When I was 14 my mom went back to work. Since she was working in a department store, and sometimes working evenings I began to cook meals sometimes. My mom did not love to share her kitchen, so I had not done much cooking before that ( Though I think it is better to teach kids cooking early, I can understand that; she had five kids, and not a large amount of money so she worked extremely hard and kids can make a lot of mess in the kitchen.

We've all been there before: dieting and exercising hard for months, dropping 98% of that excess visceral fat, but then... WE GET STUCK?! Impossible! You've been getting 6-8 hours of sleep more often than not, have eaten well a vast majority of the time and continue pushing your threshold in the gym. What gives?

"I eat HEALTHY."Translation: I am mindful and intentional about what I eat.  I eat well enough to get by.  I eat better than some and better than I used to.  I even eat some fruits and vegetables.  Occasionally, I may have alcohol, processed or "white" foods, and desserts. "I eat first to get my PRIMARY nutrition."

 It’s Sunday morning, and typically on Sundays I do all my grocery shopping for the week and plan my meals out. That way I can stay focused on my fitness goals and save a little money as well. During my grocery shopping adventure I couldn’t help but notice all the people that were walking up and down the aisles trying to figure out what healthy foods to buy while attempting to read the nutrition facts some of which I still have a hard time reading.

When you see your favorite food and/or desert, stop and think about what your first mind thoughts are.  Are they a feeling of how good the food tastes?  Do you think about taking that first bite?  Usually, there is a feeling associated with those thoughts.  It's a deep feeling we don't really pay attention to individually.  Sometimes just the taste of a sweet treat makes us feel soothed.

 Have you ever wondered why we have food cravings and why people battle with making good food choices?  Well researchers have discovered a critical link between the unhealthy connection between food and addiction- Dopamine.   Dopamine is the neurotransmitter associated with reward and pleasure.  Cocaine, heroin, and sugar all stimulate the dopamine transmitter that triggers cravings.    When we are about to eat 90% of the dopamine neurons in the Ventral Tegemental Area of the brain are stimulated.   The VTA transmitters branch out to other p
