Would you say that you eat differently to how you did ten years ago?

One of the biggest changes we've seen in the last decade is in the food industry. In the 90s two cups of coffee with sweeteners could have passed for breakfast - these days people are far more aware of the importance of good nutrition.  
The link between food and weight has been in our awareness for a long time but what is also becoming an important part of the picture is the link between food and mood. With anxiety and depression now so common, research into how our diet affects our emotions is being given more importance.

In this issue Hoffman graduate, author and cell biologist Joan Borysenko discusses how research is shedding new light on the link between diet and epigenetics. Is depression passed down the generations, for example? Her new book The PlantPlus Diet Solution: Personalized Nutrition for Life gives some answers and suggests solutions - and Joan explains how Hoffman fits in. 
If you'd like to see how the Process can help with changing unhelpful patterns and emotional responses you could try our Introduction Day on Saturday October 18 or come to our Information Evening on Tuesday October 7 in Dublin or Tuesday October 21 in London. 
If you're a Hoffman graduate we also have a Graduate Support Call - Wednesday October 22 on the theme of Refresh Your Relationships.
Wishing you a healthy, happy month

Joan Borysenko 
Joan Borysenko - author of The PlantPlus Diet Solution: Personalized Nutrition for Life
A few years ago Hoffman graduate Joan Borysenko and her husband went on a low fat vegan diet to combat health problems only to find their symptoms worsened. As a cell biologist, Joan's curiosity was piqued - how could the best advice make things worse? She spent the next 3 years reviewing the latest literature on nutrition and recent discoveries in epigenetics. (Simply put, epigenetics studies the factors which influence whether we activate our genetic tendencies - if your family is historically overweight, for example, does this mean that you will be too?). 

'According to a new survey conducted by the American Psychological Association, the millennial generation is the most depressed and anxious current living generation and it's the one which eats the most processed food....What we pass on down our family line is not only a pattern of anxiety for example, but a way of eating that supports that state......

There is an entire chapter in the book dedicated to helping you develop this key skill of noticing your behaviour patterns - something which is also a foundation stone of the Hoffman Process. The Process boosts self-respect and encourages greater self-care so improving your nutrition tends to move higher up your list of priorities by the end of the course.'

Support Call - Refresh your Relationships                                                              Back to Top

This month's Support Call - Wednesday 22 October is Refresh your Relationships and is led by Supervising Hoffman Teacher, Jeremy Kynaston - 7.30pm - 8.45pm.


Is your relationship feeling a bit stuck, a little stale? Does it feel as if the spark has dimmed or even gone out? Are you reacting to and/or blaming your partner when things aren't going smoothly? Do you want to do something about what's missing, or has changed between you, but you don't know where to start?


These calls are ideal when you finish your post Process Support Groups and want to reconnect to the Process tools. We also welcome Hoffman graduates who've been 'out of the loop' and want a fresh perspective. In short - if you've done the Process - wherever you live - this one's for you..!
