‘ Its hard to stay on a diet when I’m hungry all the time’
‘ I’m eating so much, I’m never going to lose this weight!’
Sounds familiar? Panicking by the second because summer is coming and you still can’t lose the excess weight? Don’t fret. This is probably because you are not reading your hunger cravings the way your body wants you to. You see, our body is pretty resilient and stubborn. Despite it being used in a way it is not supposed to, you body still strives to provide you with the energy you need to get through the day. So it is about time for it to gain some respect from you. Yes, that’s it. Respect your body, and it will return the favour. Insisting on the opposite, and what you will get is a body that is both weak and unsightly to behold because it is not functioning at full capacity.
Hunger cravings, is a sign that your body is deficit in a certain essential nutrient. And when it needs it, it sends signals to your brain to inform you that it needs to get the vital nutrients outside of the body. Here’s an interesting fact. Vitamins was derived from “vitamine,” a compound word coined in 1912 by the Polish biochemist Casimir Funk. The name is from vital and amine, meaning amine of life, because it was suggested in 1912 that the organic micronutrient food factors that prevent beri-beri and perhaps other similar dietary-deficiency diseases might be chemical amines. This proved incorrect for the micronutrient class, and the word was shortened to vitamin.
So where can we get vitamins from? Fruits and veggies of course. ‘But they’re so unappealing, besides, a cupcake looks prettier, and tastes better!’ Okay, lets take a step back from that and have a closer look at them veggies and fruits. Notice something? They seem to resemble parts of the body. Now take it from there. Maybe they have something that part of the body needs. A carrot slice seems to resemble the pupils in your eyes. Bingo! Carrots contains Vitamin A, that protects the surface of they eye,ensuring good vision.
