    I understand the problem with kitchen sponges but I am so confused on what to use instead? ( I haven’t gotten rid of mine)

    After the 90-minute run, the men reported feeling less hungry than when they had sat around the lab, even an hour and a half later. But after the short, intense workout, the volunteers soon felt peckish, despite still having low levels of acylated ghrelin in their blood.

    So long runs = less hungry, and intense workout = more hungry. And their recommendation is:

    But the results also intimate that if we hope to have workouts reduce our appetite, we may wish to increase the intensity or, even more, the duration of each session.

    Am I mis-reading something, or is that conclusion entirely self-contradictory? I certainly hope this is the reporter getting it wrong, and not the study.

    Have you viewed What the Health? It made some really good points. I am super surprised you would call it propaganda.

      I couldn’t make it through the whole thing, but I know the people involved and their arguments well. There are many other documentaries that are basically the same (Forks Over Knives, etc.), as well as books I’ve read (The China Study, etc.). This argument has been around for decades.

      Yes there are certainly some valid points. Would we all be better off eating more vegetables, legumes and intact grains? Absolutely. Are the industrial food and medical systems biased toward unhealthy measures? Absolutely. Is a vegan diet healthier than the average American diet? Yep. Does the healthiest way to eat require excluding all animal products? Absolutely not.

      Being vegan requires vitamin supplementation to even be viable. There are certain animal foods that are uniquely healthy that cannot be replicated by plants. The producers of this film deliberately ignore these truths to promote an ideology. I consider that propaganda.

    Thanks for the ab exercise link Darya! Super excited to finally get my abs back to normal.

    Hi Darya! First off, congratulations on your pregnancy news, I’m so excited for you! And thanks for the article on abdominal separation. As it happens, I just had my second girl 3 days ago and have been researching this lately. After my first, I had a pretty large separation but didn’t realize or know it was even a thing until long after the pregnancy. This time around I’m hoping to do something about it as soon as I’m healed enough.

    Heck out Ali Kamenova on YouTube for more post-baby abdominal vacuum guided videos . I really feel like her Yoga videos are a really fun and challenging addition to my yoga practice.
