SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Your parents were onto something when they told you to eat your veggies first. Referencing a study that appeared in the journal Nutrients, Alabama dietitian Carolyn Williams says veggies can act like weight-loss drugs such as Ozempic and Wegovy, which signal to the body that it’s full. Scientists found that eating fiber-rich vegetables before carbohydrates makes you feel full longer, improves your blood sugar and could increase weight loss. This practice is called “meal sequencing”, and the study showed that even if someone ate faster, those who ate vegetables first had lower blood sugar after their meal than before – and lower insulin than those who began their meal by eating carbs.

The NFL is serious about expanding its influence to the international market. So serious, it’s considering holding a Super Bowl in London. Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke to a fan forum there last week to promote the Baltimore Ravens/Tennessee Titans regular season game in the city. While admitting such a move is not imminent, he said it has been considered. The league has featured regular season games in London, Germany and Mexico — and is said to be considering Spain and Brazil. A league official said it is also considering staging a game in Australia, although time zone constraints are a concern.

Kanye West wants the public to know he’s not bipolar, as he’s previously claimed — but he has “signs of autism” caused by his car crash in 2002. In a text-rant to Elon Musk, Kanye states: “You never have to speak to me again. But if we do speak. The nature of the relationship has to change. I’m not bi polar. I have signs of autism from my car accident.” The texts were posted by Ian Connor, who has run in Ye’s circle for years. He was apparently instructed by West to get the message out, as most of his social media accounts have been suspended. In another text to Musk, West wrote: “You can’t watch Kim keep my kids from me. And not say anything publicly, then call yourself my friend so I can bring my audience to your struggling platform.”
