Episode 64: Food For Thought

As a Nutritionist, I recognize that the weeks leading up to our Winter Holiday season are packed with opportunities for eating, overeating and unhealthy eating! In this episode I share 8 tips to stop over-consuming sugar this season. Food For Thought is really about the thoughts that lead to consuming too many sweets or eating on autopilot. You know how to Boss Your Brain around (Episode 59), which is key to breaking the holiday cycle of ‘just one more’, or ‘I never eat sweets expect during ……’ I also share the ways that over-drinking and overeating OVERLAP.

In today’s intro I also highlight my friend Chris Engen’s program “7 Nutritional Foundations for a Balanced Brain”. This program is available in a year-long format through the end of 2022. (Beginning in 2023 the course will include 12 weeks of support). Chris holds an Advanced Certification as a Recovery Nutrition Coach (CRNC2) for  Nutritional Therapy / Amino Acid Therapy from The Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition. This course includes live group coaching, a Hippa compliant message board and a money back guarantee. I hope you will check it out if you are seeking a balanced brain!
