The gist is: "The researchers believe low-calorie versions of usually high-calorie foods disrupt the body's ability to use taste to regulate calorific intake."

Any thoughts on this? Do high-cal foods taste that different from low-cal foods?

They taste a lot better. Hence if I am going to splurge, I'm going to eat the best quality stuff possible. Ice cream made with cream, not vegetable fat. Chocolate with a high cocoa content and cocoa butter, rather than that mockolate cack made with artifical sweeteners and more vegetable fat. And so on.

its teh same idea that eating all those low or no fat products lead to eating alot more of it. your body just doesnt know when to stop.

I mean do they taste that different in relation to the body figuring out how many cals they are? I reckon I could eat the same amount of full fat chips as I could low fat chips, and feel the same...

I don't think it is taste at all. I think you eat something that you think is "good for you" and then you think, "oh I can have this other junk because I ate the good stuff already." I have friends who do that all the time. They get a salad for dinner (with fried chicken and lots of dressing) and then feel as though they have earned a large piece of chocolate cake for dessert!

Simple solution; for me, at least. Don't eat fake foods. Either eat healthy foods or unhealthy foods. Don't try to trick unhealthy foods into thinking they're healthy(ier). It doesn't work, and that's where all those nasty chemical sweeteners come in.

that is so funny because i always wear sweaters to hide them until right before the workout and i NEVER wear sleeveless shirts outside the gym. only a crossfitter would think MY arms look good!

that is just it. how can you compare what a rat thinks tastes good to human tastes and psychology? i had a rat problem in an apartment one time, and i swear that rat ate my dishwashing detergent!

Might as well pay the price for the real thing and enjoy it than feel cheated from something half-arse.

Anna, don't be ashamed about those arms, show'm off! It's somewhat disheartening to hear such a comment. I hear similar things from women at times and makes me think what kind of wacky standards are in our society.

A 15yo girl on Friday told me she didn't want to do any more squats because she felt she was starting to show muscles in her legs. It really made me think WTF. While she is in shape, her vertical jump is only 14" at 5'6" . Nothing stellar, but she was worried about it.
