OH! And before I go… Simi & I released a brand new guide for you today! Don’t miss it!

“I find it so hard to focus on enjoying/noticing my food when I’m eating around others, and I usually just chat right past my fullness indicators. It’s so easy to just stop eating when everyone else does, instead of when I’m comfortably full.” 

Relate? DEFINITELY don’t miss this one 🙂
