Weekend Link Love – Edition 223

Weekend Link LoveFirst off, I’d like to let you all know that anyone who pre-orders The Primal Connection before the giveaways are announced next week will still receive the bonuses (or “boni,” as Mr. Burns would say) associated with the offer. So if you’re eager to get ordering, don’t think you’ll miss out.

One more quick announcement: Tomorrow’s the last day to get two free books (The Primal Blueprint 90-Day Journal and The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation) when you order Primal Fuel at the new, lower cost, so if you’ve been wanting to try Primal Fuel there’s no better time than now.

Research of the Week

In a new study, rodents on a gluten-free diet gained less fat and overall bodyweight than rodents on an otherwise identical diet that contained gluten, despite eating the same amount of food and excreting no additional lipids.

Another interesting rodent study found that rats eating yogurt artificially sweetened with either saccharin or aspartame gained more weight than rats eating yogurt sweetened with regular sugar, despite eating the same number of calories.
