    The "eat lots of fibre because it keeps you full!" always pissed me off because it has never actually worked. Fibre makes me feel sick and bloated, but keep me full it does not! Read through the comments as well and someone suggested boiling your eggs so you can eat the whites, and feed the yolks to your dogs or cats. But I'm not surprised! This was pretty typical health advice from The Huffington Post.

    Argh! My partner had hypoglycemia problems his whole life, and going primal fixed it because he's stopped trying to deal with crashes by eating sugar--eating enough fat has been like magic for him.

    I don't understand how CW people don't grasp that a constant rollercoaster is probably not the ideal way to live.

    Actually, for the HuffPo, that article is pretty good. There's a lot of research into the relationship between the brain and eating, and no, it's not as simple as just eating butter and having only safe foods in the house or people who started on primal would never post about their food cravings. There's a lot of good evidence that mindfulness and techniques such as tracking are very effective tools for people who are trying to overcome cravings and emotional eating issues.

    But plenty of fat and protein in the morning is better than all that. It makes the behavioral stuff work, and/or unnecessary, because the cravings GO AWAY.

    Lovin' life without thinking about food all day anymore.

    I visited a friend in the hospital about a week ago. He was in the ICU after a quadruple bypass surgery. For lunch the nurse brought him the following: A large roll with a tiny piece of ham & Kraft cheese, a box of apple juice, a few iceberg lettuce leaves with tons of LITE ranch dressing, a tiny danish and some candied trail mix that I couldn't ID. The mantra I kept hearing from his "team" was that 'we gotta get you on the right track and obliterate that FAT that got you here'. I noticed other people bringing McD shakes, Snicker bars and other such items to their loved ones in the other cubicles. That's hospital 'care' for you.

    Kinda sounds like someone saying "I dumped the Marlboros, now I'm on Menthol Lights".

    Truth. I remember buying Fiber One bars and keeping them stashed in my glove compartment. Never really worked. Not sure why it took me so long to figure it out, except that I just thought I was "broken" and the best I could do was temporarily fix it with a granola band-aid.

    When I had surgery two weeks ago (undoing the bariatric surgery I ignorantly had a few years ago), they feed me nothing but liquid sugar and salt for almost the whole time I was there. I had to beg for a cup of 2% milk (and they wound up bringing me skim) and they got upset because I kept refusing to drink the juice that was clearly marked HFCS

    Except that for some people, that doesn't seem to work. Satiety is great, but if a person has issues with emotional eating, that doesn't necessarily solve the whole problem.
