Nearly all women who have had children encounter this. So does anyone who has lost weight and also the rest of us who may have trashed our skin by alcohol, smoking, junk food, lack of nutrients and many more reasons.
So that probably is about 80% of the population who has this issue!
A new friend in my life was quizzing me about what I eat.
We were exchanging recipes and explaining briefly the why, what and hows of our respective eating habits and at one point I said, “I do eat cheese because I like it and it suits my weight loss goals but I am aware of the gumming up effect it sometimes has on me if I eat it too much. As well as the fact that all dairy food is supposed to cause inflammation in your body, much like grains do. But I eat it anyway.”

Everywhere I read about special teas to help you lose weight, or shakes, or pills or any other fan-dangled thing that is supposed to cut your appetite or curb cravings. I am just wondering why this is necessary?
Why do you need to stop feeling your cravings?

Unfortunately, we’ve all been sucked in (me included, big time,) by the marketers who conveniently leave out the bad bits, when singing the praises of cacao.
So while it may have some benefits, for some people the bad outweighs the good and problems arise. Let’s just say, it’s no Spirulina!
It sounds like a dance doesn’t it? Or at the very least a fad product in the weight loss world of which you should normally steer clear.
