What is the Fat Brake?

Your body not only has a Famine Reaction that protects you from losing weight, it also has an ingenious mechanism - the Fat Brake - that helps protect you from gaining weight. Whenever you eat more than you need, your Fat Brake blunts your appetite (notably your appetite for fattening foods) and boosts your metabolic rate. The result is that if you simply eat in accordance with your reduced physical hunger (e.g. if you don't feel hungry, do something else besides eat), you actually burn off any excesses extremely efficiently.
