“I Conquer Food Cravings By…” 


“The One Healthy Routine That Changed My Life Is…”

woman thinking

Obesity is an epidemic in America, and for the first time ever over 1/3 of adults in our country are obese. This isn’t just a sickness of our bodies, but our minds as well. In fact, Buddha once said, “craving and desire are the cause of all unhappiness.”

So, forget about magical weight loss pills, commercial diet plans, or drinks, let’s talk about cravings. Cravings are often the result of a bigger underlying issue, and can result from the misguided belief that physical objects or food will make us happy. Cravings are a sickness in our culture, and result in much more than just a “weight” problem.

So, how do you subdue your cravings and find balance in your life? 

Do you have a healthy lifestyle tip that our readers can incorporate into their daily routine?

Let us know, and you might just inspire others to live a happier, healthier life! (and lose a few pounds in the process?)
