Ready To Power Your Continuing Education?

Learn about why sugar is so addictive, to how to regain control over our eating!

Contains the following Continuing Education modules:

  • Fructose and Fat Storage
  • Influences on Food Choices
  • Low-Carb Dieting and Appetite
  • Sugar Cravings
  • Visual Cues and Taste

Fructose and Fat Storage

If being efficient at converting fructose into body fat is so disadvantageous to our health, then why are we so good at it? Might our frugivorous evolutionary past hold the answers? In this report, we dive into evolutionary genetics to shed light on the possible links between your genes, fructose, and obesity!

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether fructose is making you fat
  • What fructose is and why we’re eating so much of it
  • How our body deals with sugar
  • The impact fructose can have on our weight
  • Whether all sugars are the same

Influences on Food Choices

Who (or what) controls when, what, and how much you eat? Your brain is influenced by a multitude of things when making food choices. We’ll navigate through these influences, be they physiological or environmental, conscious or unconscious, hormonal or neural, visual or olfactory.

In this module you will learn…

  • The top influences on how our brain makes decisions about food
  • Whether we have as much conscious control over our eating as we think
  • The role of food “cues” in overeating
  • Whether we can really blame stress for making us eat things we shouldn’t
  • How food marketing uses sneaky tricks to make us eat more

Low-Carb Dieting and Appetite

Finding ways to reduce hunger is the “holy grail” of weight loss. Low-carb dieters claim to have found out how to diet without inducing hunger, but is this just hearsay, or is there science to back it up?

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether low-carb dieting suppresses appetite
  • The fundamentals of a low-carb ketogenic diet
  • Which key hormones are involved in ketosis and appetite regulation
  • Whether the side-effects of ketogenic dieting outweigh any benefits

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.

  • 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

Visual Cues and Taste

Did you know that sweet food can taste salty when served in a blue bowl? How is that possible? Discover the surprising influence dish colour might have on your sense of taste.

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether plate colour can affect taste perception
  • Why we might associate colour with flavour
  • The role of vision in our sense of taste
  • Whether our perception of taste could be a consequence of evolution
  • The ways in which we can manipulate taste perception to enjoy healthier foods

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.
