“Plenty of things are out of your control, yet you actually have a lot of control over your health, happiness and life – and it all starts with your mouth. What you put in it, and the words that come out of it, determine your destiny. Shitty nutrition and verbal self-abuse will wear you out. Change the menu, rewrite the recipes and say yes to yourself.” – Kris Carr

Stress, anger, joy, frustration or boredom are some of the emotions that may trigger a food craving. In order to manage energy levels effectively and/or lose weight, it is important to distinguish between hunger and cravings. It is not only negative feelings that can have this effect.

A suggestion to help you think twice before eating when you are not really hungry is to ask yourself: “Am I really hungry or do I just want to change the way I feel?”
Meat Eating: Not What It Used to Be, Not What It Could Be “Regardless of where you stand on the many issues of eating meat (note the author of this article is vegan)—the meat you’re eating now is not what it once was or what marketers who use words like “natural” or “farm-raised” and pastoral images of happy hens or talking cows would have you believe it is. Nor is it what it could be—and that’s a big could, because a whole lot is riding on our food habits. You know, those things we do every day that we hate having to change? Well, change is a good thing. It keeps our brains healthy (it’s even linked to reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s), it can be exciting, and in this case, it’s necessary. Because meat as it stands today is the most harmful factor in the degradation of our environment, and our health.”
