Completing cutting out fat and going low-fat or no-fat tend to leave a lot of people hungry in both the short- and long-term. Normally, dietary fat doesn’t really blunt hunger in the short-term, but keeping some in your diet keeps you fuller longer between meals because fat slows gastric emptying like fiber.
In addition, low-fat diets often get compared to eating cardboard. Psychologicalyl speaking, people don’t follow a diet that doesn’t taste good for long. Fats gives food a certain texture and very low-fat diets remove it, leaving people dissatisfied, and binging after their willpower crumbles.
Research shows that moderate fat diets helps you stick to your diet longer and more efficiently, without wanting to go crazy.
Keep it healthy though, it’s no excuse for fries. Add some salmon or almonds in for a healthy dose of omega-3!
