Yay for scientists confirming what we're experiencing! :D I definitely experienced the opposite with high GI meals. I used to eat two pkgs of instant oatmeal (with sugar) and a bagel (enriched flour) with light cream cheese every morning and be hungry in an hour or two. :fr: Now I can have a cup of cottage cheese and be full for hours. :shrug: Who knew?
