Athletes and Hunger: Do we eat because we are hungry?

I caught myself considering buying a set of titanium bolts for my racing machine. You save 5 grammes – has to be worth it! At the very latest when the climb gradient reaches double figures, we curse every gramme which helps our physical enemy, gravity to make life hard for us. It is almost a meditative therapy to imagine ordering the pretty package, opening it and replacing the steel bolts in the evening in the workshop.
