That is not what I meant at all about the calories not counting. The calories are still 100% calories and they add up just like any calories. It's just that somehow consuming them in this way makes them sort of invisible to your consciousness and your body can take over and assert its role as the master regulator and automatically put a brake on your more-or-less conscious desire to eat more than you need.
