2. The Appetite Workout

This was interesting. Working out will make you hungry, but if you keep working out overtime, your body will compensate. It takes 3 months, so stick with it.

Ok, this article reminded me of an article a friend sent around last year about how the mice we use in all of our scientific testing are all creating false results. Similarlly, psychologists have thought that the western brain was the "normal" brain, while the rest of the world's brains were strange. Take China. There the nail that sticks out gets the hammer. Here, the squeeky wheel gets the grease. So, we thought most of the world felt that sticking out and being an individual was the best way of thinking. Well most of the world thinks like the Chinese. This has implications for lots of science and really how we view and interact with the world. Excellent article. Hat tip to Keith.
