Heather Sayers Lehman empowers people to break their cycles of stress eating and create a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. They are tired of obsessing about food, struggling with their weight and feeling guilty about their stress eating. After conducting over 3000 health coaching sessions, she authored Don’t Eat It. DEAL With It! Your Guidebook On How To STOP Eating Your Emotions. She teaches the Emotional Eating Freedom Formula™ to show you how to finally stop stuffing emotions with food. Graduates become empowered around food, create consistent healthy habits and lose weight without dieting, counting, restricting, or cutting off body parts! Find Heather at
