Wow. I've done really good about not having any cakes donuts or brownies for a month now, and not even having cravings for them- but when I saw that picture, I wanted it so bad, and my carrots actually started to smell sweet like a donut... that's scary lol.

The book THE END OF OVEREATING by Dr. David Kessler goes into this in depth. It's availabe at Amazon and also at many libraries. It will really open your eyes to the food industry and how they manipulate the market...

JayEll beat me to the punch. I also highly recommend Dr. Kessler's book. It started me on my current weight loss journey by getting me to cut out junk food, cold turkey.

i'm not even going to read the article. I don't need to be reminded how much "food porn" tastes soooo good.

I do know you can get the same benefit FROM GOOD FATS.

I love avocado, nuts, olives, and butter--yes, i said butter. REAL butter. no margarine here- blech. butter is NOT the best for you--but it is better than margarine.

your neurons are surrounded by a fatty acid sheath called myelin. This myelin makes neurotransmitters faster and more efficient-clarity of thought--you need GOOD FATS.

I don't hold back on the fats. i even subsitute meat exchanges for nuts.
