"Why can't I stick with my healthy eating plan day in and day out? I knew that stopping for ice cream was not in my best interest but I did it anyway. Tomorrow I will get back on track." Most people who are trying to improve their diets get stuck somehow. They get to a point where their brain says, "I don't care." We think that we are in total control of our actions and have just failed. But is it the brain that is directing our behaviors, and can we change the brain? The answer to both of these questions is yes. In this one hour talk by Registered Dietitian Betsy Thurston you will learn some tools to start the process of changing our brains so that you can stick with a healthy eating plan. You will also get a review of the basics of good nutrition for weight loss and disease prevention.
