The Diet of Common Sense Podcast

Our minds are powerful computers, and yet they say we only use 10% of our brain. The brain uses 20% of the body's energy, and in order to keep it healthy we need to eat more brain superfoods such as omega 3 fatty acids, greeny leaves, avocado, blueberries. Hydration is also important, studies suggests that even mild dehydration can affect our cognitive performance.

Thank you so much for such valuable knowledge. I've spent so much money at the dermatologist. I tried 2 different kinds of pills & two different types of face creams he prescribed. None of it worked. In fact, it worsened my acne. I have tried it all! I have prayed, used Tea Tree oil, Proactive, microdermabrasion, ate more salmon & walnuts, lifted weights, did cardio, slept more, took the hair skin & nail vitamins, & quit all dark sodas. It did nothing. This show has given me a new sense of hope! Thank you so much!

I was born and raised in Kijabe, Kenya, and it was so lovely to hear Jane's story and hear her accent. It brought back so many lovely memories(I lived there for 18 years).

I love that you mention Camu Camu berry again, also heard you talking about it’s vitamin C potential alongside Acerola cherry and Amla berry in a different episode - in my own experience, I’ve used Camu Camu powder to recover from food poisoning and it worked within a half an hour to relieve my digestive upset and nausea symptoms likely because of its positive affect on the micro biome!

I have just found your podcast and I think you may just have saved my life. I've had a year of self neglect after loosing both parents in the last 11 months, eating and drinking WAY to much, not exercising at all. I think an average fitbit step count when not at work was 500 steps and that would be sofa-fridge-sofa-loo-sofa. Your tone of delivery was gentle and informative and so motovational. I was a fit lady, ate well and had a strong body and mind. People would comment how strong and confident I was. This last year has been so tough and I've not done myself any favours. I shall be listening to lots more of your episodes and I KNOW you are both going to help me restore the old me. I've taken measurements and photos, and I'm going to book myself in for a birthday photoshoot (and pay for it) for the end of Sept. My 48th birthday is gonna rock and you will have played a massive part in that, thank you x
