Today’s link discusses one of those things that you knew was true, but never had concrete evidence. It is an exposé of the science that goes into engineering junk jood and snacks that make them addictive and trigger your brain to crave them.  Strong phrases such as “..the toll taken on the public health by a poor diet rivals that taken by tobacco” are used in the article. It comes from a book to be published soon. The article is a long one, but very important. It needs to be shared.

I had to take an extra rest day this weekend due to a soccer tournament that my daughter participated in on Saturday. I am looking forward to hitting the gym tonight to do some burpee clusters and toes to bar.
