Easiest Way to lose weight
The whole concept of calorie density comes down to satisfying hunger with fewer calories and for a longer period of time. How is it possible? We can effectively decrease the number of calories consumed if we follow these simple rules:
- choose water-rich foods over the dry produce: fresh fruits, veggies, and berries can consist of water up to 96%. Since water has no calories but occupies space in the stomach, you are more likely to feel fuller while consuming fewer calories.
- choose whole foods over refined products: whole foods, like whole grains, legumes, fresh veggies and fruits, nuts, and seeds are full of fiber that carries no calories but contributes greatly to the time spend in your digestive tract, therefore keeping you satiated longer.
- decrease the consumption of oils: oil is a highly processed product that is 100% fat, and a gram of fat carries double the calories of the same amount of protein or carbs. That makes oil a very calorie-dense food: 2 tbsp of olive oil would contribute to over 10% of the daily calorie requirement on average.
