Yes, you are right! Food cravings are all in your head! Well, to be specific they all start in your brain. There are three regions of the brain that studies by the Monell Chemical Senses Center (1) that are activated during food-craving. These areas include the hippocampus, insula, and caudate.
The study was the first of its kind because they used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study to explicitly examine food craving. Food cravings were of particular interest to them because they felt it was a prime influence on nutrition choices and therefore to obesity.
A two-part approach was used to produce food cravings. Subjects’ diets were designed to be monotonous so as to create food cravings. Next, subjects were asked to imagine their favourite foods during the fMRI test. Craving-related changes in fMRI were identified in the three areas of the brain that were also reported as being involved in drug craving. Therefore, this supported the prevailing hypothesis for food and drug cravings.
It is important to remember that although there is a distinct physiological response in the body that creates cravings, there are also psychological reasons for these strong desires.

infofit.ca Do you suffer from back pain?Your spine starts out with proper posture, however, over time, your muscles, tendons and ligaments become imbalanced.
Fitness Expert Andre Noel Potvin demonstrates how to safely pick up heavy dumbbells off the rack and/or floor before you begin to train with them or even after your second or third set when you are fatigued from your workout.
· Before you lift the dumbbell, make note not to round your back (always maintain a neutral spine), and find a secure position to place your hand on (i.e. dumbbell rack, knee, etc...) in order to brace yourself.
· In a squatting position, grasp the dumbbell with the opposing hand and roll it towards yourself before picking up (dumbbell should be aligned under your center of gravity).
· Keep your lifting arm straight as you rise with the dumbbell, then flip the dumbbell upwards using the momentum created by the squat, then place it on your knee. If you are using another dumbbell, pick the other up in the same manner as previously detailed.
· An alternate method in preparing to move the dumbbells is to pick one up (as detailed above) and place it on a secure raised surface, then lift the other dumbbell separately.
· Place the dumbbell down onto the floor in the same controlled manner you picked them up by bracing yourself, and using your legs (i.e. squat) to lower the dumbbell. Practice good gym etiquette and DO NOT slam the dumbbell on the ground!
