Both lunches were 600 calories but vastly different consequences. That message can get lost if we just say a calorie is a calorie.
Well, you will certainly feel fuller on 200 cal broccoli than 200 cal potato chips.
200 cal broccoli is a lot of broccoli compared to what, less than a handful of chips?
ETA: Wanted to add, I agree with you in principle (as all of us are agreeing with each other) that a low carb diet can certainly work for many people as an approach to stop bingeing and to keep appetite in control
. That is your title and the message you are trying to get across, yes?
