I love love love NPR. You can usually find prior shows on line and play through your PC or smartphone.
Spring is almost here. Almost for probably most of the country, here you just never know.
Yesterday, on NPR they were discussing, how we could have spring flooding, but we're still in a drought. I found that funny, but it makes sense, we had so much rain, that just froze on the ground instead of soaking in, and now with all the snow parts of the state got, it will melt and go in the rivers and flood. either way, It reminded me of how it's like people, and exercise. At times, no matter what happens we're counter intuitive, with exercise and eating, like the drought and flooding going together. At first it doesn't make a lot of sense, that we exercise, but we over eat, so exercising doesn't do us much good, like our seasons being in a drought and despite all the snow, and rain we had over the winter, the way it was before we got all that, it won't do us much good.
Another thing, and I recorded the story, because it was about how junk food is so addicting.
It discussed the Bliss point, it is about Sugar, how companies have to find that point in their food to make it just right, that we crave it again because it's so good. It discussed how our bodies can only take in so much sugar, before it gets stored as FAT!!
It also brought up how lunchables got created, and how the creator regrets it but at the time, he thought he was doing us a favor. He also wishes he made them more healthy, but since it has to have a long shelf life, apples or carrots weren't going to work to well in a lunchable.
It was just really really interesting, it all comes from a book the interviewee wrote, as soon as i find the title again I'll post it.
