Does Will Power Really Stop Food Cravings?
What happens when you have cravings and end up being hungry for more food? When it comes to cravings and the health of your gut, you can tell a lot as to how good your digestion is by the types of cravings you have. I know most of you, at one time or another, have said, "I'm hungry" or "I'm starving", but are cravings good or bad for you? How can you tell?
Here's a tip for you. If you get those 3:00 PM crashes, most of the people associate blood sugar related issues with actual hunger, and there's a huge difference in addressing that. So, if you get those 3:00 PM crashes and you think to yourself, okay, what kind of foods do I really want, and you think about maybe a steak or a potato or an avocado, then generally it's nutritionally based. What that means is that your body's just not getting enough nutrients from the foods, the good foods, that you're eating.

Today I'm going to be talking about hunger. How do you know when you're really hungry or if it's just your mind playing tricks on you. I'm going to give you a fun way to figure that out, but if you're thirsty, generally most instances, you'll pretty much drink whatever is available, Coke, tea, water, kombucha. It's going to quench that thirst, however when it comes to foods, we are so discriminatory and down right picky when it comes to those foods that satisfy our hunger.
Affecting People Around You
Do you think your attitude affects those around you? Is your positivity or negativity affecting those around you. Most people don't realize how contagious your behavior is to those you meet.
Most people have heard the phrase, "You Are What You Eat". But I believe it's much more apropos to say, "You Eat What You Are." What you "spit out" is certainly more important to those people around you than what you put in. ⠀
Your words and your actions based on those words should be what counts, not necessarily that you have good thoughts and ideas about doing them. Look at it this way. I'm sure you know plenty of people who are in the fitness/nutrition/health industry that profess and live a "healthy" life, yet gossip, talk s*^t, are rude, inconsiderate, and selfish. But have you ever taken a step back and thought about those people that may regularly have fast food addictions or a weight problem or struggling with their health, yet bring light and kindness and goodness into your life?⠀
How To Stimulate Bowel Movement
There is a correlation between bowel movements and probiotics. It's often asked do probiotics cause bowel movements? Understanding that there is a physiological reason why when someone consumes probiotics or eats fermented foods why probiotics cause bowel movements.
Today I'm going to be talking about probiotics, and bowel movements. I know, great stuff. But, inevitably, people do ask when they take probiotics, or drink kombucha, or kefir. They end up going to the bathroom, and they want to know the reasons why. They think that it's a laxative, or maybe have questions associated with that, and I'm here to tell you that probiotics are not a laxative. Their main job, their main physiological function is to go in and break up sugars and starches in your body.
