    I never really thought about it that way, that we Crave the things that are bad for us. I was always taught that if we were craving something it was because our bodies Needed it.

    I know this is a terrible thing to share but I've been craving Blueberry unfrosted poptarts for the past 2 weeks and I picked some up yesterday when I went shopping. I decided, for fun, to try this little test and I have to tell you the results were a bit scary to me.

    My pulse increased 42 BEATS in just 1 MINUTE within after eating the poptart.

    That was sitting down, I didn't even stand up first. 42 BEATS.

    I have a tendency to get nauseaus or light headed or just feel "off" after eating certain types of junk food, but this was a real eye opener as to the amount of stress this junk food puts on my own body. Thank you for sharing the test, very interesting!

    Get checked for diabetes, high carbohydrate foods also increase pulse for diabetics, also blood sugar issues causes nausea and feeling off, so does thyroid.

    Just wondering where do you test the environmental allergens? I can't imagine wanting to put them in your mouth for testing. Is there a place on the body that is best for testing those?
