Default Why that big meal you just ate made you hungry (wall street journal)


Every few months, a new study purports to prove that a calorie is a
calorie is a calorie, and that the only way to lose weight is to burn
more than you take in.

But veteran dieters know something that some researchers apparently
don't: Certain foods seem to fuel the appetite like pouring gasoline
on a fire. Some people find that once they start eating bread,
cookies, chocolate, potato chips -- or leftover Easter candy -- they
lose all sense of fullness and find it difficult to stop.

That's the concept behind "The Skinny," a new book by Louis J. Aronne,
longtime director of the Comprehensive Weight Loss Program at NewYork
Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. He makes the best
case yet why what you eat and when you eat it can make a big
difference in appetite, satiety and how much willpower it takes to cut
down. "It's true that a calorie is a calorie," Dr. Aronne says. "But
what that doesn't take into account is how some calories affect what
people eat later on."

After 23 years of treating patients -- some of it espousing liquid
diets -- Dr. Aronne has concluded that refined carbohydrates and foods
with high sugar and fat content promote what he calls "fullness
resistance." They interfere with the complex hormonal messages the
body usually sends to the brain to signal that it's time to stop
eating. People feel hungrier instead.
This happens in part because refined carbohydrates raise blood-sugar
levels, setting up an insulin surge that drives blood sugar down
again, causing rebound hunger. That insulin spike also interferes with
leptin, the hormone secreted by fat cells that should tell the body to
stop eating. Obese people have loads of leptin, but it either doesn't
get to the brain, or the brain becomes resistant to it. "This is not a
failure of willpower, it's a physical mechanism," Dr. Aronne writes.
The body also becomes resistant to insulin, setting the stage for
