Binging on ice cream and carbs from time to time comes with the dating territory (especially in your teenage years) … right?

"Food is the ultimate medicine," he stresses -- as long as it’s the RIGHT food!
So, instead of turning to sugar and carbs, the doc suggests what he’s dubbed his Mood-Elevating Chicken Tenders, which contain Omega-3 fats.
“The beauty of Omega-3 fats is they make the brain cells flexible,” he explains. “When your brain cells are flexible, they can adapt [and] react more effectively.”
