So really, not really a huge calorie difference, especially when you consider that the higher fat content creates better satiation. For coffee, 2 tbsp of half-and-half is 37 calories, and that amount of heavy cream is 101.<br> * Kit mentioned Leo: that’s Leo Notenboom of <a href="https://askleo.com">askleo.com</a>.<br> * Kit talked about her Camino de Santiago walk in the <a href="https://thisistrue.com/podcast038-cant-hold-us/">previous episode</a>.<br> * And we talked about our ADD (we aren’t “hyperactive” so we prefer that term over ADHD) in <a href="https://thisistrue.com/podcast013-add-made-true-possible/">episode 13</a>.<br> * That breakfast is the “most important meal that gets the day started” was first published in 1917, in Good Health magazine. And who edited that magazine? John Harvey Kellogg, the director of a Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan, which was founded by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. He and his brother invented corn flakes in 1894. (They’re terrible on purpose: his development of a bland diet was driven in part by the Adventist goal of reducing “sexual stimulation.”)<br> * Randy misspoke on one thing about table sugar. It is sucrose, which is roughly 50-50 glucose and fructose. And indeed, high-fructose corn syrup is 45 percent glucose and 55 percent fructose. And, indeed, glucose is mostly metabolized in the mitochondria, while fructose is metabolized almost exclusively by the liver.<br> <br> <a name="subscribe"></a><br> How to Subscribe<br> Search for Uncommon Sense in your podcast app or on <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/uncommon-sense-the-this-is-true-podcast/id1259380128">iTunes</a>, or manually enter this feed URL into your app: https://thisistrue.com/feed/podcast<br> Also available via <a href="https://playmusic.app.goo.gl/?ibi=com.google.PlayMusic&amp;isi=691797987&amp;ius=googleplaymusic&amp;link=https://play.google.com/music/m/Ixj6haluiswf4e5wiw4qksmlzni?t%3DUncommon_Sense:_the_This_is_True_Podcast%26pcampaignid%3DMKT-na-all-co-pr-mu-pod-16">Google Play</a>, <a href="https://player.fm/series/uncommon-sense-the-this-is-true-podcast-1496500">PlayerFM</a>, <a href="https://beta.tunein.com/radio/Uncommon-Sense-the-This-is-True-Podcast-p1015540/">TuneIn</a>, <a href="https://podfanatic.com/podcast/uncommon-sense-the-this-is-true-podcast">Podfanatic</a>,
