Fascinating article.

I found on my recent success journey that chemistry, choosing the right foods for me has been key. I have shed weight especially belly fat. I am eating fewer calories, and MUCH less hungry.

And I know I've radically changed my metabolism. Before I had very low capacity to burn fat and carbs were addictive and I was ravenous after eating carbs.

Now I eat so many fewer junk carbs. But when I do have a bunch at say a Mexican restaurant I stay hungry so much longer. And I've lost a lot since January. Wildly exceeded my expectations. Am I naturally thin? No. I was 'stout' throughout childhood. But by going low carb high fat I've come to find a diet that keeps full, healthy, strong, and losing weight.

Also found this on the page. Great short video with basic but vital info.

This is exactly what happened to me. Good news by going LCHF I have reawakened my metabolism. So even when I do have carbs now my body can handle carbs and I don't get hungry. Obviously though I can't go back to before nor do I want to. My metabolism would just go back to bad again.
