    but what if your eating healthy whole foods and your stressed?

    She’s not talking in absolutes here but in terms of what is ‘typical’. If your eating healthy whole foods and your stressed then your a-typical (possibly because you’re level of mindfulness is higher than that of the majority of people). Namaste

    Avoiding the “stress-eating habit” is a bit difficult. Comfort foods are just so irresistible. However, it is proper to workout the stress rather than eating it. Thanks for this video!
