A few weeks ago I attended a seminar for health care professionals entitled Food Addiction, Obesity and Diabetes. This was such a weighty and intense seminar that it has taken me quite a bit of time to digest the information.
Since then I’ve been focusing on breaking it down to bite size pieces of information we can actually apply to our lives. I’ll be honest, this kind of information can be really dull. It takes about brain chemicals, homeostasis, and lots of biology and psychology that is interesting and small doses. So in order to provide this info in a palatable and somewhat fun approach, I’ve decided it’s best to break this up in to several postings on the website. I’ve broken the information down into 5 different parts.
Honestly I could have created way more than 5 parts, but I don’t want to start off too strong. The five parts include the following: number one major systems that influence food intake. number 2, the hormone that can take out all other hormones. number 3, cognition. how to wire our brains to have control over emotions. number 4 gut feelings, the second brain. finally number 5 is in my opinion the most meaty of the sections- the pleasure reward system. it’s really the heart of the matter.
My question to you is in what method do you feel this somewhat dry but really interesting material should be delivered to you. I can write blogs in sections where you can read through it at your own pace or I can create more videos such as this one speaking the information rather than writing. I know not everyone will feel the same way, but I’d love to hear from you rather than make that decision on my own. Each segment will be posted once each week, so this is a 5 week series when all is said and done. My goal is to help you know how to take this information and apply it to your life. The first step is knowledge, the next step is application. Thanks for following and excited to hear from you.
