Feed your brain and body!

Even a few, minor changes to your diet can strengthen your brain and “re-wire” your hunger to diminish cravings. This is due to how most processed foods can be “triggers”– so learn to avoid them!

It’s actually simple: “Good” foods are those that you buy by the pound, “bad” are found among those that are processed and packaged.

Stay stopped by selecting healthier foods.

Healthier eating translates into fewer cravings, easier weight management, a sense of well-being, and overall better health!

Easy nutrition basics

  • Never shop for food when hungry
  • Never skip a meal
  • Always have healthy snacks available and with you (carrots, nuts, cheese, yogurt, etc.)
