SHOW NOTES: [3:19] Sweets, comfort food, feel-good foods … they trigger the brain’s rewards system, just like drugs and alcohol (though to a lesser extent). [5:57] So many people in early recovery struggle with their energy, which is linked to their nutrition. [9:32] Fast food myth: Cheap and easy? Not really. [11:20] A healthy relationship with food can keep you from relapsing. [13:00] What is malnutrition? [18:30] What is intuitive eating? [27:10] Attitudes and beliefs around food. For example, not making dessert a “prize.” [32:30] Try this shopping method at the grocery store … [34:00] Tweak your meals with healthier alternatives or smaller portions. [39:05] Diets, supplements, and multivitamins. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio ecards@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
