Impacts your metabolism, appetite, and fat storage.
Can cause overwhelming sugar and carb cravings.
Has the power to cause mood disorders, anxiety, and depression via the vagus nerve (which obviously may influence emotional eating).

Because somewhere along the way I realized fear was running almost every part of my life.
Sure on the outside everything seemed fine, even to me!

Who wakes up every morning and goes through the motions of their day?
Who looks at their life and sometimes wonders with bafflement how did I get here?
Who walks around feeling utterly detached from their life, even from the good stuff?
Who thinks back to who they were before the fancy job, the husband, the kids, the house with the white picket fence, and...
