|See how skinny she's getting? See the stack of books she's reading?|
Literature can be powerful, have I mentioned that before?
Even though the book sounded utterly BORING. Which, I guess, suggests reading could also make you fatter if you read an equally boring book that promoted unhealthy lifestyles. Or you could read an interesting book and perhaps magically loose weight anyway. Because the authors of the study didn't use a second control group of girls who read a very exciting book that had nothing whatsoever to do with weight loss and compare their weight at the end of the study. So maybe it really was the reading itself that made everyone skinnier. Why not? Reading uses brain power, which--who knows?--probably burns a few calories, especially if your heart rate goes up in exciting parts. I'm choosing to believe that the magic potion was the reading itself. But whatever.
