Well, our big double birthday weekend flew by. With it came a lot of calories and, unfortunately, they did not vamoose with the weekend. I still have the remnants of cheesecake and cookie cake waiting to be consumed or pitched. Pitched. Yeah, right.
I decided to Google for online tips to curb my desire to munch. There are, of course, ooh-gobs of sites that offer advice. Nothing popped that will end my love affair with cheesecake, but I did come across an article at health.com, “Hungry? Men’s Brains Fight Urge to Eat Better than Women’s” that held my interest even as I rolled my eyes. Did you know that research has determined that a woman’s monthly cycle influences her brain’s responses to food? Someone had to do a study to figure that out? Are they kidding?
Furthermore, researchers did a brain scan of both men and women and discovered that if they flashed yummy stuff to eat along with the directive to tamp down the hunger that “…only the men showed a drop in activity in brain regions involved in emotion and motivation.”
I could comment here, but some things are just too easy. I’ll let Tina Fey have that one.
Anyway, as it turns out, this site has lots of goodies for both men and women. It prompted me to add a new set of links to my sidebar: Unisex URLs.
I need to run. There is a piece of cheesecake in my fridge, and it is in perfect harmony with my brainwaves. Sounds like fat…er, fate…to me.
Til next time,
