Any Brain Type can be a junk food eater, for sure, though there are some general tendencies each Brain Type can tend towards. Dominant Right brainers, for instance, do have a greater tendency towards addictions (especially when coupled with aberrant genes. There is one Right brainer who is not only overweight, but is literally killing himself with soft drinks and cigarettes. Most of us know o John Daly (#5 FEIR), the pro golfer who made a name for himself by hitting the long ball back in the 90s. Daly reportedly smokes some 40 cigarettes a day, and chugs down about 10-12 Diet Cokes in the same period of time. He used to drink 26-28 cans a day, that is, until he had his lap-band surgery. “The band won’t allow me to drink as many,” says Daly. “If I don’t have ice, I can’t drink it. I can’t have it straight because of the carbonation. I have to drink it slowly and not out of a can, I need some ice.”

Wow, you talk about living for the moment!  The only good news is that Daly has been free from alcohol for 6 years. The popular soft drink is sweetened with aspartame, which can cause a myriad of problems, from migraine headaches to Alzhermer’s to brain tumors. That much carbonation alone, too, generally isn’t good for your body (bone health). Of course, smoking cigarettes doesn’t even require our attention for this article.

Daly is addicted, for sure. Sadly, it usually takes a major health scare for someone like him to change his ways. Some folks are born with good genetics and can get away with a lot, while others last only a little awhile until they succumb to disease or some other physical condition. We just hope Daly’s “health scare” is something from which he will be able to recover.
