Know why you have Food Cravings

1. You're not hungry - You're Thirsty!

Yes, thats the reason.
When you feel thirsty, it  is already a long-awaiting scream for energy.
Your dry mouth and the feeling of being parched would be the sign of thirst where your brain tells you to eat something sweet or salty – for the fast energy that it provides.
  • If you crave for food, sit down and have a big glass of water, then wait 20 minutes because that is how long your body needs to tell you for sure whether it is hungry or thirsty.
Consistently keep yourself hydrated with 2 to 2.4 litres of water per day (8-12 glasses) daily. 

2. Protein for Satiety to beat Food Cravings
  • Another way to fight off craving is to have protein like a handful of almonds or cacao nibbles. Cacao is high in protein and iron, and it has more zinc and Vitamin C too. The high levels of chromium in cacao reduces sugar cravingsThe crunchiness and jaw movements in chomping it down  tricks your brain into thinking it is having a fulfilling meal.
  • Norwegian Salmon with its rich omega 3 helps in weight management by controlling  ghrelin and leptin, the hormones of satiety and hunger. I eat mine at least 3 times per week. 
Yours in health and happiness,

The Truth about Norwegian Salmon

I was asked the other day - how safe is Norwegian salmon for consumption?  Farmed salmon  against wild salmon? The Truth About Norwegian Farm-Raised Salmon
Here's the facts about farm-raised salmon. Do you know that Norway is the second-largest exporter of seafood? Thus it is not only extremely important  for Norway to  safeguard its environment and fish stocks for its economy - the future and sustainability - it is their priority.  The Norwegian aquaculture industry has set the standard for high-quality and safe farmed salmon.
Looking at the quality of the fish stock of Norwegian Salmon: First year of their life, norwegian salmon spends in the safety of a hatchery tank on land until they are large and strong enough for life at sea.  Maximum freedom to grow and no overcrowding -Checked! The salmon are thereafter carefully transferred to spacious, protected ocean pens that allow maximum freedom for growth. The Norwegian law requires that salmon make up less than 2.5% of an aquacultur…
Pooot...! Eeeew! And the smell is overwhelming!

What is stinky and never fails to get the giggles and sometimes the blame?  Whether you blame it on a stranger or your friend within your vicinity, farting (passing gas through your anus) is a normal bodily function.  But, is it possible to fart too often?  Does your daily farts tell you something? 
What is a fart? "Flatulence,” a fart is simply an internal build-up of gas. Farts are made up of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, methane and hydrogen.  Do you know... that farts are silent and odorless?  Only around one percent of farts produce a foul smell. But no cause to be embarrassed. It’s quite natural and, in many cases, healthy!  In fact, a healthy person may pass gas around 15 to 20 times per day. 
Reasons why you fart: 1. You are swallowing airDo you get comments to slow down when you are eating? Then, you are eating too fast.  Do you gulp your food when you are in a hurry?  Do you chew gum?  The above makes you "swallow air&qu…
