    Well they are like a ying and yang. They need each other in order to create an energy balance in the body. They work together in your gastrointestinal system where the ghrelin tells your body when to eat in order to gain energy, and then leptin tells you when you have gained enough food for energy, and thus you are satiated.

    I dread to think!
    If you talk to a cat they look at you as if you are way below their intelligence to even listen.
    However, when you talk to a dog they look at you with such admiration and really do seem to understand what you are saying.
    Even if it is a bit silly...
    ...they still think you are wonderful.

    I'm impressed.
    Can you now summarize what the Minnesota Starvation Project was all about?

    It's really easy! It can be quite addictive too!

    Well, excuse me while I save the world. Lol.

    Hmmm, do you have an eating disorder?

    I could cheat and look it up on a search engine, but from what I remember of it from school, is it was an experiment that happened before experiments in the United States became more restrictive to how they could be conducted on humans, where people were starved intentionally so that the effects could be studied, and so that the effects of trying to rehabilitate the people after starvation could also be observed in order to be able to help people from other countries who might face starvation from wars and natural disasters.

    Damn what else does it take from a person in order to impress you?!!? I just hope you don't want a copy of my credit report...

    Whoa. So you answered ghrelin and leptin from memory?

    I've been reading about the Holocaust a few months ago, one thing led to another...blah blah, and I saw the frail bodies of some of the jews who were starved to the point of emaciation and death. That made me wonder what happens to the body when you're short of nutrients like that. Voila! Google pointed me to that experiment.

    No need to impress me. The fact that you're in this forum, interested in literature and writing, is impressive enough.

    High five!


    P.S. Your answer regarding the Starvation project is on point too.
    Okay, I will marry you. Lol.

    I was a district manager for a nutritional company here in the U.S. called GNC (General Nutrition Center). I have also studied some nutrition in college, so I know a few things like that. I also read a lot of news articles and stuff online, so I am full of useless information. I'm just curious, you used to list your location as PH, is that the Philippines? I'm currently taking a Human Trafficking class and we talk a lot about Asia. The text talks a lot about The Golden Triangle, Thailand, and some about the Philippines. If you are from the Philippines, have you noticed organized crime and human trafficking first hand? Especially sex tourism?

    Sorry if I'm derailing the thread, if so you can answer me in PM. Thanks!
