Review: Why we get fat

A great book about how our body works in relation to accumulation of fat tissue. Basically the books explains why counting calories and exercise don't make you loose fat, at least directly. The way our body burns fat is when is in a ketosis state that you can achieve when not eating sugars and carbs.
See ketogenic diet for more information.

Review: The Richest Man in Babylon

A very simple read. Nothing special but a nice reminder about how to manage your finances.

1: Keep a part of all you earn. Save at least 10% of your income.

2: Put your savings to work for you. Invest it so that it will multiply.

3: Avoid debt. The poor pay interest, while the rich earn interest.

4: Don’t speculate in get-rich-quick schemes. Invest in solid businesses that you understand.

5: Invest in yourself. Gain knowledge and skills to increase your earning power.

6: Safeguard your growing fortune with diversification and insurance.
