My name is Renée Jones and I was honored and humbled to have been asked to speak at TEDx. I wanted to share my talk with you by way of introduction as I join Carrie here on carriebrown.com to share my thoughts on Emotional Eating. Over the coming weeks I will be sharing articles around the topic of Emotional Eating which I hope will be helpful to all of you who struggle in your relationship with food.
“Most diets, detoxes, or pills promise overnight and effortless weight loss, but it never lasts, and ‘yo-yo dieting’ leads to greater and more demoralizing weight gain. We can follow a diet until something drives us to the refrigerator for comfort or stress relief. Renée Jones shows you how to get free from the emotional eating that sabotages every diet. Her first book was “What’s Really Eating You: Overcome the Triggers of Comfort Eating.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.”
Renée Jones is a counselor and coach specializing in overcoming emotional eating. After 40 years on the Diet Yo-Yo, she struggled to find what worked for her while emotional eating sabotaged every attempt. When she finally overcame that emotional eating to lose her weight, maintenance on a low-fat diet left her tired, hungry, and cranky. In April of 2015, she found the ketogenic lifestyle and later Carrie Brown’s recipes, which freed her from the Diet Yo-Yo and dark mood swings.
Now she helps others get free of their emotional eating and other baggage so their hearts can heal along with their bodies. She has a Master’s degree in Counseling with certifications in both traditional and contemporary models as well as Horse-Assisted and relaxation methods. She has an international counseling and coaching practice.
