I always thought that the ideal body image is a tall thin woman with sleek hair! Why do I think that? Maybe it is because I do not have any of these traits. Do we all want what we do not have? What we cannot have? Is this the ugly truth? What is the ideal body image? Why do we need a body image?
I was inspired to write about body image, since the moment I read an article Gorgeous little girl by Kate Fridkis on her blog. She writes about body image, beauty, and self-esteem.

In my pregnancy, I was hungry all the time. My appetite and my need of food become greater. I was looking for satisfying healthy food that can keep me up for a long time. I wanted to explore new healthy food. I know that beans are fulfilling, I eat chickpeas, fava beans, and peas all the time. I thought this is the time to discover a new bean. I decided to try Red beans, I didn’t try it before. We don’t have it in my home country.

When I was young, sweet potato was just a seasonal vegetable. I dreaded eating it in the first time. Why I should I eat such an ugly thing? But, out of curiosity, I tried it and I loved it. But, unfortunately my parents stopped bringing it into the house for no reason.

In the last post Coffee The Magical Elixir (Part 1) I discussed how drinking coffee can reduce the risk of some diseases like Cancer, Parkinson, Alzheimer and others. In this post I will talk about common misconceptions about caffeine and coffee.
Can Caffeine wake you up?
When Caffeine enters the body, it binds to the Adenosin (a neurochemical has a role in calming the body) receptors, so the cells speed up instead of slowing. Also the Caffeine has an effect on the brain; it stimulates the pituitary gland to release a stress hormone called Adrenaline so the body will be in a ready-to fight situation. Heart rate and blood pressure will increase and, the liver releases sugar in your bloodstream for extra energy.
