LEVEL UP™ NUTRITION IS A STRATEGIC MONTH BY MONTH PROCESS TO LEVEL UP YOUR NUTRITION.
The topic of Month 10 is FOOD & MOOD:
I want to discuss how the way you eat impacts your neurotransmitters this month. Your neurotransmitters basically create your mood. Here’s how some of the key neurotransmitters that are impacted by how you EAT impact how you feel:
Dopamine: happy, alert, driven, extroverted, confident, creative, decisive, taking action Glutamate: in excess- racing thoughts, anxious, overthinking, worried (goes in excess when there
is poor conversion of glutamate into GABA)
GABA: cool, calm and collected, able to let go of worrisome thoughts, can stay centered amidst stressful situations, calm mind
Serotonin: loving, kind, connected, everything is ok in the world
This plan will help you calculate your own calories & macros to adapt the program to meet your specific needs!
