Thanks for the link. I thought about what was happening to me and everything revolved around carbs for me personally. I could eat endless carbs, they made me constantly hungry.
I have reduced them and cut out virtually all together bread and pasta. I even take croutons off now at restaurants.
After looking at a number of recent articles I added coconut oil to my diet. I personally like intense cheese and it is super flavor filled, more than any potato chip, and a little fills me up.
Clearly, to me at least, the fat is the problem hypothesis was a disaster in the U.S. Heart disease, diabetes, and obesity all went UP when Americans started doing this and cutting their fat.
It doesn't take a Ph.D. to say hey we need to reevaluate this. Just common sense. That being said, it is more than one thing but glad UC is on board now and thanks again for the link.
And a calorie is a calorie argument really frustrates me. If carbs were making me hungrier than..no it wasn't just that calorie, it was all the other calories that it led to. And if all the carb calories were messing up my metabolism and spiking my insulin and then having the bulk of those calories stored as fat then no they were not just like any other calories.
Doing the coconut for about a week and feel awesome. It is REALLY feeling and yummy and versatile. I hate to put too much in short term stuff but down 3-4 pounds this week.
