Happy 2018!

Oh, the new year and resolutions. The most common resolutions are eating healthier, exercising and losing weight. The issue with such broad statement is there is no clear path how to attain these goals.

Start with one or two small concepts for a few weeks until they become habit and move on to the next few small changes.

What I will be focusing on for the month of January is no alcohol or grains of any kind. Plus, I will exercise daily, even if only for a walk.

By having small, easy to apply goals, you can get your self back on track.

So make a list of small changes and start with one or two.

Addiction: Sugar vs Cocaine

Research has identified a neural circuit that selectively controls compulsive sugar consumption, without preventing feeding necessary for survival, providing a potential target for therapeutic interventions for compulsive-overeating disorder.
 
This scientific data also suggests that for impulsive people, sugar may be no less addictive than other VTA-affecting substances, such as cocaine.
 
*Now in layman terms.....sugar STIMULATES the same part of the brain as cocaine or any other stimulant, causing cravings and addiction for the most part. Just remember you can get rid of sugar cravings! If you are struggling after the holidays, I am offering a 10% discount on any of my services for the month of January. Just mention this new year's special for your discount.

Cranberries

Tis the season for cranberries and all of their health benefits. Cranberries help with urinary tract health, lowering blood pressure, prevention of some cancers and improved immune function.
It is easy to find them in any store this time of year, but can be difficult to find once the holiday season is over. Each year I buy extra bags of cranberries and put them directly in the freezer so I can enjoy them through out the year.
