First, I wrote a book, "Nightshade Free Pain Free!" in which weight loss and nightshades are related. (end of shameless plug)
Nightshade plants, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant, contain several neurotoxins. It seems that these neurotoxins are in high enough quantities to be harmful to proper digestion. One the neurotoxins is atropine, it deadens the smooth muscles, such as the lining of the stomach.
I belive that atropine prevents the proper signals from being to sent to the brain to tell the person they are full. I have only tested this on two people, both of them reduced their intake of food by about half after removing nightshades from their diet.
Solanine in nightshades seems to upset the intestine and leads to diarrhea. This intern leads to poor absorption of food, and the person's body is stimulated to hunger, so they have cravings for quick energy such as sugars.
This is by no means a miracle diet, but it certainly helps, once I gave up nightshades, I lost all of my cravings for sweets.
