Hunger research

Does oil effect hunger in a significant way?

Paleo is against any form of seed oil intake, but when I went "paleo" my weight loss stabilized. I was ready for it at that time, but over the last 2 years I have gained a bunch and am always hungry. I ate two eggs fired in Canola oil, a side salad with dressing for lunch, late afternoon, sardines in soy oil, or tuna, or salmon can, and then supper, meat with salad, cabbage, with dressing, and was not  to hungry. That diet did not have much variation,  but it worked. Is it the oil?

Now a dab of oil would feed the digestive track first. Is it the first pass effect that keeps hunger at bay?

Note on Shangri la by Steven Parker, re: Evelyn Tribole, M.S., R.D

The aforementioned article brought to my attention by Evelyn Tribole suggests how olive oil and other unsaturated fats could curb hunger. Oleic acid, a prominent monounsaturated fatty acid in olive oil, is transformed into oleoylethanolamide (OEA) in the small intestine. OEA then activates a brain circuit that gives you a feeling of fullness, reducing appetite, and potentially promoting weight loss. 

It is more about keeping hunger at bay then fullness.

Shangri la diet, Seth Roberts, comment by 3FC, This diet might work for the 6% of overweight people that overeat due to true, physical hunger, and are open to the idea that they can suppress their appetites through oil or sugar water.

Could I be part of that 6%?

Day one of the test today.
