Eat This Bread to Curb Afternoon Appetite
Make midafternoon cravings a thing of the past by bulking up your breakfast with a slice of rye toast.
Research suggests that eating rye bread may do an even better job than wheat bread at keeping stomachs from growling later in the day.
The Toast That Tides You Over
In a study, people who ate rye bread with breakfast were less hungry before and after lunch compared with people who ate wheat. Rye’s super-high fiber content probably has something to do with it. But researchers suspect that rye may also produce a lower insulin response than wheat bread (this would help with hunger), and that rye may have a unique fiber composition that keeps people feeling full longer. Here are four additional simple breakfast rules that can help you shed pounds.
Of all the rye breads tested, rye-bran bread had the best effect on hunger. Makes sense, since it also has the highest fiber content of the breads. Need to get more fiber in your diet? Try these tricks:
Eat more of these tropical tubers that are jammed with fiber.

Dolly Parton Happy Birthday!
Parton is a hugely successful songwriter, having begun by writing country-music songs with strong elements of folk music, based upon her upbringing in humble mountain surroundings, and reflecting her family's evangelical-Christian background. Her songs "Coat of Many Colors", "I Will Always Love You" and "Jolene" have become classics in the field, as have a number of others. As a songwriter, she is also regarded as one of country music's most-gifted storytellers, with many of her narrative songs based on persons and events from her childhood. Parton has listed almost 600 songs with Broadcast Music, Inc. and has earned 37 BMI awards for her material. In 2001, she was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
In a 2009 interview with CNN's Larry King Live, Parton indicated that she had written "at least 3,000" songs, having written seriously since the age of seven. Parton went on to say that she writes something every day, be it a song or an idea. Wikipedia
