Episode #99: What’s underneath “I need to diet” with Health Coach Laura Folkes
For many people, the feeling of “I need to diet” is the background music of their lives. Sometimes it’s at lower volumes and then sometimes, it’s at so loud it drives a panic to find a new diet or approach to quiet the thoughts down.
In today’s episode, we talk with my client Laura Folkes about:
- Her journey of losing 60 pounds yet finding herself trapped in the fear of gaining the weight back that lead to a battle with food
- How adding in this food group was life-changing and helped stabilize her thoughts and appetite around food
- What she discovered was really happening underneath feeling fat and like she needed to count points again to lose weight

She ensures her clients don’t feel deprived by guiding them to make small, incremental changes so the journey is more enjoyable. After successfully losing 60 pounds and working through her own emotional relationship with food, Laura recognizes there are many factors keeping individuals from sticking to what they know works but it’s her mission to help others overcome these factors to become healthier and happier.
