Heatwave! According to the forecast, Los Angeles can expect five days of hot, hot, hot weather. Last night I received an email asking Los Angelenos to conserve energy by not using our air conditioners between 3 and 10 pm…the hottest hours of the day!
My plan for the next few days is to get up early to get my work and exercise in before I melt!
By a wide margin, last week’s top clicked Thing was the photo essay about the gorgeous black panther in India. Why am I not surprised???
And, now, 5 Things for you to read...
2. If you’ve been reading 5 Things for awhile you know I’m super curious about how to prevent cognitive decline, as much as possible. Couch Potato No More: How the Benefits of Exercise Transfer to the Brain
3. Thanks to Ellen Britt, I’ve become a fan of Topo Chico mineral water. There is something about the mineral content that makes it taste better than other mineral waters. But is it actually good for you? Is Fancy Mineral Water Actually Any Better for You Than Tap Water?
4. Ellen Britt and I moved our intermittent fasting newsletter to the Substack platform and the latest edition is now live. We address one of the top questions we get about IF… IF Insider – No. 11 – “Why aren’t I losing weight?” Edition
5. And finally, here’s what I’m reading… Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer. I’ve read Into Thin Air and Into the Wild, both of which were riveting. Krakauer’s investigative research and writing style keep me glued to the page. Under the Banner of Heaven, from 2003, is a fascinating account of the history of the Fundamentalist offshoots of the Mormon church.
