I provided 6 different medical studies that support my statment.

Honestly Hodar, I did not read your "medical" studies. After reading the "medical studies" regarding the 400,000 yearly deaths due to smoking and ETS I wouldn't waste my time reading their pre-determined outcome "studies" on anything.

If I am wrong, then why do every drug, and every medical proceedure target the appetite mechanism?

See the bolded portion for the answer to your question. $$$$$

Can you provide any sources?

My source is me and a few other friends. I'm usually too busy to eat or simply forget to eat until late afternoon or evening when I'm about to pass out from low blood sugar.

Oddly enough, the only time I was ALWAYS hungry was when I went on a diet that required 6 meals a day. Had to start eating early to work them all in. It's a metabolism thing.

So, if you dislike the medical facts; then the facts are done not by academics, but for fiscal results. How very convenient. Wrong, but you have dismissed them not based on any merits; but based upon personal bias.

I’m just a silly engineer; I deal in facts, theories and observable laws on a daily basis. I also know that when I was obese, I could not suppress my appetite. Those medicals studies I mentioned do not propose to sell anything, they are linking enzymes related to appetite suppression and the fact that obesity interferes with the release of those enzymes and hormones.

For example, if you skip breakfast, like a lot of people do; around lunch time you may be a little bit hungry, a small sandwich may be all you crave, or an apple.

But, have a donut, or a candybar at 8am; and by 10am you will want your sandwich, and at noon you will want more yet. Or, have a donut at 8, and by 9 you will want another - by noon you will be ravenous. This is a typical carbohydrate metabolic response; the obese person has this response as a constant companion. This causes them to overeat - not because they need the food - it’s because their appetites are demanding the food.

Check out the sites; they are not sponsored by Rx peddling companies (I filter them out as being biased). If I provided sources that were hawking a product, I would be undermining my arguement.
