Default I'm IFed out...not doing it but researching it

I just spent the past 3 weeks writing a paper on IF for one of my classes. I'm more confident in talkin about it with people, but i'm WORN out reading the stuff.

anyways one of the most interesting things i found was this:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17569758?ordinalpos=3&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez. Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPan el.Pubmed_RVDocSum

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18545695?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez. Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPan el.Pubmed_RVDocSum

basically males and females respond different to fasting and CR. men have a pretty straight forward genetic response to excess food or a lack thereof, but women have varying degrees of response. cognitive ability and testosterone levels rise in females when restricted. this could suggest why anorexic patients do well on cognitive tests.
