Brain Bulletin #105 - This Brain Food Leads to Weight Loss

in Brain Bulletin

The food we eat today can improve our brain health for years to come.

Every bite we take matters. A lot.

"You can make decisions today that will give you more energy tomorrow. The right choices over time will greatly improve your odds of a long and healthy life." ~ Tom Rath 


I've been eating a lot more cantaloupe this summer.

Here's why: Cantaloupe is a brain food, and a large cantaloupe contains just 232 calories. And, it's delicious and easy to prepare.

Cantaloupe is a good source of omega-3s for your brain, especially if the seeds are kept in the melon.

Consider these benefits as well:

  • Protects your skin against toxins and aging.
  • Reduces symptoms of stress and anxiety.
  • Reduces inflammation.
  • Prevents arthritis. 
  • Improves kidney health.
  • Maintains healthy eyes.
  • Boosts immunity.
  • May prevent cancer.
  • Improves insulin metabolism

Make cantaloupe a regular snack and your brain and body will thank you for years to come. If you want to make it even better add this "brain spice" :

Remember, when our good decisions outweigh our bad decisions we boost our chances of a long, healthy, energetic life.

My favourite book this month was "The Ripple Effect - Sleep Better, Eat Better, Move Better, Think Better" by Greg Well. Inspiring and practical!

It's been a great summer of grand-kids, cycling, tennis, reading, eating cantaloupe, and enjoying the Pacific Northwest.   

I was also honoured to be the keynote speaker at conferences in Vancouver, and St. Louis, as well as numerous other presentations on the brain and leadership, learning, and health & wellness. When I was in St. Louis I even got to attend a Cardinals game with my great friend and colleague Ed. I always feel smarter after I spend time with Ed.
