Satisfy your sweet tooth one bite at a time.  It's common to crave sugar, and both men and women get sugar cravings for the same reasons. Sugar cravings stem from both physical and psychological causes. Did you know when you eat sugar your brain absorbs more of the amino acid tryptophan from your blood? Your brain uses tryptophan to manufacture serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for feelings of comfort and elevated mood. The effect on your mood is the same whether you eat fruit or refined sugar, however, consuming refined sugar can lead to wide swings in blood sugar levels, insulin resistance and nutritional deficiencies.  We all know that treats made with refined sugar don't contain the same healthy nutrients found in fruits.

In October 2017, Americans purchased homes at the fastest pace in a decade- a 6.2% monthly increase nationally, and a 16% monthly increase in Palm Beach County, according to the Florida Realtors Association.

Why are people buying?

One contributing factor could be the result of the national interest rate on 30-year fixed mortgages continuing to drop.

Historically, lower mortgage rates have helped drive home sales and those looking to refinance the market.
