I have a feeling Dr. Fuhrman brain's physiology is able to calculate calories to energy. Dr. Fuhrman was a world class ice skating athlete. Doug Lisle shares in _How to Lose Weight Without Losing Your Mind_ about a World War II pilot that had supper excellent vision. He was able to see enemy planes before the other pilots. He used this story to share about the people who are able to eat and not gain weight. Their brain is able to calculate how many calories they need for energy. He shares hey aren't the norm, we are:)
I have to add, that I did very well on Dr. Fuhrman's diet... though I found myself transferring my addiction to money.. shopping, preparing, storing, etc. What I like about Dr. McDougall's plan is the satiety of the starch, the transferring of my addiction lightens up, and where in sharing with others I know it too is a possibility for them. Stress of having or not having enough is entangled with the stress hormone cortisol, which won't kill you, but creates a portal for disease.
Jeff Novick's _Calorie Density_ dvd.. makes the template of what to eat really clear as he shares the higher calorie density foods are the ones that are easy to overeat. With the satiety of the starch, the choices of how I eat/feel is up to my body, as I feel it is the best lab there is. The body doesn't lie. Food then becomes like air and water, where CR is a given.

The video can also be purchased through the store and is excellent to share, especially with people without a computer. Service is the ultimate end to all hunger and Dr. McDougall is the epitome of service:) where money is not like musical chairs, there is enough for everyone.
