I am currently reading "You: Being Beautful, The Owners Manual to Inner and Outer Beauty. I came across one thing that I thought was pretty interesting and wanted to share with you all.
It basically says that the one thing that motivates us all in life is satisfaction. We want to have experiences and be around people that leave us feeling satisfied because it is a basic biological drive. And there are 4 main drives that exist in our brain's satiety center: food, water, sex and sleep. Basically we need all of these elements for optimum body chemistry.
All these things rely on each other a bit so basically if you are not getting enough of one thing, your body is relying on the other things to be satisfied. One of the main reasons people overeat is because they are not getting enough sleep, sex or water!
Now thats not my personal opinion, thats what the book says. So I wanted to get your feedback on this...do you agree with this at all? For me personally I can see this making sense. But what about people that are not having sex for instance? Like, people that are waiting for marriage, or maybe they are not in a relationship and don't do random hook ups. Does that mean they are going to eat, sleep or drink more water than the average person? I don't think so. But do people that don't get a lot of sleep eat more in general than people that do get enough sleep? Probably, in some circumstances. It's kind of interesting to think about anyway....
