Sydney, May 31st 2013  ‘Food, Mood and Your Attitude

Back by popular demand – We are SELLING OUT of this workshop around the country and have a waiting list of people interested in Sydney.

Sydney, we’ve heard you! SO here it is!

  • Discover the leading “Good Mood Foods” and how to make easy and delicious meals using them
  • Learn about the four most important mood regulating hormones and the specific nutrients you require to boost them.
  • Learn about the most effective, natural, and safe alternatives to anti-depressants that will have your friends saying “I’ll have what ever they’re having!
  • Are you apt to be irritable, impatient, edgy or angry?
  • Do cry at the drop of a hat, or feel overly sensitive
  • Are you hyperactive, restless, cant slow down or turn your brain off?
  • Do you get dizzy, weak, or head-achy if meals are delayed?

These are just a few common symptoms that arise when specific brain food isn’t being acquired through your diet.  The brain produces and regulates 4 key neurotransmitters that directly effect your mood, how you feel and even what you crave. When your foods aren’t providing the specific nutrients required to produce these neurotransmitters and your lifestyle choices continue to deplete your levels of these neurotransmitters, then how you think and feel are greatly effected and your ability to manage stress, remain emotionally balanced and mentally focused is diminished. The good news is you don’t have to continue to suffer the myriad of symptoms associated with not getting the right nutrients to feed these essential mood regulating hormones. Simply by understanding which foods are rich in the nutrients that your brain needs, you can straight away start to change how you feel.

This is the topic for my second book , and something I’m passionate about. Join us to uplift your mood and your overall health, we’d love to have your company:
