    No grains, but otherwise I eat all sorts of carby foods in large amounts. I'm doing well, I think.

    That's probably true as well. I doubt there is a single reason why native people are not overweight, given that their lives are different from ours in just about everything. But there are places in...

    As far as I understand, the point of the food reward theory is not that tasty food makes you overeat. It is that a certain combination of ingredients (in particular, fat, sugar and salt) triggers an...

    I've had nothing but failure with the first choice. It's the second one for me. I think the key is balance -- to make your diet pleasant enough so you don't burn yourself out, but to avoid...

    It doesn't seem right that a squash would trigger a sugar binge. Maybe the problem is not specific to sugar; your body just needs more food, or more of different nutrients. Couldn't you be trying to...

    +1
    I'm sure I would binge on sweets too if I couldn't eat fruit.

    I was 200 lb, now 125 lb. Lots of fat, low-carb doesn't work well for me. I prefer more fruit, more starchy tubers and less fat. I almost always eat at home, simple meals I cook myself. I don't count...

    Thanks! I've decided against leg amputation, because I can't do one-leg squats either. :(

    Maybe I can slowly lose 10 more pounds and get to 115 lb and become really skinny, but I think a leg still weighs more than that. :)

    I want to be added to the list, though I ask myself if this is feasible at all unless I chop a leg or two off.

    Horsewoman, are you exercising every day? Two things are guaranteed to decrease insulin resistance: weight loss and exercise. If I were you, I would eat whenever I'm hungry, even if you are hungry 10...

    Sweet potatoes, cassava (yucca), potatoes, fruit (all kinds). No grains for me, I don't like the supposedly healthier ones.

    I don't log what I eat either, I only log my exercise. I already know which foods are high in calories and if I want to lose weight, I'm not going to eat lots of bacon and add a ton of butter to...

    As a woman, I'm talking about 2-3 small/medium potatoes. Five would also make my stomach burst, but half a small one is just teasing.

    That was what I was going to suggest too. Sweet potatoes are fat-free low-calorie foods. It's not the same as eating fatty meat. You've got to eat more of them if you don't want to be hungry soon.

    This post is a bit old, but I've just read it. A couple of months ago I got some of these potatoes by accident and was excited. They were really pretty in an alien way. I roasted them alongside...

    I think there's this idea that if you don't buy Taubes's arguments, you necessarily believe in low-calorie low-fat high-grain diets and thus are evil.

    Yes, I've read GCBC. I've also read all the...

    Well, the bias here is almost always to implicate carbs and I just thought I should point that out. We all have our biases.
