Low carb diets are everywhere, but are they healthy? Your body actually needs carbohydrates, and there are various different types of carbs to choose from. Cassie Bjork joins us to talk about which carbs are good go to’s and which ones you should eat minimally. The key to eating carbs, Cassie says is pairing them with a fat. When you do this, it will help slow the process of the carb getting turned into glucose. Eating carbs alone is why you experience almost a sugar rush and then a crash. Cassie says to always eat your P’s, F’s, and C’s which are your proteins, fats, and carbs. And there are so many different types of carbs that affect your body differently. For example, eating potatoes compared to eating watermelon. These both have such different properties and Cassie tells you how they are different and when to eat them.
We are so excited to have Maria Johnson from the Brain Performance Institute joining us. She specializes in helping kids with social development. The latest research uses Virtual Reality technology to help kids learn how to deal with basic social situations. She tells us why kids are struggling to build these skills and how virtual reality is being used. It is sad to think that children and teens are having trouble dealing with day-to-day social interaction, but good to know there is a solution for help. If you have a child you think may benefit from this type of training, you can reach out to the Brain Performance Institute for a FREE consultation.
