Everyone has a desire to rid themselves of their weight as quickly as they can. I wish that I had a magic wand that I could wave over every obese person out there and his/her excess fat would be gone forever. This simply is not the case. Here are some…


Why do we crave unhealthy foods? A healthy weight loss diet program often becomes a battleground between our desire to lose weight quickly, and snack cravings based on unhealthy food choices. We may not be what we eat, but research indicates that we desire the foods that we have grown accustomed to eating, so you could say that we crave what we eat. If you have created a pattern of eating ice cream for pleasure or when under stress, it should be no surprise that you will have a hankering for ice cream under the right conditions. Pavlov’s Dog, by any other name, is still Pavlov’s Dog.

But if we have, in effect, trained ourselves to want unhealthy snacks or foods, the reverse may also be true: we can train ourselves to crave healthy snacks and food. If we can do this, a bland tasting weight loss supplement could become just as desirable as a sweet roll.

I never craved coffee until I started drinking it. The same goes for double chocolate chip ice cream. The taste for coffee and chocolate must be learned through exposure to these foods and their flavors. If people who live in more primitive cultures in the jungle can have a hankering to snack on creepy-crawly insects unique to their habitat, surely we can develop our own desire for a decent, healthy snack, healthy fast food, and healthy food recipe choices when preparing meals.

So how do we re-program ourselves to turn a craving for sweets into something on the healthy food list? To quote a line from a movie, “Build it and they will come.” In this case, if we build the habit of making healthy food choices at meal and snack time, we will begin to want those foods instead of the ones we’ve given up.

There is a lot of pleasure associated with these snacking experiences, and most of us are reluctant to give them up. But if we can get ourselves to substitute some simple healthy food and snack recipes, we can train our mental and physical taste buds to desire them, and a new pleasure-association will be formed around the new healthy food choice or recipe.

Recent research has proven this. The results showed that new cravings can be formed to replace old ones, even though the new ones are based on bland, healthy foods, and the original ones were the tried and true fat and sugar tasty delights. The best news? It may only require one week to do it.

I’ve addressed some healthy snack ideas to use for re-training our cravings in another article. (It contains healthy snack ideas that also apply to children.) For now, I’ll give just a few examples of healthy snack food substitutions.

If you don’t want such a jolt to your taste buds right out of the gate, you can make it a two-step process in some cases. For example, when the seemingly uncontrollable urge for chocolate ice cream hits, instead have a coffee cup or glass of Chocolate Ovaltine and milk. Ovaltine is not like the junky chocolate milk mixes pitched to kids. Think of it instead as a healthy fast food snack. It contains vitamins and minerals, and if you use one or two tablespoons instead of the recommended four, not too much sugar.

Step two: Purchase a good chocolate flavored whey protein mix from your local health food supplier (or the flavor of your choice) and use it instead of the Ovaltine. These protein supplements are not anything like they used to be. In the past, they would NOT mix without a blender, and they tasted pretty bad. Not so anymore. They mix quickly by simply stirring or shaking, and the flavors are quite good. Trust me.

Now you’ve turned a fat and sugar ice cream binge into a healthy fast food choice: a protein supplement! In addition, it’s far more filling and satisfying. You won’t be tempted to eat anything as quickly as you would if you had succumbed and eaten ice cream.

Don’t think this will work? Well, I can vouch for it personally, and tests done on regular everyday people like us have proven the same. In fact, it worked when very bland but healthy food recipes and snack substitutes were used instead of the usual tasty treats, and in only a week’s time. People actually craved the bland tasting healthy snack food in preference to their old unhealthy treats.

Go ahead and give it a try. You’ll be craving healthy foods and snacks in no time.


Le continent africain était l’un des plus riches du monde. Bien que l’Occident ait essayé de peindre l’Afrique comme un endroit non civilisé, c’était le plus grand mensonge marketing raconté de l’histoire. L’Afrique était extrêmement développée avec ses propres villes, palais, monuments, peintures, art, musique et histoire très riche.

Ibn Battuta était un célèbre voyageur du monde et voici quelques-unes de ses citations sur différents empires et pays d’Afrique. C’était au cours des années 1300.

Mali

Ibn Battuta a été impressionné par le fait que le peuple malien «a une plus grande haine de l’injustice que tout autre peuple». Il a raconté que le mansa montrait peu de pitié aux coupables. «Il y a une sécurité totale dans leur pays», a-t-il écrit. «Ni les voyageurs ni les habitants n’ont rien à craindre des voleurs ou des hommes violents.»

Somalie

Ces robes se composent d’une enveloppe de soie que l’on noue autour de la taille à la place des tiroirs (car ils n’ont pas connaissance de ceux-ci), une tunique de lin égyptien avec une bordure brodée, un manteau fourrure de Jérusalem et un turban égyptien. avec un bord brodé…. Il apporta aussi une cruche d’eau de rose de Damas,qu’il répandit sur moi et sur le cadi.

La ville de Kilwa est parmi les plus belles des villes et est élégamment construite.

Did Colonialism benefict or harm AFRICA

The continent of Africa was one of the wealthiest in the World. Although the West tried to paint Africa as some uncivilized place that was the biggest marketing lie told in history. Africa was extremely developed with its own cities, palaces, landmarks, paintings, art, music, and very rich history.

Ibn Battuta was a famous World Traveler and this was some of his quotes on different empires and countries in Africa. This was during the 1300s btw ..

Mali

Ibn Battuta was impressed that the Mali people “have a greater hatred of injustice than any other people.” He related that the mansa showed little mercy to the guilty. “There is complete security in their country,” he wrote. “Neither traveler nor inhabitant in it has anything to fear from robbers or men of violence.”

Somalia

These robes of theirs consist of a silk wrapper which one ties around the waist in place of drawers (for they have no acquaintance with these), a tunic of Egyptian linen with an embroidered border, a furred mantle of Jerusalem stuff, and an Egyptian turban with an embroidered edge…. He brought also a jug of rose-water of Damascus, which he poured over me and over the qadi.

Kilwa ( Present Day Tanzania)

The city of Kilwa is amongst the most beautiful of cities and elegantly built.
