"When I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It's also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be."........

Loose weight by eating more....!!!
Did you know that you can actually lose weight by eating?
One thing to note…it isn’t likely to happen by eating cheeseburgers and chocolate donuts.
You’d need to eat what are called Negative Calorie Foods.
How does it work?
All foods have calories, but the act of chewing and digesting those foods also burns calories.
Take a donut as an example. If we eat a donut that contains 400 calories, our body may only burn 150 calories while chewing-up, swallowing and digesting that donut.
That means we’ve experienced a net calorie gain of 250 calories and theoretically added some fat to our body.
Celery on the other hand, not only has far fewer calories than donuts, but is also more difficult for our body to digest.
As a result, you’ll end up burning more calories than you consume. So in theory, if you only consume celery (not recommended) you’ll ‘eat yourself skinny’.
Here are some other negative calorie foods…
