Nutrition Better ExplainedAKA "How to Easily Be Slim"
The #1 thing to be aware of, regarding nutrition: taken the wrong way, sugar is much more fattening than fat.
For example, when your blood sugar is too high, your body starts turning all that sugar to fat; cells in general burn sugar instead of fat; and fat cells take that newly synthesized fat, as well as other fats from your meal present in the blood, and put that into storage ASAP.
But that is only the first part of the problem presented by high blood sugar: the machinery that controls this (insulin + etc.) is fairly slow to adapt, so at the tail end of your meal, once all that sugar is digested and gone, you still have insulin present, and your body continues to consume/convert sugar and store fat for some time. As a result, your blood sugars will soon fall below the comfort zone, and you will be hungry! So what do people do? They have another snack or meal made up of fast sugar, have another spike and crash, and then have yet another feeling of intense hunger - not because they need the calories in general, but because they are eating the wrong calories.
In other words: eat fast sugars (such as fruit juice or junk food) and you will not only have put on fat - you will also be hungry minutes after your meal, even though you will have eaten a considerable amount of calories.
The movie covers this and quite a bit more, including the psychological tricks you can use to make changes to your tastes such that you will soon be hungry for a different type of food, which is the key to making it easy: don't be constantly depriving yourself (as inevitably you must, if your diet is a sweet one) - instead, change your tastes so that you desire the foods that will feed you well, and then, evidently, being slim will happen all by itself.
Confused by any of the previous text? I kind of agree, and that's why it's presented in video format, as it really makes a lot more sense with the visual aids and audio / real-time treatment.

Youtube has a 10 minute limit to its videos, so I had to break the video into little bits. Here is the video playlist.
Notes and Corrections
- Critical Correction: Based on this documentary and on better knowledge of the conspiracies at large (the curse of 'interesting times'), I must correct one small part: in the video, I explain how easy it is to switch from regular Coke(TM) to diet (and water). I will be updating the video when I get a chance, but for now, please be careful with all the synthetic chemicals they offer in drinks. Regardless, the advice from that segment works just as well when switching directly to water: one or two weeks go by and all of a sudden it becomes your preference, so please don't hesitate - one or two weeks of tiny discomfort for a lifetime of 'more easily slim' (so long as you compensate for the lost sugar by eating snacks and meals made of slow sugars during the day)
- Regarding the Atkins Diet (TM), my statements are somewhat unfair to it since the diet is not only about eating meat and fat, but that's what a lot of people seem to focus on when doing the Atkins diet. Regardless, I feel that phase 1 of the South Beach Diet presents a healthier way to reach ketone production, if that is your goal. (Watch the movie for my own set of suggestions, none of which depend on the brutal ketone approach).
