> cut all fats

That is an unfortunate myth. "Current evidence does not clearly support
cardiovascular guidelines that encourage high consumption of polyunsaturated
fatty acids and low consumption of total saturated fats."[1]

The fats to eliminate are trans fats and interesterified fats, and to minimize,
most liquid fats (vegetable oils except for olive and coconut) and
polyunsaturated fats.

The problems are media, textbooks, doctors and medical schools haven't yet
caught up to all available facts, and food industry inertia, which tends to
maximize profit by producing what people think they want and need rather than
what they should want and do need.

Increasing saturated fat intake generally *reduces* arterial plaque buildup,
increases HDL, decreases bad LDL, and increases good LDL[2].

Sugars and simple carbs that quickly convert to sugar during digestion (e.g.
boxed cereals and commercially produced breads, which BTW are almost all GMO)
increase hunger and increase insulin (one of the hunger hormones) production,
which stimulates fat accumulation by converting the excess sugar to fat.

Low- or reduced-fat foods generally "feature" proportionately higher bad carbs,
retard satiety and induce over-eating.

Fats reduce hunger.
