      I think it has a lot to do with the high glycemic load of today's finely ground flours, potatos and sugars.  It's not that those ingredients are bad in and of themselves--it's because too much refined starch eaten all by itself will shoot your blood sugar through the roof then drop you like a rock a couple of hours later.  Then you're hungry again.
