Delia McCabe is a researcher, author and speaker and an enthusiastic spokeswoman for enhancing mental wellbeing through specific lifestyle choices. She is an international and national Keynote speaker in the field of Nutritional Neuroscience, one of few to explore this speciality. Most recently she has presented at the Neuroscience for Leaders Summit in Beijing.
She holds a Masters in Psychology and is currently completing her PHD through the faculty of health and medical sciences at Adelaide University, examining the relationship between female stress and specific nutrients. Her recent editorial and published paper in pubmed is a systematic review of the effectiveness of specific nutrients as dietary supplements for managing stress in women.
Delia is a regularly sought after media commentator, appearing on radio, TV and in print media with regards to nutrition, brain health and female stress. She writes about nutrition and brain health on mental health blogs such as Welldoing.org and her most recent video interview on maximising your brain health can be viewed here. Delia is also working on a research project for Australian PTSD veterans to help reintegrate veterans suffering from the neurological effects of combat.
Her first book “Feed Your Brain: 7 Steps to a Lighter Brighter You!'”, clearly articulates the complex science behind food and the brain, as well as the roles that stress, sex, exercise and sleep play in cognitive wellbeing. Her second book, “Feed Your Brain - the Cookbook”, takes that brain science into your kitchen for delicious, even decadent meals. Delia’s work on brain health empowers you to live a ‘Lighter and Brighter Life’ .
Delia’s presentations separate myth from fact using an evidence-based approach to optimising mental wellbeing through lifestyle choices, with a foundational focus on applying the neuroscience of nutrition. In a world of chronic stress where most people’s brains are struggling to maintain equilibrium and manage overwhelm, Delia’s approach empowers people to take action and her focussed, brain-optimisation topics include:
