I made it through 45 minutes. The start was a bit simplistic I thought because not every calorie that goes into your mouth gets absorbed and fats are much less likely to be absorbed that liquid sugars. I am wondering if taking fats out of foods reduced the satiation mechanism.

Here is why: through the Harvard nurse study they found out that drinking diet soda was linked to weight gain. Further study showed that artificial sweeteners broke the body's link between intake of sweets and satiation. In other words Diet Coke can increase your desired intake of food.

ETA: We are just beginning to understand mechanisms of satiation. And we now know that diet soft drinks actually contribute to weight gain and the Atkins diet works better than most...so the whole 'low fat' thing was either innocently wrong headed or a more coordinated scam.
