I am sharing this "secret" while I remember to, and at the start of my journey. I have put secret in quotes because it looks like it was and has been staring people in the face for a long time. I don't mind if people call me kooky or strange or a bit nuts.
I decided after I worked out this formula to google this phenomenon to see if others have kind of noticed this too and found.

Ok so I was thinking how do I make a low calorie thick soup that was high in protein, then the light bulb moment, you don't need it to be a thick soup, it just has to be thick to keep the protein in your stomach for as long as you can.

Here is my theory
Protein switches off the hunger switch in the brain,
Fibre stays in your stomach for a long time
= get some low fat protein in the fibre and then you can feel full long on little calories.
As long as you make sure to have this often through your day, eating other things should not be a problem because you only "naturally" eat less

Miso is a great protein soup, or any of the continental or cup of soups or there are many other protein fulled soups that are not very fulling for long, take fibre tablets with the soup.
The idea is the more of this mix of protein soaked into a thickness of some kind the less hungry you will feel during the day and may also help in future to turn down hunger pains in the future.

Or if anyone can find a way to make a nice low fat protein thick soup I am entirely all ears.

Any way I have been losing weight and today 3rd February 2013 before starting this I am at 170.4 pounds ( 77.3kg)

Here goes :-) If anyone would like to try this please go for it, please feel free to tell me how you are going as well :-)
