Slightly off subject but my 2 cents worth. A lot of people eliminate most or all the fat in their diet when trying to lose weight. Since Fat has 9 calories per grams and Carbs and Protein have only 4 this makes sense. But Fat has been shown in studies to help suppress and appetite and satiate hunger. It is my belief that people that follow a low/no fat diet are always hungry (regardless of their calorie intake). Using healthy fats like almonds or peanut butter in moderation can help keep those cravings under control. Use whole eggs, not egg whites for their naturally occuring fats.
