You missed something. It's called food-induced thermogenesis. It means you eat a lot of small, reasonably healthy snacks throughout the day, with few, if any main meals. Basically, your body is so busy burning calories from the foods that you ingest (every few hours) that you loose weight from eating. Did you know that cucumbers (yah, even pickles), celery, carrots, and the like actually make your body burn more calories by digesting them than it costs you to eat them? It's called a negative-calorie food. Yah. Totally. Eat often, eat healthy, and be thin.
