ThinkinG MakeS You FaT

Researchers found the stress of thinking caused overeating with heavy thinkers seeking out more calories.
Too much thinking ‘can make you fat’

After 45 minutes at each activity, participants were invited to eat as much as they wanted from a buffet.
The researchers had already discovered that each session of intellectual work requires only three calories more than the rest period.

However, despite the low energy cost of mental work, the students spontaneously consumed 203 more calories after summarizing a text and 253 more calories after the computer tests.

Ha. So that’s the reason!einstein.gif

And here I thought we were all gettin a tad chunkier due to reduced physical activity and eatin twinkies. heh.

Not to mention those pesky vending machines everywhere beckoning with chocolate bars, those bigger portion sizes, and the increased availability of fast-food.

Heck, we’ve even been told that there is now evidence that lack of sleep can be a factor in weight gain.

Is there anything that doesn’t cause weight gain?

Ah. but don’t sweat it..(on second thought..do..) Over 97 million American adults weigh more than they should.
After all, what better way to suppress or soothe negative emotions, such as stress, anger, or even anxiety than with a nice piece of chocolate cake?

OK. ok. ok.
I know I have a Slooooooooooooow metabolism: And a really hard time burning off food.
But hey, I’m not overweight..I’m just too dang short for my weight.

Ha.

Don’t think too hard guyz n dollz…You may jus find the result..on your hips.

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?

Some people get lost in thought because it’s such unfamiliar territory.

    If thinking makes you fat then perhaps refraining from thinking should make you skinny. I see no evidence if this in our culture.

    And this is why the Government is going to regulate what we eat! So, we don’t have to worry about ourselves anymore, because Big Brother will do it for us. (Rolls eyes)
    Geez, is this reasearch bunk. I think ALL the time. I mean I OVER think EVERYTHING and I’m a rail. Maybe let’s take some of this money that’s wasted on stupid research and put it toward our national debt. I mean, just a thought. Guess I’ll go weight myself.

  3. Katie says:

    Funny but when I’m working I lose weight and when I’m not I gain it.

    Go figure.

  4. heidianne jackson says:

    well, i’ll take any excuse i can get. but sweating seems to be the best countermeasure, whatever the cause.

    have a great weekend, angel!

  5. Christopher Hamilton says:

    That’s funny because it’s the exact opposite with me. When I am feeling really stressed and I have a lot on my mind, I tend to eat less.

    Flying While Muslim…

    Perhaps the flying while Muslim on September 11, 2001 is responsible for the flying while Muslim difficulties since then.

    Um, I hate to blow a hole in their theory, Angel my friend, but I’ve known some extremely fat people who haven’t had a heavy thought in their lives. LOL! And since Americans have this fat thing going on and they’re supposed to be heavy thinkers, why did they vote for Obama? Just askin’. LOL!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)

    OK. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Twenty five pounds of thoughts.

  14. Jungle Mom says:

    Maybe the test group ate more because we are social eaters? I prefer to think it is from great deep thinking, but the more I think about it, …the hungrier I get!

  15. MK says:

    Thinking too much takes time away from getting exercise, that’s what i think. On the plus side the fatter you are, the more evidence that you’re a great thinker. :)

    Beer and Gin and some chocolate…. that’s what makes one thin! :)

    I am getting very fat lately, must be my thinking. I’m gonna get huge!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. nanc says:

    i’m thankful to say i’ve never really had to battle weight problems and as i’m 5’8″, a few pounds over my ideal weight isn’t all that bad. exercise is definitely the answer. also approaching my middle 50′s has been detrimental – the weight is shifting…
