    AGREE! I always remind people that hunger is a biologic drive that can only TEMPORARILY be deferred to a later time just like thirst, peeing and pooping. The longer those drives are deferred the stronger the impulse becomes until it is simply irresistible. HUNGER is no different. The type of food matters.

    And the type of food varies by individual...there's no one size fits all. Give us the information, and we'll decide.

    Love it! People tends to think we can control how much only; but as learnt here how much and cravings depende on what we eat. Great synthesis.

    I think feedback helps. The Ketonix is great for this, and every now and then a blood reading helps to back it up. The Ketonix is free to use once you have one. (I have no commercial association with Ketonix.)

    People should be free to determine their own diet but, as Tim Noakes's site says, everyone is entitled to their own opinion but not their own facts.

    ...everyone is entitled to their own opinion but not their own facts.

    Yes, too bad some of these dietitians and doctors who advise hclf weren't in possession of more facts. Doesn't seem to matter to them, they get paid the same if you live or die. A class action law suit would interfere with that pay and get their attention.
