Breaking Your Food Addictions (Digital Video & PDF)

Are you constantly craving junk food? Does eating that one donut or potato chip open the door to an all night binge on unhealthy foods? Wish you were stronger? Don’t! It’s not about willpower. The solution is all in your brain.
In this provocative video, hosted by NeuroTrition’s Dr. Stephanie Borgland, you’ll learn what makes a food seductive and how eating certain foods can rewire our brain circuits. Understand why just putting down your fork isn’t enough to overcome food addictions. You’ll also leave this talk with more information about dopamine’s role in your body, get the straight dope on sugar and leave with clear strategies to inhibit our all-too-human inclinations to over-eat.
