"RESETTING" the body to "lose weight"
Okay . . . from yesterday's conversation, we should now have the knowledge and ability to get the body flushing and ready to lose some "fat".
So today . . . let's talk about the chemicals in the brain that dictate to our "pleasure" foods and ability to control an addiction or "NOT".
You see . . . when we get to the part in this series about what foods are good or bad to eat . . . this topic won't mean a hill of beans . . . if we still have "cravings" and "no control". Not to mention . . . if we can't eliminate the fat.

So how do we correct these chemicals so we don't "crave" these "guilty" foods?
Therefore . . . are finally able to get a plan together to lose the extra pounds????

But . . . when we don't produce enough of this "amino acid" . . . "endorphin" and dopamine" malfunction. And then add to that . . . "lectins" sending out miscommunication to the brain . . . we don't have a chance of getting rid of the cravings . . .
Now . . . this amino acid . . . acts as a n
