WHAT IS CELLULITE?
For a more permanent cellulite reduction try regular exercise (including resistance training to tone muscle), weight loss (if you are overweight), drinking 8 glasses of water a day and eating healthily (to avoid the build up of toxins). No one can promise total cellulite removal but you can reduce it (if you want to…) I find mine kinda beautiful 🙂
NEW STUDY FINDS MSG IN FOOD MAKES US FAT & IT’S BEEN — — USED TO MAKE LAB RATS FAT FOR DECADES!
YOU DAMAGE YOURSELF WHEN YOU CAN’T TAKE A COMPLIMENT…
Ever wondered why (processed) fatty foods can be so addictive and hard to say no to?! Why you can’t just have one piece of fried chicken or just one French fry…? [This post is back by special request!]
According to researchers at University of California, Irvine, these processed fats cause a reaction in the body that makes these foods almost irresistible!
When rats eat a high fat diet, cells in their intestines produce endocannabinoids – similar to THC the particle in cannabis that gives users their high. Endocannabinoids tell your brain when it’s time to eat and when they are active whether you’re a lab rat or a human being you will have a raging appetite… Otherwise known as the munchies!
Fats are essential for the proper functioning of the human body and they are relatively hard to come by in nature so it’s not surprising that (from an evolutionary point of view) we humans are built to crave fats! This evolutionary failsafe is totally unnecessary, of course, in the modern world because today fats of all sorts are extremely available and this addiction to fatty foods leads to weight gain, hypertension and diabetes, just to name a few.
So the next time you crave that fatty culinary delight just remember that the high you feel is not imaginary!
