Stimulation of appetite is counter productive in weight loss efforts. Blogs with pictures of food, recipes and the like will just be skipped, as I do not need appetite stimulus. In fact, I am not sure that that is not a major problem of all this studying obesity, that is stimulation of my own appetite.
The majority of weight loss occurs in the hours shortly before the next meal. Anything we do to extend the time between meals and snacks will help with weight loss. Weight loss is the result of a group of new behaviors extending the time between meals, reducing the amount of food, and reducing insulin levels, and avoiding hunger, and food cravings. Add to this effective dealing with food pushers (drug pushers) and food pushing social functions, and I should have more weight loss.
