Quaker made "weight loss" oatmeal, which they advertised as "more filling." They put extra protien in it (yay!) but also put in sucralose (boo!) Stop hiding artifical sweetner in savory food!*

* I make this distinction, because diet soda kind of has to have artifial sweenter in it since it's nothign but water, sugar and flavour. I'm also find with people having choices, so as long as they advertise that it has the sweetner and give people options, I think that's great, but just kind of sneaking it in there... that's what I hate. *shakes fist at South Beach brand*

Agreed. My personal theory is there are many kinds of hunger. There is the psychological hunger, the nutritional hunger, blood sugar hunger and timed hunger (I'm sure there are more.)

For me, at least, extra protien does make me less hungry for the calories.

I get annoyed by the sneaking in of artificial sweeteners too... I guess they think they can't sell food unless it's very sweet. I personally am kind of nervous of the synthetic sweeteners and what their real longterm effect is - tiny molecules going places and connecting with different receptors we don't know about... I like good oldfashioned sugar - at least it's the devil we know.

I'm getting to the point where I don't even trust high fructose corn syrup. Sugar and honey, please or nothing at all.

Part of why I liked visiting Japan. They weren't so sweet obessed as North America.
