I've wondered about texture, I certainly know cottage cheese and oatmeal by texture. I know regular cheese, cream, coconut oil, hamburger, even chicken by mouthfeel. I did some experimenting back when the noseclip thread was popular last year. I got a really strong satiety effect, with calorie loaded smoothies, but hunger seemed to come back sooner with carbs in my smoothie. I tried protein powder plain, but the taste was identifiable through noseclips, and not very appealing. I found out things like 80 nonfat milk calories made me fuller than 200 yogurt calories. It's hard to eat regular food with noseclips and I got sick of smoothies, lol. After my failed experiment with oil in my noseclipped smoothie, I kept my SLD oils completely separate. That way, at least I had some AS. Interesting thought about taste difference. SW and fructose do not have the same sweet taste, although I should try them NC'd to see if that holds. I get differences in what I call tongue tang, which is related to antioxidant value of foods. I get a protein bite with chicken, cottage cheese, yogurt, protein powder.
I couldn't say if one food worked better noseclipped than another, it just seemed they did not work as well as ELOO. Once you have AS, it's hard to assess change, because of the buildup effect. I noticed differences in satiety, and sometimes in hunger control, but I didn't notice one thing working better, it was more I noticed when AS was gone. With bouncing weight patterns, it's even harder. It is normal for me to vary 2-3 lbs in a week (wakeup weight) even when my weight is stable. When it starts a two week spiking cycle, it looks out of control. This time, I have been bouncing within a narrow range since my first week's big loss, not directly tied to carbs or calories or even appetite. It's not a 3 lb pop overnight or a steady upward climb, and the AS is holding. I'm assuming my setpoint is slowly working its way down after my 6 lb drop, and it will take a few weeks of bouncing. Some people here lose in stairstep fashion, lose 1-2 lbs, perfectly flat for a couple weeks, lose 1-2 more. If only. :?
