The legion of hungry hounds following their alpha bitch will always be craving their next fix, because the foods they are eating will never satisfy them.
Let's start with one of Hungry Girl's breakfasts, the PB&J Yogurt Parfait, composed of fat-free strawberry yogurt, chopped strawberries, low-fat peanut butter cereal and peanut butter baking chips. With about 2g of fat and 37g of carb, this crazy creation should really be called the crash and burn. When you take the fat out of peanut butter and yogurt, you also remove their satiety factor, virtually guaranteeing an emergency visit to the vending machine the minute you get to work.

hawking products on her website,
such as this "diet" ice cream
whose first three ingredients are
skim milk, corn syrup and sugar.
The point is, Hungry Girl still clings to an old paradigm of weight loss, which posits fat = bad and butter is the devil. This view was popular for many years but is quickly being replaced by growing scientific data and anecdotal evidence that sugar and most processed carbs could be more threatening than fat to our body weight and physical health. In fact, without enough fat, we may be doomed to always be Hungry Girls.
