Fat Loss Foods
In this post, I am going to give you a list of Fat loss foods. These are the foods that are very high in satiety index, i.e when you eat them you feel full. They curb your appetite and cravings (1).
These are the foods that you should include in your diet when you are on a fat loss regimen.
Now, before we start, I should tell you that Fat loss is independent of the type of foods that you eat. Fat loss depends on the simple mathematical equation of calorie balance.
That means you need to burn more calories than you consume.
However, as we get into implementation things start to change. When you start to eat less and exercise more you feel more hungry, more tired and your cravings start to shoot up.
So, I am going to give you a list of foods that are low in calories, rich in nutrients and are high in satiety index so don’t feel hungry all the time and can easily follow your diet.
