I have read "Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It" by Gary Taubes. My current diet (first one I have been able to stick with in 10 years) is based on cutting out the sugar, white flour and white rice and I can attest that the study you reference is correct.
Not only do I feel satisfied after a meal but also when I become hungry again it is not the desperate eat anything right this minute hunger I knew before.
Since I am 59 and in poor health, I am aiming for a slow weight loss of 1-1.5 pounds per week and achieving it with manageble effort. I can envision that in a year or two I will achieve my ideal weight having already adopted the lifestyle I will keep for the rest of my life.View Thread
