Craving Control and Taste Manipulation

Power your knowledge with continuing education. Taught by scientists and PhDs.

  • How easy is it to trick your taste?
  • Are your food preferences genetic?
  • How does taste make us overeat?

Ready To Power Your Continuing Education?

Learn about how taste may make us overeat, to whether it’s possible to manipulate our taste to enjoy foods we dislike!

Contains the following Continuing Education modules:

  • Manipulating Taste Perception
  • Taste Perception and Overeating
  • Genetics of Food Preferences

Manipulating Taste Perception

Do we “taste” sound? Or eat with our eyes? How much of the flavours we feel are real? In this report, we explore ground-breaking experiments on the illusion of food flavours. This way, you can use a few tricks to your advantage!

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether it’s possible to trick our taste to enjoy foods we dislike
  • The fundamentals of taste perception
  • Which roles our five senses play in taste perception
  • Whether smell might be more important than taste when it comes to detecting flavours

Genetics of Food Preferences

We all have favourite foods… and those we dislike. But could taste perception be in our genes? Were you born to taste foods differently? Let’s find out if your tastes for much-loved foods (or least-wanted ones) were pre-determined by your DNA!

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether genetics could explain our individual food preferences
  • Why some of us prefer sweet foods over savoury foods
  • What carrying the “sweet tooth” gene might mean for you
  • Whether it’s possible to override our genes and train ourselves to like foods we find unpleasant

Taste Perception and Overeating

When you eat high-calorie foods, you feel a sense of satisfaction. But do some people get more pleasure from eating than others? Could this cause overeating and weight gain?

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether taste perception is making us overeat
  • If food enjoyment is the same for everyone
  • Which taste-reward mechanisms may explain someone’s tendency to gorge more than others
  • Whether food can make us euphoric, and if so, how this could be contributing to our gluttony and overeating
  • Why some of us have a different reward response to food, and whether this might be making us eat more

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.

Enjoy a Unique Learning Experience.

No more internet hangovers. A smooth experience with everything in one place.
