Comments: Give this Guy a Medal!

I also notice that the soup experiment is done using - students!!!! Has this guy ever figured out that a "starving" college student might just volunteer to be a taste tester in order to save on a few food bills...

Not to mention the fact - not everyone who eats alot is overweight. My kids are excellent examples. They have always been able to eat whatever they want, whenever they want. And most annoyingly gain no weight! I was the only mother I knew who didn't tell my kids, no you can't have a snack, we're eating in half an hour. They could eat the snack and eat dinner - no problem. Often my son would eat dinner with a friend and come home and eat dinner with us too.

So these type of generalizations always make my hair stand on end!

I concur with Teresa. I'm pretty much a "eat what I want" kind of guy. The thing is, between binges, I simply "don't want". I know what an empty stomach feels like, and if I don't feel it, I don't eat.

I guess some people let their mouths tell them when to eat instead of their stomachs.

actually, when I speak to people that visited the United States, they all speak in awe about the size of food portions in the US. Really, you guys just eat more as the average European, and not because we don't have enough :-)
