The Model Health Show

It’s no secret that food-based illnesses have become deeply ingrained in our culture. From the obesity epidemic to an uptick in food addiction, it’s clear that somewhere along the way we’ve lost touch with how to form healthy relationships with food.

Unlike many other health problems, finding a solution to these issues isn’t clear. Traditional medical solutions aren’t applicable due to food’s basic function—we need it to survive. Food is something we all have to interact with on a regular basis.

Mark Schatzker has extensively studied and written about the link between food and behavior, including how traditional knowledge has overlooked an important piece of the puzzle—flavor. On today’s show, he’s sharing the fascinating science behind the production of flavor, and how modern food is designed to get us hooked. We’ll talk about how to hack the system, and how you can get back to your roots in order to find balance between flavorful foods and nutrition.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • How our food’s nutritional quality has become more diluted over time.
  • Theintuitiveeating habitsof cattle (and how it relates to humans!)
  • How production of crops like corn has changed over the last few decades.
  • The incredible link between flavor and nutrition.
  • What reverse evolution is, and how it works on both humans and plants.

  • The definition of retronasal olfaction and how it affects our taste.
  • Why your taste seems to change when you have a cold.
  • What we can learn from babies’ intuitive senses.

Have you ever reacted poorly based on raw emotions, and then later regretted it? Or have you ever impulsively eaten something that didn’t align with your goals—based on emotion alone?

Emotional intelligence is our ability to identify, evaluate, control, and express our emotions. It allows us to recognize and understand our own feelings, as well as the emotions of others. Having a high emotional intelligence allows us to align our behaviors with our values by understanding the critical piece that emotions play in decision-making.

  • What emotional intelligenceactually is.
  • Four main components of emotional intelligence, and how they work.
  • Which part of the brain functions as the emotional center.

  • Why reading fiction can help develop empathy.
  • What activities you can engage in to sharpen your cognitive control.
