Imagine a world where people whistle joyfully while walking down the street. Nutritional psychotherapist Julia Ross remembers those days and is aiming to bring them back with the contrarian information in her books “The Diet Cure” and “The Mood Cure”. In this show, we’ll learn about the connection between mood disorders, cravings, overweight and protein. We’ll also learn the real reasons why deficiencies in any of the 5 brain chemicals you need to be happy result in cravings and compulsive eating. Don't miss this follow-up up conversation with Julia Ross. We discuss what a protein really is, how the body reacts to the sudden intake of 2100 calories, and why the internet is an unreliable source of information unless you know what to look for.
