Video shows food for the body and the brain

Vegetables for a healthy mind

For 25 years Charlotte Erlanson-Albertsson at Lund University in Sweden has conducted research on appetite control, the energy balance of the body, and how we should eat to stay healthy and happy – both our bodies and our brains. Here’s her dietary advice captured in one compelling film.

We eat too much, too often, and more sugar, salt and fat than we should. Our bodies don’t like it. They become stressed”, says Charlotte Erlanson-Albertsson, professor in medical and physiological chemistry.

In this film you will join Charlotte when she does her grocery shopping and talks about

  • why we should eat “three colours of vegetables” each day
  • why we are to be cautious of too much red meat
  • good proteins and important fat in fish
  • that the body needs to help counting the number of slices of bread
  • how thylakoids in green leaves affect hormones that regulate our feeling of satisfaction and reduce the need for sweets
  • why tea and coffee are good for your health and
  • why we should embrace the way the French people view and eat food
