Tens of thousands of years ago, the primitive brain was necessary to encourage decisions that benefited the survival of our species. Today, the primitive brain often encourages behaviors that don’t serve our bodies. For example, our primitive brain releases feel-good neurotransmitters when we eat foods high in nutrients, which was beneficial when food was scarce but today food is very abundant. In addition, highly processed foods artificially concentrate these nutrients causing an increased release of feel-good neurotransmitters and making foods addictive. During the podcast, Dr. Vaughn introduces the primitive brain as a basic concept in preparation for further discussions on the addictive properties of processed foods.

If you’re interested in losing weight and managing common weight-related ailments, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, when you eat may be as important as what you eat. Tens of thousands of years ago, food wasn’t as abundant. Consequently, the human animal would enjoy large feasts followed by periods of famine. The reason humans didn’t die off as a species is because our bodies evolved processes to endure long periods of not eating by using insulin to store energy. In this podcast, I discuss the role of insulin and why eating all day long is detrimental to your health.
Biology may encourage and reward you for eating poorly. Carbohydrates, sugar and processed foods stimulate feel good hormones, such as dopamine. This podcast will discuss the effects of these foods on the brain and body, and why you should avoid them.
