Acknowledging my Wonderful Wife, GlutenFreeGena.

Dr. Todd & Eugena Austin from GlutenFreeGena.com at P.F.Chang’s.

Dear AskDrTodd.com followers and “The Dr. Todd Show” viewers,

I’d like to take a moment to give some major props to the love of my life, Mrs. Eugena B. Austin. I met Eugena 20 years ago. We got engaged 19 1/2 years ago and have been married for over 17 years. Together we’ve had 3 beautiful daughters (ages 6 through 11 as I type this).

Gena is an awesome Licensed Massage Therapist as well as my Chiropractic Assistant / Office Manager at AFC.

Eugena has struggled with weight problems off and on since before we met. Then in August 2013, she had her “I’ve had it” moment. That’s when her alter ego GLUTEN FREE GENA was born. Then last month, at the insistence of some of her facebook friends and my facebook friends as well as a plethora of our Austin Family Chiropractic facebook fans, she became a GF blogger too!!!

As of today, my amazing wife has lost a grand total of 33.5 lbs in less than 4 months. She is ‘CRUSHING IT’ as my social media mentor Gary V. would say. She is truly an inspiration to many others through her facebook sharing and blogging. I’m blessed for the opportunity to share in the experience with her. We celebrated our first ever Gluten Free Thanksgiving holiday together just a few weeks ago. And it was awesome!

I love you with all of my heart, Eugena B. Austin! And I’m incredibly proud of you for now being at your lowest weight in over 12 years! 🙂 You rock, Gena!

If you haven’t already done so, please head over to Gena’s new GlutenFreeGena.com blog and / or it’s associated Gluten Free Gena Facebook page to become a fan, follow her exploits or just to say “Hello”.

Thanks in advance,

Dr. Todd Austin

Dear Dr. Todd, I tend to be an EMOTIONAL EATER. What advice can you offer me?

[The title of this post is a question that I received via email (at draustin@royell.net) from Eileen.]

Hi Eileen,

That’s a great question! I’m aware of folks who eat because they are bored, sad, upset, happy, etc. Of course WE only NEED to EAT when we are actually HUNGRY.

To shed more light on the topic of EMOTIONAL EATING, I took my traveling video blog called “THE DOCTOR TODD SHOW” on location to VIVACIOUS WELLNESS in Springfield, IL. Janet C. knows a thing or two about EMOTIONAL EATING. So let’s hear what she has to say, shall we?

Thank you for the awesome question, Eileen! And thank you for the incredible information, Janet!!!

Yours in health,
