OMG! You Really Can Get Fat Just Looking At Food!

Posted by Lori on August 3, 2009

From The Right Bite by Stephanie Dalvit-McPhillips:

There was a  remarkable study that was conducted at Yale University by Dr. Judith Rodin. She showed that the mere thought of food can start the food deposition process. In experiments, people were instructed not to eat for eighteen hours. At the end of this time, blood samples were drawn from people in the study as they were being told that they could soon eat the juicy mouth-watering steaks charbroiling before them. Results of these tests revealed that in all cases, insulin levels skyrocketed, causing blood sugar to be stored as fat and glycogen well before our famished subjects had taken their first bite.


The human body is an amazing thing.

Mama Needs A Brand New Tripod!

Posted by Lori on April 4, 2008

I’ve added a bookstore link to Amazon where I’ve assembled several books on Lap Band Surgery. The Lap Band Solution, the second on on the page, is by Dr. Paul O’Brien – the Australian researcher behind so many of the studies that I’ve linked here. Dr. Chris Oliver, of Love My Lap Band blogroll fame, has written about how enjoyed Weight Loss Surgery For Dummies, Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding by Jessie Ahroni, and The Emotional First Aid Kit by Cynthia Alexander. He has reviews of those books and links to them at Amazon as well – so if you buy any of those three because of his review, you should buy them from him. 🙂

Anyway, I’m saving my money to buy a new, lighter weight tripod for myself to make shooting my videos a little easier. I have production tripods that never, ever slip regardless of the weight of the camera, but they are unwieldy without an AC to help out. Oh, and maybe a new Arri Light Kit! So, if you want to buy a book on weight loss surgery, I’d love to have your business. 🙂
