I want to share this quote here, especially with the influx of new people who have just recently joined the various online groups we manage:

Guys & Gals: have we become so “cognitive dissonant” and complacent, that we have forgotten that hunger is, in a way, a natural part of the process of any diet that the main focus is fat loss???

Any diet, be it keto or high…
