Your Body Wants Nutrients, Not Calories

This Sparked Me!

Dr. Oz said this on one of his shows. He explained that the body will crave food, even if it is not officially "hungry." If you eat healthy, nutrient-rich foods, you will satisfy your body, and it will not crave high calorie, empty foods. It really hit a cord with me.

    Read some interesting info on food addiction vs. eating addiction. It may be that I don't crave food so much, especially particular ones as I crave the pleasure/ satisfaction I get from eating

    That's what I have found. By focusing on covering my nutrition bases, I am never hungry.
