Her Brilliant Health Revolution with Dr. Kyrin


#037: Too Much On Her Plate with Dr. Melissa McCreery

What does food mean to you? Is it simply nourishment for your body? Or, is it a reward when you feel the need to celebrate or do you reach for a quick bite when you are stressed?

People attribute different values and meanings to food and eating, which can cause health problems when it is overly associated with emotional nourishment. Dr. Melissa McCreery explores the psychology of overeating and why we women literally and figuratively often have too much on our plates and what to do about it.

Key Notes:

  • Emotional overeating
  • The meaning of food
  • Mindful eating
  • Managing stress
  • Resources to actively soothe yourself instead of food



“Our relationship with food is so much more than food.” – Dr. Melissa McCreery

“We have our own relationship with food but if we don’t have an understanding of all the ways that food comes into play in our lives – we’re missing so much of what’s going on.” – Dr. Melissa McCreery

“We’re often not really paying attention to the color, the smell, the texture of our food to the fullest.” – Dr. Kyrin Dunston

“Digestive enzymes are increased if you eat slowly, sit down, savor and are mindful.” – Dr. Kyrin Dunston

“We don’t realize when we’re using food as a substitute for what we really want because mindless eating shuts down our emotion.” – Dr. Kyrin Dunston

“We didn’t learn skills to manage stress and difficult emotions and we learned to leverage food for that purpose.” – Dr. Kyrin Dunston

“Her brilliant health is expansive.” - Dr. Melissa McCreery
