Ready To Power Your Continuing Education?

Learn about whether what you eat can really affect your intelligence, to how we’ve evolved to crave sugary foods!

Contains the following Continuing Education modules:

  • Nutrition and Brain Performance
  • Brain and Food Decisions
  • Ketosis and Brain Performance
  • Brain and Gut Microbiome
  • Sugar Cravings

Nutrition and Brain Performance

We often hear the term “brain foods”, but can our diet really makes us smarter? We dive into the scientific research behind the nutrients that are said to make us more intelligent, and see if there’s any truth to these claims.

In this module you will learn…

  • The effect of low-carb diets on appetite
  • Whether fructose is making us fat
  • If plate colour can help you eat healthier
  • Why sugar is so hard to resist
  • What influences our food choices

Brain and Food Decisions

To eat, or not to eat? And then, what or how much? These questions occupy your brain more often than you think. We delve into the neuroscience of healthy (or not so healthy) food choices… and what you can do about them.

In this module you will learn…

  • How our brain makes decisions about food
  • Who (or what) is to blame for our poor food choices
  • Whether our subconscious could be sabotaging our best efforts
  • How we might be able to convince our brains to make better decisions

Ketosis and Brain Performance

The speed and sharpness of your neural circuitry is highly dependent on your blood’s glucose supply. But, with so many of us trying to cut out carbs, might our intellectual performance, our focus, and our brain-processing speed suffer as a result?

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether our brain can perform without carbs, or if it always needs some glucose to function
  • The fundamentals of ketogenesis and ketosis
  • The truth behind ketones, the ketogenic diet, and cognitive performance
  • Who may benefit from going on a ketogenic diet, and who may want to avoid it

Brain and Gut Microbiome

In this module you will learn about the bacteria that live in your gut, and the surprising ways in which they impact your life. But is our microbiome genetically predetermined, or can we make changes for the better?

In this module you will learn…

  • How our brain and gut are connected
  • What the trillions of bacteria in our gut are really up to
  • The fundamentals of the gut microbiome, and whether it can really change our mood and behaviour
  • If stress can impact our gut
  • Whether taking probiotics might elevate our mood

Sugar Cravings

Why is sugar so addictive? To answer this, we’re going to dive into the science of how your brain responds to sugar.

In this module you will learn…

  • Why sugar is so hard to resist
  • What neuroscience can tell us about sugar cravings
  • Whether we’ve evolved to crave sugary foods
  • How brain reward centres are involved in our sweet addiction

Good Science Beats Junk Science.
(or... Why You'll Want To Study With Us Scientists)

When most people consume junk articles and bad science, our learners want the truth.

Fortunately, as scientists in this domain, we're here to filter out the fads.

We have a very strict research and review process. For example, when we touch on a controversial topic, citing a single piece of research can be confusing. That's why, in the absence of consensus, we compile studies to show you both sides.

The findings are thoroughly investigated and based on studies vetted for scientific integrity, which have a higher probability of being accurate.

This way, we avoid bad science and deliver proven research to you.

Get Smarter. Sound Smarter.

Maybe you navigated thousands of health and nutrition websites. You found contradictions, not answers. So what is true? And what isn't?

Maybe you found some self-declared "evidence-based" blog, to later realise they are pseudo-scientific... or worse: fear-mongers.

The problem is, when you repeat what you read in there, you risk sounding incoherent, or may end up hysterically defending points you barely understand yourself...

So, how can you get the credibility you want?

In this continuing education program, we'll not only teach you proven science-based concepts, but show you the context and what it all means in practical terms.

This way, when you talk to others, you'll be spreading reliable information and earning the respect that you deserve.

Reviews

One of the main things I've learned is how complex & individual one's weight loss journey can be, taking into account all the different personality types.

Maxine Chutter, business owner Blissfully Nutritious, Bristol (UK)

Understanding personality types and how to communicate and work with the differences is very important in successful weight loss.

Trudi Franzel, Richmond Hill, Georgia (US)

I learnt so much about the psychology of individuals and how best they can lose weight. I was most interested in the personality types. This can be a very useful tool in health coaching these individuals.

Rosemary King, Nurse Practitioner, Green Valley, Arizona (US)

Loved the module of psychology of dieting, especially diet personality types.

Catherine Durin, Cambridge Weight Plan Independent Consultant, Folkestone (UK)

The extent to which psychology is involved in the weight loss process is incredible! The personality type unit was incredibly useful to me.
