Caesar:Julius Caesar Act 1, scene 2, 190–195
Let me have men about me that are fat,
Sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights.
Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look,
He thinks too much; such men are dangerous.
Cassius appears a little underfed these days. His "lean and hungry look" unsettles Julius Caesar, who prefers the company of fat, contented men—who wouldn't bite the hand that feeds them. Cassius looks like he's been up late nursing his envy, a situation that bodes ill for the dictator. Caesar's intuition is accurate: Cassius will spearhead the plot to assassinate him [seeMASTERS OF THEIR FATES].
Marcus Antonius tries to soothe Caesar: "Fear him not, Caesar, he's not dangerous,/ He is a noble Roman, and well given." Ironically, the superstitious Caesar, who sees through Cassius's noble exterior, will die, while the deluded Antony will survive to avenge him, and later to take power.

Probiotics - probiotics are also great for chronic gas and bloating. We need this good bacteria in our gut to help us with our immune system as well as our digestive system. We lose our good bacteria in times of stress, poor nutrition, prolonged periods with lack to rest/sleep and when we take antibiotics. Rebuilding your digestive flora will help you to digest your foods better, and will help to relieve gas and bloat. Try integrating some raw unpasteurized sauerkraut into your diet a few times per week, or make some raw probiotic almond yogurt. 3. Heart burn - More often than not, heartburn is actually caused by too little stomach acid being produced in the stomach, instead of too much. The reason this causes heartburn is if we do not...
