Hi Guys,

Today I am talking about unhealthy food cravings and how to stop them. Most of us are partial to a sweet tooth or junk food and drinks craving but there is a scientific reason behind it.

As a survival mechanism built in through evolution, our bodies have developed so that we are drawn to fattier foods. When the body is hungry, we will crave the foods that will provide us with a fuller feeling. Cravings on the other hand, are linked to the brains reward system.

But I began to notice that the more positive I trained my mind to be, the more positive things began to occur in my life. read more
