Emotional Eating When You Feel Down

Apologies for the super-short newsletter today but I just saw this and had to share it with you.

“A study in Psychosomatic Medicine has confirmed that people tend to consume food in order to self-medicate their feelings of stress or anxiety.

P.S.  Jon is continuing his fund-raising efforts for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. One week was not long enough.

Ten percent of all book proceeds will go to St. Jude.

Thanks to all of you who have participated!
