    Hell why don't we just eat MOAR IODINE while sitting in a cold bath for MOAR time and publishing even MOAR obscure leptin blood test results, and hit the trifecta.

    Potatoes, eggs, meat, whatever. Limiting yourself to one food will result in weight loss almost all the time for one reason - lack of palatability/food reward.

    4. Limit choices, not amounts.

    Studies show that when people are presented with multiple food-choices, they eat more. In fact, calorie intake during a buffet scales almost linearly with the amount of different foods to choose from. If I offered you unlimited amounts of turkey and cheesecake, you'd likely only eat so much of it before you felt "full" and satisfied.

    However, if I threw a third food into the mix, like potatoes or chocolate pudding, you'd end up eating a lot more - even if you weren't a fan of potatoes or chocolate pudding in normal circumstances. Humans are wired a bit funny and some behaviors are maladaptive in our environment of excesses. Having a taste of everything was a good strategy during our evolution, since it protected again micronutrient-deficiencies.

    By "mentally limiting" the food choices you allow yourself, i.e. only eating that which you absolutely love and crave, can be a very effective strategy in regulating calorie intake without feeling deprived. Remember, you don't need to taste of every damn food or treat that is offered. Stick to that which you truly enjoy eating and skip the rest.
    Quoted for truth. The more options you have, the more you will want to eat. Humans are hardwired to "try everything." You know that guy at the dessert table that just has to "try a piece of everything" even though they're already stuffed from dinner. He'd be more than happy with a slice of chocolate cake. But there's also pound cake, apple pie and ice cream. You gotta try a piece of each, and the apple pie has to be a la mode.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    I like the MOAR threads, a bit of intertextuality suggests harmony on the forums. I think they've run their course, the latest one being slightly ironic.

    I've read them all, it's been informative.
