(NaturalNews) Can thinking positively drive people to make healthier food choices? According to experts, the answer is yes.

James Twyman, a bestselling author who believes people can attract everything they want in life, agrees that how people think can propel their life for better or worse. He feels that in addition to saying positive things (many people select mantras that they say repeatedly), individuals must also truly believe in what they are saying. In other words, what people think about what they say must be met with a genuine desire and belief in order for the desired outcome to be fully realized.

He's not alone. Esther Hicks, who encourages others with words of positivity stemming from the inspirational guidance of Abraham-Hicks, says that thoughts can guide us in ways people may not typically consider. Sure, winning the lottery might be nice, or falling in love with that certain someone would be dandy, but what about eating healthy foods?

How positive thoughts lead to healthy food choices

Hicks explains that positive thinking (or not) is directly related to the foods people choose to eat. People who regularly think bad, woe-is-me thoughts tend to want to fuel their bodies with things that are just as negative.

She explains that it all comes down to staying in tune with the body by "living harmoniously." Much of this has to do with taking responsibility that thoughts lead people to choose certain foods which either help or harm health. Therefore, she makes the argument that it isn't a specific food or set of foods that can be detrimental to health per se, but rather the mindset a person has in the first place that propels them to make bad eating decisions.

Therefore, Hicks says people should "stop the 'outside-in' approach" of making lists of what foods we should eat and instead "get in alignment with who [we] really are and let who we really are choose [our] food."

Studies published in the Journal of Food Psychology reinforce what these experts say. Researchers at Cornell University Food and Brand Lab found that people eat " . . . healthy or indulgent foods depending on whether they are in a good or a bad mood" and that ". . . individuals in positive moods who make healthier food choices are often thinking more about future health benefits than those in negative moods, who focus more on the immediate taste and sensory experience."

Now, pass that bowl of fresh, organic fruit please!
