Also could have been titled “Question #4 for Kyle” :rofl:

Always blows my mind when Kyle is on. 1 cup of rice 200 Cal, so how many cups do you need on a 6,000 calorie day?

I don’t understand the assertion that fat isn’t filling. I can eat rice all day long, but a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter or a whole avocado feels like a ton in the gut. He said it a couple times, and I’m baffled by this. Do people not find fat heavy foods filling?

Maybe he meant as compared to protein? Or like on a calorie per gram basis? That would make broccoli the most filling food on earth probably, but you would have to eat a ton of it.

Yeah, I picked up on that too and for me personally that assertion is totally incorrect. In fact, fat combined with protein and or carbs can make a meal way more satiating.

My thinking is that he thinks fat won’t hold you over that much either on it’s own, or as comparatively on a gram:gram basis as other foods. That’s how I made sense of it.
