Just back from a holiday backpacking in the Alps for about 8 days continuously (not everyone's idea of a holiday, I'll agree). During this time I noted that despite massive increases in my energy expenditure by comparison to sitting at a computer emailing or blogging, I experienced a much reduced motivation to eat. Having dabbled a little in appetite work over the last few years the one thing that I do now know is that appetite is very, very complex.

Emergent ontological antireductionism across the scales
To Belfast for the NS Summer Conference for “Translational Nutrition: Integrating Research Practice and Policy” and a bit of general shindiggery. I use summer in the loosest sense. The two symposia which were held today were in the areas of “Innovation in diet and lifestyle assessment” and “intervention study design and personalised nutrition”, and we heard plenary lectures from Profs Bruce German and David Jacobs.
