2. Boiling rice with a teaspoon of coconut oil and leaving it to cool for 12 hours before you eat it, can slash the amount of kilojoules your body absorbs by up to 60 percent.
Sri Lankan researchers found the combination of oil and cool temperatures can significantly boost the rice’s resistant starch. Sounds good to me
3. 30g of cottage cheese eaten half an hour before bed increases your exercise gains. Florida state University researchers found that people who eat a protein rich snack at night experience improvements in their muscle quality, metabolism and over all health without gaining extra body fat. I think I have written about this before but I am inclined to repeat myself at times.
4. University of Freiburg in Germany found that depression sufferers soaking in a hot tub for about 30 minutes and then wrapping themselves in a warm blanket for 20 minutes twice a week had a great improvement from the symptoms. They also found it boosted the temperament far more effectively than exercise. (Sound good to me).
5. One of my all time favorite movies ‘Titanic’. One of the most touching stories was of a couple married for many years. Ida Straus gave up her spot on a lifeboat to stay with her husband of 41 years. Isidor, when he was offered a spot next to his wife he refused to take it because there were still women and children on board .
Instead they put their maid on the lifeboat, wrapped her in Ida’s fur coat. The last sight of them was both sitting together on the deck.
The Strauss were not far from a member of their family on the night of their deaths. Their eldest son, Jesse Isidor, the US Ambassador to France, was traveling back to Paris on the Amerika, which had sent Titanic an ice warning earlier that day. Jesse Isidor had also sent his parents a personal telegram, mentioning the ice he had seen.
Isidor’s body was recovered by the Mackay-Bennett. A funereal service for Isidor was delayed for a few days in the hopes that Ida’s body might too be recovered, allowing the two who had lived and died together to also share a funeral—but Ida’s body was never found. Several days later, over twenty thousand people gathered at Carnegie Hall in New York City for a memorial service in the Strauss honor.
