I didn’t go to bed until around 6 in the morning, slept for 1-2 hours and was up again, working. And I was surprised that I managed to concentrate and be productive. I don’t talk about work in my blog, because my work is not food related, however I will make a tiny exception. I am working on bidding for a project in one of the Middle Eastern countries and we have partnered with a firm from Middle East. The amazing thing is that I contacted the firm through email and we agreed to collaborate, there were no meetings, phone calls or referrals. We were total strangers. Bidding for the project required a lot of time and effort, and some expenses. We both played our part without hesitation. I find it amazing that we manage to connect with people without meeting and knowing them, and they are willing to take responsibilities, meet certain obligations and also expenses. And this is where food comes in. Bloggers are doing guest blogs for others, giving away stuff, donating money and finding other ways to assist, even without meeting or knowing them. It is good to know that there are still lots of wonderful people in the world!
What I’ve written above – I don’t know where it came from and it probably shouldn’t belong here but since I put a little bit of effort into writing it (not much actually), I will leave it. I don’t have much else to write today. My food today was delicious but nothing to talk about.

The appetite of marijuana smokers increases when they are on a high, a phenomena affectionately referred to as "the munchies." Wondering what this does to your weight? A study from France has found that marijuana smokers are actually less likely than non-smokers to gain weight. Now don’t get any silly ideas on ways to maintain weight!
Data from more than 50,000 U.S. adults was analysed by French researchers. They found that roughly 14 percent to 17 percent of the people reporting that they smoked pot at least three days per week were obese. That compared with a 22 to 25 percent obesity rate among people who said they had not used pot in the past 12 months.
The article didn’t provide reasons why smoking could result in smokers not gaining weight. Scientists have researched the role of various molecules within marijuana smoke that produce the high feeling, block pain, and may underlie the hunger for food typically provoked by pot use. Cannabinoids, molecules similar to natural signalling chemicals in the body, are believed to be key to stimulating appetite. In 2006, a drug called Rimonabant, designed to work against cannabinoids, was developed. Rimonabant was approved in more than 30 countries, except in the United States, for the treatment of obesity. But the drug was pulled off the shelves two years later because of an increased risk of suicide among its users. Whether cannabinoids are the only appetite stimulants in pot smoke, or whether other chemicals might account for the effect, remains to be seen, the researchers say.
