Ukas sitat:

«Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must move faster than the lion or it will not survive. Every morning a lion wakes up and it knows it must move faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve. It doesn’t matter if you are the lion or the gazelle, when the sun comes up, you better be moving.»
- Maurice Greene, 5-time world champion 100-meter sprinter.

Why Do We Like the Taste Of Protein? En flott artikkel på Wired.com som tar for seg temaet om smak, og hvorfor det ikke bare er smaken og lukten, men innholdet av kalorier som gir oss nytelse. Den tar også for seg årsaken for at vi liker protein, umami. Et par sitater:

- «…Let’s imagine, for instance, that some genius invented a reduced calorie bacon product that tasted exactly like bacon, except it had 50 percent fewer calories. It would obviously be a great day for civilization. But this research suggests that such a pseudo-bacon product, even though it tasted identical to real bacon, would actually give us much less pleasure. Why? Because it made us less fat. Because energy is inherently delicious. Because we are programmed to enjoy calories…»

- «It turns out that, when we give up animal products, we don’t just need to trick the tongue into thinking that those tofu hot dogs are full of glutamate. We also need to pull off an even more difficult deception: We have to convince our stomach and intestines that what we’re eating is full of meaty amino acids, or at least MSG».

En god grillmiddag :)

10 Exercise myths that won’t go away: En overraskende god artikkel om treningsmyter hos CNN, i motsetning til Dagbladets lignende artikkel forige uke, som rett og slett var latterlig dårlig.

2) No pain, no gain.
1) Stretching will help prevent injuries.»
