5 Signs You’re a Guilty Overeater
I remember how the holidays used to go down. My mind carefully calculating whether or not I should have the chocolate brownie at the party. I vividly recall the guilt I would feel when I did choose to eat them.
And eat them. And eat them.
Because the eating usually didn’t stop with the initial brownie, it often continued as the guilt ate at me. So when I read about a research study that showed those who felt guilty after eating chocolate cake gained more weight, it didn’t surprise me.
Researchers from the University of Canterbury asked 300 women, aged 18 to 86, about their attitudes about food and weight loss goals. The women who said eating chocolate cake would make them feel guilty (27%) gained significantly more weight over the next 18 months than the women who saw a chocolate treat as a celebration.
Health Benefits of Green Tea
A cup of green tea is a good way to start your day.
"It's the healthiest thing I can think of to drink," says Christopher Ochner, PhD. He is a research scientist in nutrition at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "Green tea is beyond a super food."
In the past 20 years, thousands of studies have shown green tea’s benefits.
Fries or fruit? Ribeye or tuna steak? Soda or water?
Every time you decide what to eat, you either increase or decrease your chance of having a heart attack or stroke.
Let that inspire you to choose triglyceride-friendly meals.
