Helping your appetite regulation system

Hey everyone- want to change your brain and help your body’s appetite regulation system work at its best??

Then try these hacks:

Step 1: eat more whole, fresh, minimally processed foods (lean meats, fish, eggs, yogurt, fruit, vegetables, tubers, beans, whole grains, nuts & seeds)

Step 2: eat slowly and mindfully to help your digestive track and brain coordinate their activities (takes ~20 minutes for your brain to signal to your stomach that’s it’s full)

Step 3: eat fewer hyper-palatable highly processed foods. These signal the brain’s reward system so we crave them more. (eat less of them & over time you will crave the highly processed foods less and you will feel fuller longer without them)

Step 4: control your food environment. Don’t purchase & bring hyper-palatable foods into your home. You know once you bring them home you (or someone you love) will eat them. Instead: go out for that slice(s) of pizza, ice cream or donut.

Yes, we promote & practice flexible dieting & the 80/20 rule. But just because you CAN does not mean you SHOULD. It’s important for everyone to know their limitations. If the popular trend is taking you down a dangerous path, well then it’s time to change direction.

Only YOU control your future, your health & your happiness.

It’s often the small changes that make the biggest impact. Baby steps. Start with one & work your way through them all.

I know you can do it & regain control of your brain, health & waistline.
