David A Kessler, in his book,
the End of Overeating has
explained why a subset of the population
has a problem.
The essence of the problem is:
High Palatable food is screwing up
satiation in susceptible people.
I am one.
After much muttering about,
clearly defining ever "big" word,
we are a phenotype
(a subset of the population) which:
lack food eating resistance,
lose control of eating,
and are preoccupied with food.
We represent 50% of the obese,
30% of the overweight,
17% of normal weight people.
The solution is to exclude all
"highly palatable" food from our diet.
So WTF are "highly palatable" foods?
All manufactured products,
aka --layered fats, sugars, and salt,
on a bit of protein or carbohydrates,
all food that combine fats with
starches or carbohydrates,
all foods contain more than trace sugars.
Sounds like Zoe Harcombe diet... sort of.
Few natural food contain both sugar and fats.
But the acid test is to come,
does it work for me?
This is not a big change for me:
no salad dressing,
no butter on vegetables
no ketchup, not even the dab that I use.
But this is not how he expresses it all.
In his detailed, pleasant and positive manner,
the message is almost lost.
