Why do those extra pounds cling to our bodies? Almost everyone I know can tell you how hard it is to lose even a few of those unwanted pounds. Everyone is also familiar with carbohydrates and many of us are used to eating them… to feel full. I’d be hungry all day if I didn’t eat bread, rice, cornmeal and pasta. But carbohydrates can take up to four hours to digest. We should be conscious of foods that digest quicker and run through and out of our bodies faster, like fresh fruits and vegetables and digestive stimulants like fresh, hot peppers. Maybe those extra pounds will go with the flow. Better energy comes with better digestion and even our brains are connected to our digestion. Strong body… strong mind. How about lively body… lively mind.
