Yay , Please add only “ONLY” 5 Oreos in my diet” Yes, you heard that right . You can eat oreo’s and still lose weight . But have I told you how much 50 gms of cookies may take space in your diet compared to 50 gms of rice ? What if I told you , you can eat cookies and still lose weight but it won’t be satiating , you’ll feel hungry and you may end up eating the whole packet. But Hey , Supposed you are following a Deficit meal plan where you include these calorie dense food which takes almost half of your calories in your diet . So now you are left with much lesser calories where you need to accommodate protein as well as fats too . The result might be you will feel more hungry and the diet will make you keep starving . Also chances are you may end up eating the whole packet as these foods makes you crave to eat more , You may end up cheating on your diet quite often . The point here I want to explain is when you follow a diet always choose foods which are more satiating and keeps you fuller for longer time. Avoiding foods which are too calorie dense would be a smart move to make you a little less hungry on your transformation journey . On the contrary if you are on a gaining phase where you need to eat a large sum of calories you can surely include these foods to complete your calorie intake . Few Take away points while following a diet : -Add foods which are more satiating such as rice , oats , eggs , chicken etc. -Include more green veggies that may help you to curb your hunger . -Keep yourself hydrated . -Don’t keep tempting foods in your house which you might fail to control and overeat. -Always And always track your calories .
