Diets do not work because they are basically just making the food behave. When we have taken out the sugar and replaced it with an artificial sugar, thrown out the fat and replaced it with an artificial fat, thrown out the calories and replaced them with non-caloric fluff or indigestible hay, we have made the food behave or change. We have not changed our own behavior. We do not have to change how much food we chew and swallow, because the food itself has changed to larger volumes of low-calorie content. One serving piece of food that used to contain 115 calories now contains only 70 calories. Since the same volume of food now contains fewer calories, you can eat a larger volume. Never mind that it is tasteless and unpalatable. You do not have to take fewer bites of food to lose weight; you can even take more bites on a diet. However, you eventually go back to the regular foods. This is inevitable because you get sick and tired of diet food, and your body craves regular food. As a result, you gain weight back quickly because you were reprogrammed to chew even more food while on the diet!
