Brain vs stomach: why dieting is so hard Dean Burnett



The debate over whether fat is actually bad for our health overlooks a more fundamental issue: if we know something is bad for us, why cant we stop eating it? The weird relationship between our brains and digestive systems holds the answer

A recent report by the National Obesity Forum stated that official advice about low-fat diets is wrong. As ever, theres now heated debate over how valid/accurate this claim is. But lets step back a moment and ask a revealing question; why do official government dietary guidelines even exist? Why are they necessary?

From an entirely logical position, eating food fulfils several requirements. It provides the energy to do things, helps us build up stores of energy for when needed, and provides the materials required to build and maintain our bodies. Therefore, the human body requires a regular intake of nutrients, vitamins and calories to maintain day-to-day functioning. As a result, the human body has developed an intricate digestive system to monitor and regulate our food intake.

Golden State dodged disaster when Draymond Green escaped a ban



The Warriors need their forwards fury nearly as much as Stephen Currys genius. They will be relieved he has not been punished for his kick on Steven Adams

Ask those around the Golden State Warriors what Draymond Green means to them and they say their undersized power forward gives us our edge. The rest of the teams top players like Steph Curry and Klay Thompson do not let anger drive them. They win with confidence and savvy. Green is their fire. He is their enforcer.

What he did to Oklahoma City center Steven Adams on Sunday night was not a basketball play. No amount of exaggerated flailing justifies an extra thrust of the knee into another mans groin. Even he seemed to understand that as he repeatedly tried to justify his actions while protesting that he didnt intend to hit Adams in the unmentionables.

Andy Murray fights back to beat Stepanek in five sets at French Open



British No1 wins 3-6, 3-6, 6-0, 6-3, 7-5
Murray recovers from two sets down to move into second round

Andy Murray is still in this French Open, but he had to fight to the very last point to see off the determined and unexpectedly artful challenge of the Czech veteran Radek Stepanek when they resumed their unfinished match on Court Philippe Chatrier on Tuesday.

The Scot won 3-6, 3-6, 6-0, 6-3, 7-5 and said courtside: He had a serious back injury last year that kept him out for nine months. Its unbelievable to be doing that at 37. I dont think I will be doing that at that age.

How the Bundesliga's once-motoring clubs Wolfsburg and Stuttgart stalled



They have both won the Bundesliga in the last decade but VfB Stuttgart are now coming to terms with relegation and VfL Wolfsburg are in need of a new identity

By Jason Humphreys for Englische Woche, part of the Guardian Sport Network

On an uncharacteristically cold May afternoon in Munich, the Bundesliga season drew to a close and despite the nippy temperatures, Bayern Munichs players followed up their routine 3-1 victory over Hannover by chasing each other around the pitch with oversized glasses of Weizenbier as they celebrated their fourth league championship in a row, and three in three under Pep Guardiola.

About 600km to the north, another 3-1 home victory for the 2009 champions, VfL Wolfsburg, over the 2007 champions, VfB Stuttgart, confirmed that Stuttgart would be relegated to the second tier for only the second time in their history. Despite the home team taking all three points, there were no beer showers in the Volkswagen Arena. This game did little more than put two sets of fans out of their misery.
