Well no wonder

I gained weight while writing The Boys Next Door. Admittedly that book is made of Starbucks coffee and sour cream doughnuts, but I didn't think one a day was doing me in. Imagine my horror to discover in the latest issue of Consumer Reports that Starbucks doughnuts have 500 calories!!! In comparison, Krispy Kremes have only 200. Yes, I keep up with these things.

And now, an even better explanation: "Thinking Hard May Cause People to Overeat, Study Suggests."

In other important breaking news, there is somebody out there in the world named Dr. Poo. This is even funnier in context. From the article I'm copyediting: "The third hypothesis suggests that exercise upregulates neurotrophins such as brain-derived neurotrophic factor and insulin-like growth factor that support dendritic branching and synaptic plasticity in the adult brain (for review see Schinder and Poo)."
