Bad Foods…….Bad Hair…..

sweetpotatoesHave you ever noticed that when you crave certain foods majority of the time it’s not the ideal healthy snack or meal? There is a reason for this and understanding these reasons can help us on our journey to live a longer healthier life. All women want healthy, bouncy, beautiful hair, but the effort that is put into having healthier hair is mediocre to none. Junk food has an awesome power in fooling the brain to believe that it is getting nutrition, but not to fill us up. “Receptors in your mouth and stomach tell your brain about the mixture of proteins, fats, carbohydrates in a particular food, and how filling that food is for your body. Junk food provides just enough calories that your brain says, “Yes, this will give you some energy” but not so many calories that you think “That’s enough, I’m full.” The result is that you crave the food to begin with, but it takes quite some time to feel full from it. First, there is the sensation of eating the food. This includes what it tastes like (salty, sweet, umami, etc.), what it smells like, and how it feels in your mouth. This last quality— known as “orosensation”—can be particularly important. Food companies will spend millions of dollars to discover the most satisfying level of crunch in a potato chip. Their scientists will test for the perfect amount of fizzle in a soda. These factors all combine to create the sensation that your brain associates with a particular food or drink. The second factor is the actual macronutrient makeup of the food—the blend of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that it contains. In the case of junk food, food manufacturers are looking for a perfect combination of salt, sugar, and fat that excites your brain and gets you coming back for more”. (http://lifehacker.com/why-your-brain-craves-junk-food-and-what-you-can-do-ab-1469120841)

Healthy Hair Food Tip: Sweet potatoes a great source of the antioxidant beta-carotene which the body turns into vitamin A. The cells of the body cannot function without enough vitamin A. It also helps protect and produce the oils that sustain your scalp, and being low on vitamin A can even leave you with itchy, irksome dandruff. Other options: cantaloupe, mangoes, pumpkin, and apricots are a good source of beta-carotene.
