    Hi folks,

    I'm quite new to the Peat world, and a particular topic that gets some attention
    in other dietary circles is the concept of hormesis. Some examples of this would
    be resistance training and short-term fasting: the judicious application of stressors
    in order to evoke a hormetic response. Sometimes this is called overcompensation,
    particularly when discussing resistance training.

    Since stress reduction is such a pervasive Peat theme, I'm quite curious to know
    what folks think.

    Regards,

    - Scott
