CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS WITH THESE FOODS.

Do you become a craving crazy. Well, it is not your fault. Actually your hormones cause you to crave food. When your stomach empties a hormone called ghrelin is produced which causes you to be hungry. The secret is to stay full, don’t let the “gremlins” attack.
Here are some foods that fight the hunger feeling:
1. Apples Yes an apple a day helps balance your blood sugar. When your blood sugar drops at 10 am, 2,4,8 and 10 pm you crave a snack. Apples are good source of pectin, a fiber, that gives you a sense of being full, for 1 to 2 hours.
Try eating an apple before each meal with a full glass of clean water. This will cause you to eat a lot less.
2. Fiber Bran either wheat or rice will do the trick
Dissolve 1 to 2 tablespoonfuls of fiber in a large glass of water. This will fill up your stomach. At breakfast it the best time to drink this, or after dinner or before bed.
Fiber also helps you become regular with your bowel movements. Adults only get 50% of the fiber they need in their diets. No wonder constipation is so common.
3. Green Tea. It contains a plant nutrient called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) which increases the hormone CCK
(Cholecystokinin) which is responsible for creating the feeling of being full (satiation). EGCG also stimulates your cells to burn energy, including fat.
4. Red Wine Vinegar When you ferment red wine long enough it becomes red wine vinegar, It is a healthy appetite suppressing addition to any meal. Red wine vinegar also contains Resveratrol that has been determined to protect your heart.
You can add 2 tablespoonfuls mixed with sparkling water or use it as a salad dressing, or just garnish your food with it.
5. Pine Nuts A great source of omega-6 fatty acids in pine nuts, has shown to increase the release of satiety hormones.
The fullness lasts about 30 minutes. They are a great snack on the go.
The real secret of weight loss is to stay full by eating foods that are low in calories or have no calories at all (Fiber) so that you don’t have the cravings “munchies”.

Just because a drug is over the counter (OTC) does not mean it is harmless. Check with your pharmacist if you are taking RX drugs, before adding an OTC one.

FIGHT ZITS WITH FISH

Research published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology showed that people who eat fish at least once a week are 68% less likely to have acne. The reason fish does this is that omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish may suppress inflammation. Once again fish such as wild salmon, tuna, halibut mackerel and sardines are the richest in omega-3.
