Donut Holes in the Twilight Zone

SEELEY, Wisconsin. Somewhere way back I think I read that the “bonk”, brought on by glycogen depletion, is pretty much all in your head. You really have not lowered the level of glycogen to a point where it physically starves the muscles of energy. Instead, the brain has a safety mechanism that kicks in way before this happens, causing all of the familiar mental anguish that effectively keeps you from really hurting yourself. I have no idea whether this is true or not, but I can attest to the fact that my brain has never let me down when it comes to suffering.
