🔥 New: 7 Ayurvedic Secrets to Lose Weight & Energize
Increased Hunger May Be the Reason Why Diets Fail
Research conducted by Dr. Eric Stice and others has shown that portion-controlled calorie-restricted diets not only increase appetite but also greatly increase the desire to eat more calorie-dense foods that are high in fat and/or sugar.
Pitting a powerful biological drive such as hunger against one's intellectual will is in fact likely counterproductive for long-term weight control and may very well be a formula for frustration and disordered thinking about food along with sometimes distorted views of the body itself.
As Dr. Stice and colleagues have shown, the increased hunger seen with traditional calorie-restricted diet and exercise programs greatly heightened his subject’s desire to consume highly-palatable calorie-dense foods. This made calorie-dense low-satiety-per-calorie (or fattening) foods far more difficult to avoid over the long term
A more rational approach to reducing calorie intake without increasing hunger is to simply focus change on WHAT you eat. By changing WHAT is consumed to a diet composed largely of minimally-processed plant foods, people will consume far fewer calories without any need to use their intellectual willpower to eat less than hunger demands.
