When you’re consumed by anger, do you or have you turned to chips, candies or other junk foods full of sugar or processed carbs?
In short, did you get cravings when you’re furious?
Then did you binge?
And did that lead to weight gain?
You’re in good company.
Millions overeat junk foods and become obese, because they shove toxic foods into their mouths while consumed by toxic emotions such as anger. (Of course, other emotions may play into this, too.)
Anger is one of the most dangerous emotions.
Research shows that if you suppress it or express your anger, you may develop a variety of diseases, including coronary heart disease, bulimia and type 2 diabetes, as well as cancer, which also has been linked to anger.
I invite you to ask yourself: Are you one of those, who pigs out when you’re angry?
Indeed, the more you forgive, the less you’ll crave.
Rather than just tell you to quit being angry, I invite you to learn about the power of forgiveness.
While you’re waiting for one or both books to arrive, I invite you to listen to the fascinating interviews that I did with Drs. Friedman and Luskin, who both offer fascinating information about the power of forgiveness.
First, I invite you to listen do Dr. Luskin’s take on forgiveness.
