Feeling hungry is the most unwanted side effect of any dieting attempt.

So finding ways to reduce hunger is the “holy grail” of weight loss.

Low-carb diet books and blogs, promising that you can “diet without hunger”, seem like a very attractive proposal for anyone wanting to lose excess body weight.

And if we find that they do, we’ll want to know exactly how they do it!
