Carbohydrates made me hungry every two hours.

 I couldn't understand why I was hungry all the time. It seemed no matter how much I ate I was at the refrigerator on schedule, every two hours. I started dieting. I thought I was being healthy by filling soft, wheat tortillas with shredded vegetables like lettuce, cabbage, carrots, broccoli, etc., and just using a little salad dressing, yet again I found myself hungry every two hours. I figured now that I was limiting myself to vegetables I should be okay.
I stopped drinking everything but water in June of 2012. I stopped putting creamer and sweetener in my coffee and I actually enjoy it more because after drinking coffee with creamer and sweetener, my stomach hurt and I had to eat something. Nearly everything is sweetened with High Fructose Corn Syrup. After I quit the creamers and sweeteners I was no longer hungry for something to eat right away.
I learned that all Carbohydrates are converted into sugar by the Liver. Here's a nutrition label for pure granulated sugar: href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/sweets/5592/2
Note that one teaspoon of pure granulated sugar has 4 grams of Carbohydrates. We can reverse-engineer how many teaspoons of sugar we eat by looking at the nutrition label for a Wheat Tortilla, about 10 inches in diameter: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/baked-products/5120/2
The label shows 36 grams of Total Carbohydrates, but by showing Sugars at 1 gram it seems safe, right? Would you eat 9 teaspoons of sugar right now? 

Thom Hartmann also reported on the addiction potential of High Fructose Corn Syrup.
