DailyDirt: Playing Some Games With Hunger

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The problem with hunger isn't limited to not having enough to eat -- other hunger issues arise with over-active cravings that lead to obesity and other health problems. For many people, it's not so simple to just "eat less and exercise more" despite how simple that formula sounds. Here are just a few links on the topic of watching what you eat and trying to control caloric intake. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Are those pay what you want stores still open?

    Or have the free loaders forced them to shut down?

    what year is this?

    "there is some evidence that high-glycemic foods (from processed carbohydrates) can cause blood sugar spikes and stimulate hunger. "

    This has been well-established for 20 years, and is based on research from the '70s and '80s into potential diabetic diets and their effects.

    Hard to believe anyone -- let alone the NYTimes -- treats this as news.
