For years, I tried everything imaginable to lose the weight, the problem was that my appetite was out of control. I felt there was something wrong with me as my appetite was 3x that of a normal person.
Once I stumbled across an article about high fructose corn syrup, I was shocked at what I read. Apparantly it shuts off your brains function that normally tells you that you're full. While hard to believe, once I stopped taking it, my appetite was about a third of what once was!
It will take about 2 weeks to see the difference. Make sure to check your labels very carefully as it is in everything from white bread to yogurt to soda. I even found it in a few wheat breads. One can of soda will put you over the safe limit. Do a google search on hfcs, it is very eye opening.
Last year we had a horrific infestation of big ugly flies. It was night time and my husband noticed that the flies were attracted to the light. He had an idea: He turned off all the lights except the one in the dining room; then he went around the house and swooshed at the flies with a dish towel. All the flies headed for the light. Next he turned on the light in the kitchen and turned off the light in the dining room. He repeated the process, herding all the flies into the kitchen.
Then, he turned on the light in the mud room, and turned off the light in the kitchen. Same thing... the flies were all herded into the mud room. Finally he turned on back porch light and turned off the light in the mud room and herded all the flies right out the door! 104
