Half of them need lube.

Roughly speaking, one for each sense of taste?

The very best thing that happened to me, diet wise, was to develop a food allergy to soy. Soy is in freakin' EVERYTHING. I's cheap and the US overuses it. So I can never again eat 85% of ultra-processed foods or my throat will swell up. No more McDonalds, ever, for the rest of my life. I'm fine with this.

I miss spaghettio's, but that's about it.

Spaghettio's have always been my guilty pleasure comfort food, but then I made this recipe with ring pasta, and never looked back.

The five appetites are for protein, carbs, fats, sodium, and calcium.

And that's why a cheeseburger always sounds good.

Hmmm.
1) Beer
2) Wine
3) Liquor
4) The aforementioned lube-requiring activities
...

I only come up with four.

This is why pizza is the perfect food.

Wow, that test sounded really scientific and shiat.  Two WHOLE days.

"Ultra-processed foods make us fat, but not because we have strong appetites for the fats and carbs they contain, as is often thought to be the case. Rather, it is because our appetite for protein is stronger than our ability to limit fat and carb intake. So, when protein is diluted by fats and carbs, our appetite for it overwhelms the mechanisms that normally tell us to stop eating fats and carbs."

Your reader wants steak.

Aezetyr: TL;DR: Do eat a balanced diet of protein, carbs, fats and micronutrients. Don't eat junk shiat ultra-processed material like fast "food" or snacks.


Yet, if you read it, you find that a balanced diet that manages hunger drives requires a focus on protein to avoid hunger leading to overconsumption.

All based on logic, reason, and a 10 day study.  Nothing wrong with any of those three, but give me a few month at least. Otherwise you are showing at best a short response to a short adjustment. Do people need that level of protein, or did they train themselves to want it in that control period prior to being unleashed on the buffet? Would that craving have change a few days later? I don't know, but having done a variety of dietary adjusting over the years, cravings do seem to change 1 to 2 weeks into an adjustment. And they probably should have had a low protein group where instead of extra carbs, there was a shiatload of additional fiber or something to try to mimic the satiety gap.

We also have issues with food cost.  Even beans, the protein-iest of the plant community, often come out behind beef in protein per dollar. And once you navigate away from the 2-3 cheapest and most boring plants, your diet starts to get very expensive.

Thanks! I will try that and see how it measures up. (Coconut aminoes do a decent impression of soy sauce).

Well, that's not really the point of TFA, but it's good advice.

Buy your food raw.  Cook it yourself.  Don't depend on ultraprocessed food for meals.

(Snacks are OK, just don't only snack.)

You'll find that the meals are more satisfying and keep you sated longer than if you ate nothing but Hot Pockets, 7-Eleven Nachos, and Big Macs.

This is why fried chicken is so attractive.  Protein covered in carbs and salt, cooked in fat.

To add calcium, simply eat the wingtips or have a nice milkshake.
