Science is beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.

In this curriculum, Dr. Caroline Leaf helps participants avoid fads and focus on their unique nutritional needs and thought patterns in order to positively impact their own health through right thinking. Anyone who is tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, who struggles with emotional eating, or who simply isn't satisfied with their level of health will find in this program the key to discovering how they can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit. Perfect for small groups who want something a little different.
