Weighing Food and Trying to Eat Smaller Portions Is Futile

Earlier 1 compared 100 calories of greens with 100 calories of meat. 1
did not contrast them by weight or by portion size, as is more cus­ tomary. I compared equal caloric portions because it is meaningless to compare foods by weight or portion size. Let me provide an example to explain why this is the case. Take one teaspoon of melted butter, which gets 100 percent of its calories from fat. If 1 take that teaspoon of butter and mix it in a glass of hot water, I can now say that it is 98 per­ cent fat-free, by weight. One hundred percent of its calories are still from fat. It didn't matter how much water or weight was added, did it?
In fact, if a food's weight were important, it would be easy to lose weight, we would just have to drink more water. The water would trigger the weight receptors in the digestive tract and our appetite would diminish. Unfortunately, this is not the way our body's appc-stat —  the brain center in the hypothalamus that controls food in­ take — is controlled. As explained in chapter one, bulk, calories, and nutrient fulfillment, not the weight of the food, turn off our appestat. Since the foods Americans consume are so calorie-rich, we have all been trying to diet by eating small portions of low-nutrient foods. We not only have to suffer hunger but also wind up with perverted crav­ ings because we are nutrient-deficient to boot. We must consume a certain level of calories daily to feel satisfied. So now I ask you to completely rethink what you consider a typical portion  size.  To achieve  superior health  and a  permanently thin physique, you should eat large portions of green foods. When con­ sidering any green plant food, remember to make the portion size huge by conventional standards. Eating large portions of these superhealthy foods is the key to your success.
