Nutrition for Optimal Brain Performance

Whether you are young or have become aware of the reality of aging, your eating habits have a direct impact on your longevity, your ability to avoid sick days, as well as how well you are able to concentrate, perform under stress, make smart decisions and maintain high energy and a good mood throughout the workday.

If any of the following are true for you, you will benefit from this half-day workshop:

You experience “brain fog” on a weekly basis

You suffer from mid-day energy slumps and wish you lived in a country where naps were the norm.

You know what’s good and bad for you, but it’s too difficult to change your habits

You are ready to get rid of common headaches.

You have frequent colds, allergies or sinus infections

You would like to take a preventative approach to common illnesses such as Type2 Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Dementia and more


With today’s scientific understanding of the important role of macronutrients (carbs & fats) and micronutrients (vitamins & minerals), combined with behavioural science and the psychology of habits, there are many ways in which we can all enhance our cognitive performance without the need for expensive supplements or excessive caffeine.


Discover the 6 types of hunger and how they impact your ability to focus during different times of the workday

Identify your unique eating patterns and which types of hungers they satisfy

Create a personal plan for how to optimize your intellectual and physical performance

Apply emotional intelligence skills when struck by emotional hungers

Understand the types of nutrients that the brain needs for optimal performance at work, at play and for longevity

Develop essential knowledge that you can then pass on to your colleagues, friends, children, and loved ones

Analyze your eating habits and the pressures that influence your decision-making around food

Discover the link between stress and the brain’s energy requirements so that you can prevent burnout

It’s never too late to give your body and brain what they need to function at their best.
