Why Atkins Feels So Good 

The biggest thing people say about the infamous Atkins Diet is that, unlike on low-fat-high-carb diets, they feel more full and satiated. A new study helps explain why we feel more full after a high-protein meal: it seems that eating proteins causes release of glucose in the small intestine, which makes us feel full.

I'm not entirely clear why this doesn't happen when we eat carbs, though...shouldn't eating glucose have the effect of adding glucose to the small intestine? Anyone got ideas here?
