Program - How to Be Slim
I wasn't sure exactly where to put this...

I ran across a program that was originally on BBC entitled "How to Be Slim". What impressed me is that the information they presented was based on a myriad of scientific studies.

The link to the show is here:

The link to the website related to the show:

There were numerous studies they brought up. The general points I got from the program were:

-Overweight individuals generally have a higher metabolism not lower
-Calcium can help the body process fat better
-Evidence of what an individual has already consumed can deter someone from eating more. Food diaries are a form of evidence that can deter overeating.
-People consume more if they are given a large portion size
-Protein is better at staving hunger than carbohydrates and/or fat
-Drinking water doesn't have a lasting effect on hunger but adding water to food to make a soup definitely does.

Interesting - they repeated a lot of the studies Brian Wansink led at the Cornell Food and Brand lab and wrote about in "Mindless Eating"...the popcorn experiment, the chicken-bones experiment...fascinating stuff!
