A natural connection. by Barbara Reed Stitt, Ph. D. 220 pages, paperback. Can what people eat really affect the way they behave? The evidence says yes! In this book, Barbara Reed Stitt, a former chief Probation Officer and creator of a nutritional program which has helped thousands to lead healthy and productive lives, shows the link between food and behavior. Dr. Stitt is one of the founders of Natural Ovens, providing baked whole grains, the way nature intended to a needy public.

The connection between food and behavior is so basic that it is being overlooked by parents, the school system, counselors and most of the medical professionals. Ask any hyperactive child, depressed, angry teenager, violent adult or criminal what they eat and you'll find they "live" on junk food, sweetened boxed cereals, candy, carbonated drinks, potato chips, and fast foods. Junk food abuses the mind, undernourishes the body and distorts the behavior.

Food & Behavior is a book for people in trouble with their health and behavior and for all of you who don't want members of your family to get in trouble. Barbara's message is both enlightening and encouraging.

Barbara Reed Stitt worked with the a Municipal Court as a probation officer in Ohio for 20 years as Chief Probation Officer for 12 of these years. The relationship of diet and behavior was carefully studied. Over and over it became apparent that when the diet improved the behavior improved, the attitude improved, personal appearance and self esteem improved! Barbara's years of experience with correcting behavior by correcting the diet led her to seek higher education in nutrition. Her thesis on The Biochemistry of Crime and dissertation on Healing the Delinquent Mind helped earn a Ph.D. in Nutrition from Donsbach University, now The International University for Nutritional Education.
