Why Sugar Makes Us Sleepy (And Protein Wakes Us Up)
"(This study, for instance, found that protein rich breakfasts significantly improved cognitive performance.)"

"According to a new paper in Neuron led by scientists at the University of Cambridge, consuming foods high in protein can increase the activity of orexin neurons. This, in turn, leads to increased wakefullness and bodily activity, helping us burn off the calories we just consumed. Furthermore, eating protein in conjunction with glucose – adding almonds to Frosted Flakes, in other words – can inhibit the inhibitory effects of sugar on orexin."

"The importance of this research is that it reveals how the details of a meal – and not just the sheer amount of energy consumed – can dramatically influence the response of the body and brain. Not all calories are created equal; our mental gas pedals are controlled by factors we’re only beginning to comprehend."

"(There’s some suggestive evidence that chronically low levels of orexin can increase the likelihood of depression.)"

In other words, to quote the once wise man Dr. Denis Leary, "Not eating meat is a decision. Eating meat is an instinct"... and for a reason. Suck it vegans. Eat dead pig.

Baaaahahahahaha. Off-topic a little bit, but I told someone I don't like bacon today, and they called me Un-American! UN-AMERICAN!!! I was so offended. Hahaha.

I now have my doubts about you. You may be a commie sleeper agent, comrade.

LOL! Seriously, I don't get it, I can eat every other pork product under the sun but I just can't do bacon. I don't even like the smell of it. :-/

I can't describe the sheer delight in having tasted two delightful culinary creations brought together as one: bacon and chocolate.

Sheer bliss.
