This isn't a bad article, but the tips tend to suggest a diet that won't leave you satisfied. Oh, you might have enough food, but frankly, to me a salad with grilled chicken and just enough dressing to taste sounds like something I'd give up 20 years of my life to avoid eating every day. And too much of this advice leaves out the important role that fat plays in a satisfying diet. If I eat three strips of real bacon (turkey bacon is basically no better) and two over-easy eggs for breakfast, that's only 260 calories, but it's 260 calories that's going to keep me satisfied until lunchtime. I could eat 260 calories of whole grain oatmeal with a splash of skim milk, and it would not only be unsatisfying taste-wise, I would be hungry in two hours.
That being said, the article does mention nuts and eating protein, but I just wish that more articles would keep in mind the role of fat in our diet.
