Sunbathing on our new terrace, I discovered that there's more of me than there should be. So I painted red dots on my fingernails hoping something would change. The only reaction I got was from Pierluigi who asked me if I had the measles.
Is it me that wants food or is it food that wants me?

Susanna Holt, PhD, has developed the Satiety Index, a system to measure different foods' ability to satisfy hunger. A fixed amount (240 calories) of different foods was fed to participants who then ranked their feelings of hunger every fifteen minutes and were allowed to eat freely for the next two hours. Of all the foods tested, potatoes were the most satisfying.
