An addictive relationship is an unhealthy situation in which you suffer cravings for the attention and presence of another person. It can lead to feelings similar to drug withdrawal if these needs are not met, including low self-esteem, helplessness, lack of self-confidence and passive behavior.
"Clean eating" is one of the latest buzz phrases in our quest to find the "right" diet. There has been an increase in consumer demand for clean food products. Consumers are asking for products lower in sodium, without high fructose corn syrup and trans-fats, products with short ingredient lists, recognizable and "natural" ingredients.

We get a variety of nutrients from different foods and changing with the seasons can help you to have variety in taste as well as nutrition throughout the year.
I recently had a chance to interview several groups of
extremely successful people. A handful are famous
athletes, several are nationally known artists, writers
or politicians, and all are multi-millionaires. I asked them
for the keys, or essential factors that allowed them to
accomplish so much more than the rest of us.
