LOL, Sabine, you are too funny!
Siobhan, I wasn't overly afraid of being hungry, but it's nice to experience it less. And yes, it's a politer hunger, more willing to sit and make small talk until meal time.
I couldn't finish my modest supper last night, was out all evening, went for "coffee" with people who were eating lasagna and bread and yogurt (all of them older, but very trim and healthy people, FWIW) and I didn't feel any deprivation or hunger or uncontrolled urges. Nice. The feeling of being in control of your appetite and food intake is easily just as good as the joys of scarfing down goodies. This is coming from somebody who really, really likes to eat.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
