My friend, Integrative Nutrition Coach, Erin Kerry and I have a candid conversation about what 1500 calories a day really does to your brain and body. Did you know that 1500 calories a day can put your brain and your body into survival mode? The concept of the 1500 (or 1200) calorie a diet has been a popular dieting method for decades–but more and more nutritionists, dietitians, and others are exposing the truth that most of us need more than that for healthy brain function.

Not getting enough calories each day can affect your energy levels, your brain function, and other systems of your body (even your reproductive system!). Listen to today’s conversation and learn the truth about 1500 calories a day.
