#Magnesium And Your #Health

           I've never been one to eat a lot of candy, but I do love chocolate. In fact I crave it!!!!
As a chef for around 30 years I've noticed, in the last 5 years a sharp increase in #food #allergies. While doing some research on food allergies, exploring recipes and causes, I came across the fact that a craving of chocolate is a symptom of magnesium deficiency. This was very interesting to me and on further study found out it affects weight loss, insulin resistance, ageing and other health problems that I am dealing with.
     I've been taking a magnesium supplement for about a month now and I'm pleased to say the cravings are virtually gone. Used to, every time I went to the grocery store it was a battle to buy or not to buy a candy bar for the ride home. I can honestly say that I can't remember when the last time I thought about chocolate!    Over the past month I've been exercising a little bit more a very little bit. The big change is eating a pretty much 90% organic, 80% vegetable based diet. The annual health fair is this Saturday. It will be interesting to see my results, although, I think it would have been better after three months, so if the results are not what I'm hoping for I'm still going to continue. I just don't think a month is long enough to get great results when you have had a life time of bad habits.
