    Not that I know of Dr. Ken. I definately see where you are going with it though, that would be something interesting to learn, although creating a control group would be tough because of all the little things that do effect body weight day to day.

    Great question!  I wonder if subtle changes in bodyweight could influence our behavior.  Strange things happen during the full moon, after all.

    Honestly Im not sure, but I am positive what does effect our body weight:
    Healthy diet and exercise.
    That would be funny though, Ugh looks like I put on a pound DANGIT the moon must be eclipsing tonight!

    I really bet it does. I haven't looked into any research, but the moon's stages have an effect ranging from dastic (tides) to subtle (mood swings... or maybe that's not so subtle after all.) So I sure could see how it could affect our eating/weight. What an interesting study it would be. I think nature and the shifts and changes inherent in it, has a lot greater affect on us than we even imagine, or give it credit for... Mother Nature is a real ... sometimes.

    That would depend on whether you werewolf your food down or not!
