Project Empowerment is excited to have on author, Karen R. Keonig to discuss her new book, Outsmarting Overeating, Boost Your Life Skills, End Your Food Problems.
Anyone who has struggled to make peace with the refrigerator and the scale can identify with the vicious cycle of painfully forging a bit of progress, only to see it vanish after getting fed up with the struggle to eat healthfully. They become so tired of thinking about all of the “should” and “shouldn’ts” surrounding food that they throw up their hands in despair, and try to accept their eating as it is, until that too becomes frustrating, and the cycle of unsuccessfully trying to improve their eating habits begins all over again.
Outsmarting Overeating: Boost Your Life Skills, End Your Food Problems offers a powerful new approach for stopping this cycle once and for all. The solution it provides has very little to do with food and everything to do with developing the essential skills that the majority of overeaters lack for coping with life’s ups and downs.
Outsmarting Overeating explores eight essential life skills, such as physical self-care, handling emotions, problem solving, and living consciously. It illustrates how lacking each skill can propel individuals toward unnecessary eating, and how, in turn, unwanted eating prevents skill development.

Host Cyrus Web welcomes author Karen Koenig to #ConversationsLIVE to discuss what led her to write the book OUTSMARTING OVEREATING and how it is helping others to rethink food and the way they consume it.
Frugivore Magazine wrote an article, "Is the Black Church causing obesity by overeating?", raising the concern of obesity amongst African Americans. In 2013, a study conducted by Northwestern University observed 2,433 particpants over an 18-year time period. Out of the particpants, 41% were African Americans who attending one religious event weekly was at risk to become obese.
Dr. Thomas A. Laveist, Director of the Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions, states that,
"Black church culture is out of alignment with some biblical teachings, particularly when it comes to how we eat. Church culture has got us drinking Kool-Aid, eating white bread, fried chicken, large servings of macaroni and cheese and collard greens drenched with salty hog maws (foods that are high in sugar, salt, calories, and carbohydrates that trigger health problems). We’re eating this in the church basement at dinner and at church conventions! Meanwhile, the Bible teaches against gluttony."
Is it time for the Black Church Culture to regain it's health? Join TruthTalk with special guest Zhivi Williams, health & wellness coach and advocate of Leading by Example. Topic of discussion will be on regainig focus on health through clean eating, exercise, and weight maintenance.

Do you remember the song, More, More, More by Andrea True Connection? The question in it asks, "How do you like it?" The 60s and 70s was a time of social unrest in many facets of society. To deal with it we endulged ourselves in the "freedom" of everything. If it felt good we did it. But it didn't end there. We're still like that today. We just put different packaging to it.
What do you overdo? Think about it. There is something in our lives that we have or give an over abundance of attention to. Is it eating? Exercising? Working? Shoes? Whatever we do in excess we show an insatiable appetite for that is beyond what God intended it for.
