I've tried that also.
I found ,for me anyway, it works best if I start brushing at 7pm and stop brushing around 10:

The diet soda thing makes sense...not a causal thing, but I'd imagine consumption of soda goes along with consumption of junk.

But any thougts about why the oatmeal? A half cup of rolled oats (uncooked) has only 150 calories. I eat it at least five days a week, either for breakfast or lunch. I usually add a few almonds and a few dried cherries or raisins. Def hasn't caused me to gain weight. Maybe it's an over compensation thing....people feel like if they deny themselves in the morning by eating oatmeal instead of bacon and eggs, they can gorge later?

On one end you've got your Steel Cut Oats and the other end Instant
Oats. The former is the least processed and has a very low glycemic index .The latter you may as well eat a bowl of sugar. Very high glycemic index and will convert to glucose almost instantly,Therefore you get a dump of insulin,and .....you get fat.
Restrict the carbs(30-40% of your daily intake max.),enjoy the eggs.The fire burns much hotter on fat than it does on carbs.
The almonds are great,lots of good fat,but the raisins &dried cherries are loaded with sugar

With diet soda there is a chemical reaction, as well as the psychological one.

With oatmeal it is a perception, and hunger feeling. I'm looking for the actual article that says it, I'll post it when I find it.

I believe that oatmeal is a good health food, if you can control yourself and the rest of your diet.

Thanks for calling this out! I have a bad tendency to say something and leave it hanging there!

This article gets to the same sort of conclusion with Snackwell Cookies.

There have been studies to show rapid short-term weight loss, studies by Samaha, Foster, Yancey, and Stern, and a comparable study in an adolescent population by Sondike. But these studies are all about restricting food choice, restricting calories and weight loss in the short term. We have no evidence that we're on a path towards sustainable dietary change. We do, in fact, have evidence to the contrary.
We focused exclusively on cutting fat more than a decade ago. Rather than emphasizing the consumption of health-promoting foods conducive to lifelong weight control, we had a rapid proliferation of low-fat, high-calorie, low-nutrient junk foods, epitomized by Snackwell cookies. The population essentially assumed that we could all eat Snackwell cookies until they came out our ears, and since they were low-fat, our weight would improve.
Well, of course, just the opposite occurred. Our calorie intake went up, and so did our weight.

*I like to paint. Painting uses all your muscles and then some:
scraping
ladder climbing
lifting (buy in 5 gallon buckets)
stretching, kneeling, crawling, reaching, brushing, rolling, dipping, WHEE.

*Move. You don't have to bike or any of that stuff. Just get up. I type and web surf standing up at a kitchen island while a fuzzy alternative radio station plays the new Motley Crue and I move with the music. I rarely sit down all day. I like the island....I can hang onto it and do all kinds of stuff...stretching the achilles, knee bends......

Gotta go.......Alice in Chains Man in the Box is on.......
