Busy, Stressed, and Food Obsessed!
Thursday at 9 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness Channel
Are you a busy, stressed and hungry go-getter? So many of us are hungry for "something,” but that something isn't always food! We often use food to fill the voids in our life rather than taking the time to slow down and really connect with our true needs. We may actually be hungry for fun, a nap or a hug!
In a non-judgmental and practical way, Lisa Lewtan offers simple tips and strategies in all areas of healthy living, including food, exercise, relationships, stress, fun, spirituality and any other area that can help us become our healthiest best selves.
Join in as we explore what it takes to be healthy, happy, and hip in this busy, stressful world! “Busy, Stressed, and Food Obsessed!” is broadcast live every Thursday at 9 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness Channel.
Lisa Lewtan is a Healthy Living Strategist, the founder of Healthy, Happy, and Hip, and author of the Amazon bestselling and award winning book "Busy, Stressed, and Food Obsessed!"
After literally collapsing from years of relentless stress and self-neglect that it took to build a successful technology company, Lisa used her entrepreneurial skills to self-hack her own mind and body and restore her health. She then went on to feel better than ever and to help others do the same.
A graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, she now helps highly successful superstars to slow down, chill out, develop a better relationship with food, look good and feel great. Her articles have been featured in numerous publications including The Huffington Post, Better after 50, and MindBodyGreen.com.
