Food Addiction – Are You a Food Addict?
One need only ask themselves a few key questions to determine his or her addiction:
- Do you eat when you are not hungry or when you feel low or depressed?
- Do you eat in secret or eat differently in front of others than when you’re alone?
- Do you consume inordinate amounts of food and then purge later with vomiting or laxatives to get rid of the excess?
- Are there foods that are harmful to you, but you eat them anyway?
- Do you feel guilty after eating?

Fat Burning Foods - Do They Exist?Author: Sandy Griffin
While there are some foods (celery, grapefruits, etc.) that can help with metabolic rate and weight loss, a single food diet is not good for your body. A lot of people are skeptical about the idea of fat burning foods. Finding a food that will boost your metabolism, can it be that easy to loss weight?
Well in a word 'NO'.
There has been many studies to find out if a celery or grapefruit diet will help speed up your metabolism but none have been able to prove this as true or false. One fact is that adding these foods into a healthy diet is good for your body, and low in calories. Celery is one fat burning food that is high in fiber and can help the body burn more calories. So, what does all this mean? Is there fat burning foods, that can boost your metabolism? Well thats simple, adding celery and grapefruit to your diet will help your burn calories. Don't just eat those foods alone but add them to your diet.
So before you run out and buy all the celery and grapefruit you can find, take a deep breathe and remember to add this to your overall diet program. Here is few things you need to think of to add these fat burning foods:
Make sure you eat smarter, you can't change your metabolism, you can massage it a little bit. Frequent, smaller portions through the day. Eat smaller meals every four to six hours during the day, adding in celery and grapefruit is great but make sure to only add these to a healthy diet. What does healthy diet mean? It's a balanced diet.
Move, get up, exercise will help when trying to boost your metabolism. Fat burning foods will only do their job if you get up and move, go out play with the kids, clean the house, just get out and do something. The more you move the harder your metabolism will have to work to keep up.
More muscle. If you have more muscle, the more calories you will have to burn to keep up with you body. Muscle burns fat. Now don't run out and start pumping iron, you don't have become a weight lifter. You just need to build lean muscle mass to help boost metabolism. So toning and shaping is all you really need to do.
If you think you can just go out and boost your metabolism with super foods then you may just be fooling yourself. If you are just eating one type food, meat or vegetable can end up hurting you in the end. Having a healthy diet with all the food groups and adding some fat burning foods to your diet can help give you the results you are looking for.
