the Taste for Truth podcast (links below), I speak with Kristy McCammon, the creator of LifeUnbinged, about her struggle to break free from a life controlled by food.
What We Discussed on the Podcast

- How “none is so much easier than one”
- Learning to sit with uncomfortable emotions
- How different personalities approach weight loss
- Victory over emotional eating always boils down to renewing our mind using a variety of tools
- How reaching out in times of failure can circumvent an unhealthy spiral
- What a life of food freedom truly looks like
- How viewing boundaries as “life-giving” rather than “restricting” can help us stick to them

This is so helpful! The struggle is so real. Having her acknowledge how insanely difficult it is to sit in my feelings gives me tremendous hope. Im 62 and really struggling to stop binging.

So glad she gave you hope, Mary Jo! It’s so helpful to have someone who has struggled with the same things we struggle with and come out the other side!
