"The fact that fat stimulates your appetite (when you’re already eating so much) supports the theory that your body needs more fat. Just like low carbers whose bodies are desperate for carbs, and who go nuts once they have one bite of bread,…"
"This is quite a post! OK, as I see it, there are three areas for discussion here - correct me if I'm wrong:

"Well done for getting yourself back onto a healthy path. Good for you!
