And LOL thanks Julie. He's actually perfectly capable of feeding himself, just gets lazy (that "learned helplessness" perhaps?) and needs me to prod and guide him while he cooks his lunches.

Sounds like it could be serotonin then.
"In the brain, serotonin regulates circulation and mitochondrial function, temperature, respiration and appetite, alertness and learning, secretion of prolactin, growth hormones and stress hormones, and participates in the most complex biochemical webs."

You're right 2ndChance!
He absolutely fakes dementia when it comes to making
his own damn lunch., but yeah, if I want him to eat
HEALTHY FOODS, then I guess MAWMA has to pack it
So up I get at 6:20 to make lunch for 45yo, 10yo and 8yo... hahahaha!
@unchantenfrance - you're welcome, any time!
I could be a human garbage disposal as well, where my husband is like yours
and "gets full" fairly quickly.
I can pork down dinner and be ready for a mess of chocolate for dessert, but when
offered to him, he says "oh wow, I can't I'm full".
What? Seriously? People get full when there's chocolate in the house?
I think it's time to phone my attorney because I'm pretty sure that's grounds
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

He KNOWS what food is good and what food is bad. But we can't afford grassfed so we just buy the best possible meat and dairy we can at the moment, which more often than not is CAFO. But none of this seems to be affecting me. My mental clarity, motivation and immune system positively kick his ass. (I'm not kidding - he gets sick 3-4 times a year. In the 5 years we've been together I have gotten sick only twice - each time from him - while he gets sick on a fairly regular basis).
And thanks for the article, Derpamix. I'll have to read it tonight.
I wouldn't worry about the meat, lean cuts have less o6, and I don't buy grass-fed at all. I doubt the burgers anywhere are really fatty cuts, as those are usually too pricey.
Also, balancing out muscle meats with gelatin is helpful. Glycine has anti-serotonin actions, and Knox gelatin is dirt cheap and has more glycine due to the fact it's both porcine and bovine.
