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.

    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.
