Welcome to the FTS family, NimexDoll!!! :) :) :) :) :) :)

You're correct! ;D

Food is only "fuel" for the body, and no more.
But if we do not eat enough "fuel" (food), we will run out of "gas" (energy).

Sometimes we simply need to go back to the basics and re-read :0

Wow - what an incredible discussion - reads like a mini book or e-book I guess :). I fully admit to having a large appetite.  And I have (had) a sweet tooth to boot.  Now that I'm adding in resistance training I'm learning more and more about food as fuel. 

By chance my hubby and I met this incredibly ripped gentleman and we had a crazy off the cuff discussion about what he's done to have such a lean body weight with an amazing amount of muscle mass.  He was like a photo out of a magazine.  He said he went thru extensive body testing to get his lean body mass, fat, etcetera.  Then this lab did calculations for him on what he needed for fuel.  Macronutrients such as protein, carbs and fats.  And to his surprise he needed much less protein than what a typical body builder needed.  He kept his carbs under 30 grams and the rest - fat!  If I recall correctly it was a huge amount but for his size I'm sure it fit.  He likes eating this way because his mood stays even, his energy is high and he can go hours without food!

Hi, Sunshine! :)

Since I was a little boy, and most of my life, I've had a VERY large appetite.
I've learned to control it by paying close attention to what and how much I eat.
This became possible thanks to Doug and the FTS lifestyle he brought to us.

It's now second nature to me to not eat much more than I need.
On a seldom occasion, I will eat a bit too much. And I immediately feel sick when I do.
That has helped reprogram my eating desires.

That gentleman in excellent physical condition provides more evidence that debunks the myth, that fat makes fat.
In fact, we know that the reverse is actually true.

Many in the FTS family (including myself) have found that increasing fat intake while reducing protein and carbs (less then 20 net/day) will accelerate weight loss progress.

We also have found that eating too much food (especially proteins) can cause weight gain due to a natural, metabolic process called gluconeogenesis. By that process, our bodies increase our blood sugar (glucose) levels which in turn, leads to weight gain.
