An accident. I saw it on proggit, and the first thing I did was check the front page to see if it was already here so I could read the comments and maybe add my 2c. I assumed it would already have been posted, I just failed to assume it would have been posted 171 days ago!
As for the one page thing, isn't that the "standard?" If not, please post the printable versions or one page versions of stories like this. Why page through an article just to cause exaggerated page views and ad impressions for someone with an old-school magazine business model???
Most people eat large quantities of food all at once. Stop half way and wait 20 minutes and you might not be hungry anymore. If you eat too quickly then you don't know at what point you'd eaten enough to satisfy your hunger.
You change your behavior, taking into account that your hunger point is lying to you.
You stop eating before you feel full.
You look up how many calories you should be eating and how much you want to lose. (3500 calories = 1 pound of fat; if you maintain a 500 calorie deficit every day, you'll lose a pound a week).
You weigh yourself every day, using signal processing techniques to remove random variations in your weight caused by water and reveal the trendline of where your weight is headed.
You then adjust your consumption based on where your weight is headed. Trendline sloping upwards? Eat fewer calories.
If you do this for a long time, your hunger point may change. It may not. But you don't care about your hunger point, you care about eating the right amount of food. The key insight is to realize that your hunger point may be lying to you, so you need to get an accurate hunger point. Walker describes how to do this in his book, combining signal processing with dieting.
