A weighty issue!

<r>Dear All, <br/> <br/> Just a side effect I'd like some feed back on if possible. During this quit and all my other attempts (there have been many) one thing I have noticed is that I lose the ability to feel "full" after eating. Normally you eat for a while and then go "arrgh I've had enough" howe...
