Ninja Niblets: July 11

11 Jul

A few quick ninja niblets for your enjoyment today…

According to an blurb in Fitness Magazine (June 2011),women who do a full body strength workout with weights score 13% higher on mental attention tests than those who just did bodyweight classes. Learning proper lifting techniques and form stimulates brain function which improves mental skills like memory and concentration. So pick up some weights and get lifting!

ScienceDaily.com wrote that part of the reason you can’t eat just one potato chip or one fry is that the fats produce marijuana like chemicals in your body making you eat them compulsively. These chemicals were not found in sugars or proteins but only in high fats. Craving a crunchy snack food? Try baby carrots, celery or chopped cucumbers instead.

    Did you read that potato chips make you fatter per calorie than other foods? A little piece of my heart died when I read that, ha ha. I really think it’s unfair!

      Yes I did read that. A little piece of me died inside when I read it. 😦 😦 Seriously not fair. But I can seriously understand how it’s true. Kettle cooked potato chips are my major Achilles heel.
