Eating Late Makes You Fat
A new study by Harvard University reveals that eating after 10 p.m. makes you fat and feel more hungry the next day. Researchers studied two sets of people. One set ate dinner early while the other ate dinner late. They found the people, who ate late craved sugary and salty snacks the next day , burned calories more slowly and showed more fat growth.
Lead researcher Nina Vujović says, ''In this study, we asked, “Does the time that we eat matter when everything else is kept consistent? And we found that eating four hours later makes a significant difference for our hunger levels, the way we burn calories after we eat, and the way we store fat.''

Unborn Baby Smiling Study
A new study by Durham University reveals that some unborn babies smile when their mothers eat carrots, but frown when they eat kale. Researchers studied 100 pregnant women before concluding that their unborn babies can sense differences in flavors. They used an ultrasound to record the babies' facial expressions. The team was shocked when carrots pulled the babies' faces in a shape that was reminiscent of a tiny smile. The bitter flavor of kale made it look like the unborn babies were about to cry.
Lead researcher Beyza Ustun says, "Our research is the first one showing direct evidence of fetal reactions to flavors in the womb. We know that having a healthy diet during pregnancy is crucial for the health of children. And our evidence can be helpful to understand that adjusting maternal diet can promote healthy eating habits for children."
I just started online dating. I thought I'd been chatting with several cute guys that were okay until my friends told me to stay away from them. They say never chat with guys that post pictures of themselves in sunglasses. It means they're hiding something or married. I didn't get that vibe at all, but they swear by it. Is it true what they say? I haven't dated in nine years so I need help with this. Are there any other red flags I need to be aware of when it comes to profile pix?
