Everyone has cravings. Craving what our body needs is natural and often alerts us to deficiencies in vitamins, minerals, proteins, sugar, or water.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired?

How Vitamin C Deficiency Is Sucking the Life Out of You.

If you are deficient in vitamin C, you will quickly notice the signs of scurvy setting in. These symptoms are synonymous with what most people consider “feeling old”. First, you’ll be unmotivated to do anything. You’ll be tired, lethargic, and back-and-forth between depressed and anxious or irritable. Next, you will notice receding or spongy gums, bleeding gums, and bleeding from mucous membranes. This is the collagen matrix that holds your teeth securely in place breaking down. If you start getting sores on your thighs and legs, you are in very dangerous territory, as your body is completely breaking down, inside and out.

Frustrated with Diet and Exercise. Leptin Diet.

Even healthy snacks and meals can cause weight gain, high triglycerides, obesity, and diabetes. Here's the answer you've been searching for.

In yesterday’s article Basic Magnesium Deficiency Causes Obesity and Diabetes, we discussed how leptin is responsible for telling your brain when you’re full, when you have the correct nutrients and fat, and when to stop making insulin. Leptin resistance leads to insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity.

Many people struggle with dieting for a variety of reasons, but nothing is more frustrating than doing everything right for a prolonged period of time and still not losing any weight. When exercise, cutting calories, counting carbs, and carefully following a diet plan have failed you, it is time to take a look at your health.
