Nuts are the low fat hi fiber exception, nuts are hi in fiber and healthy fat.
Hi fiber foods do not stimulate the addictive brain pleasure center, there are studies that fat and sugar is highly addictive mentally, in the brain, and cause mice to eat until they die from obesity. Once your tastebuds become addicted to fat, sugar, low fat fiber plant foods becomes avoided at all cost because lowfat fiber foods do not stimulate the brain pleasure center and causes mental pain or withdrawal symptoms in my opinion.

Fiber is very important in the diet, it is what people avoid because its found only in low fat foods, it makes you feel full and poops are bulky,people avoid high fiber foods because it is in foods that have a bland taste like sawdust, fat tastebuds do not like fiber a fatal mental flaw, fiber intake is highly correlated to a healthy low fat diet, it eliminates fat from the blood, triglycerides,cholesterol, and prevents excessive fat absorption and helps with insulin resistance. Natural Fiber intake is also a good dietary indicator, if you analyze a healthy diet it will show a higher natural fiber content from foods fruits vegetables whole grains beans the bulk of what our diet should be 80-90 percent. High protein low carb hi fat diets are not healthy or natural, because they are low in natural dietary fiber, are bad for the organs, cardiovascular system, and are associated with obesity, heart disease,diabetes,weight gain in my opinion.

Counting Carbs or Calories? What works for you?
i count calories 1000 per day, watch carbs, do not use fat, count grams of protein 55 per day, i'm mostly lean protein about 55 grams per day, always grilled with no fat/oil and not in excess have read that excess protein can be converted to fat, no dairy products, low calorie vegetables and fruits and small amounts of complex carbs only no sugars, like one slice of bread per day or 1/2 cup of rice per day, or one corn tortilla per day, and thats it do not use vegetable oil, no nuts, no fish oil supplements.
