Welcome to Week 26
I hope you all had an excellent holiday weekend! For those of you in other countries, I hope you had a great weekend anyway ;-) After all that "getting my laptop fixed" I had to buy a new one, but hopefully that means I'm officially back up and running!

Eat More Food with Fewer Calories
The secret is this little thing called energy density. If you are intrigued and want to read all about it, I attached a .pdf to the blog post with more information. Here is the general idea. Different foods have different energy densities, defined as calories per gram. The lower the energy density, the more food you can eat while still keeping your calories down. Research shows that people tend to eat the same amount of food on a day to day basis. In a diet, you try to restrict that amount and then are not satisfied. Try instead to substitute lower energy density foods (which also tend to be higher in many micronutrients, double bonus).
