Hey there, I’m Heather. I’m a dietitian and the founder of http://www.heatherkjones.com – a weight loss site that focuses on healing and hope instead of diets and deprivation. I’m also the creator of Smaller Size Bigger Life, an online coaching program for women who struggle with emotional eating, overeating, or body image issues.

I’m excited to guest post on Skinnytaste again today, and to be the nutrition expert for the upcoming second Skinnytaste cookbook! (The new cookbook will be available in the fall of 2016, and it will feature both easy recipes ready in less than 30 minutes and slow cooker recipes.)
