Emotional Eating

Emotional Eating is when you’re feeling depressed, angry, anxious, happy, and decide to eat through their emotions. Some people feel inadequate and say “screw it” and snack until they feel better. There are ways to eat through your emotions with our finishing a whole bag of pretzels, so don’t worry. Your brain responds similarly to cocaine as it does sugar! Dopamine is released when we consume sugar, and we created a neuro super pathway. Reward circuitry, the cascade of neurotransmission in the brain that leads to the release of dopamine, is kicked off by any pleasurable experience. When you drink alcohol, you get led to more decadent treats and sweets, and before you know it, you’ve eating half a platter!

You can overcome emotional eating! You must become aware, and you must be aware of your triggers. People, places, and things can all be triggers for you to eat the wrong foods! Come prepared when it comes to holiday eating. Bring the healthy dish, and have a plan for your own nutrition.


Nootropics are drugs, supplements, and other substances that may improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation, in healthy individuals. Some nootropics can be stimulants, so be sure to know which nootropic you are taking at what time to make sure to not inhibit sleep! Shawn’s list of top ten nootropic ingredients include ALCAR, Alpha GPC, Rhodiola, Ashwagandha, Lion’s Mane, B12, TeaCrine, Dynamine, C8 MCTs, and R-BHB. Bernadette’s favorite is rhodiola! Click here to purchase Thorne Research’s rhodiola product! We love Thorne!

Shawn says that many products that include B12 actually have a cheap form of B12 that contains cyanide! These small doses won’t kill you, but they will basically do nothing for your heath. Invest in a great B12 supplement that is already activated and great for your overall health and energy!
