Conventional wisdom tells us that we gain weight only when we take in more calories than we use up in our day to day activities and exercise routines. But as today’s research clearly shows, there are many more reasons why the body may hang on to unwanted excess weight, and these reasons often have more to do with human psychology than with any nutritional formula. In this new video, I explore the connections between traumatic childhood experiences and adult obesity. You’ll discover how and why the body can respond to trauma with weight gain, and you’ll also learn some innovative ways to help your body let go of what it no longer needs.
