Calorie Restriction VS Higher-Fat Foods
Calorie restriction doesn’t seem to be an effective solution to weight gain or obesity. Instead of restricting calories and depriving yourself of delicious food, fuel your body with nutrient-dense, rich, high-fat foods. According to the Carbohydrate-Insulin Model, a diet higher in fats and lower in carbohydrates (particularly refined carbohydrates) is more likely to be associated with health benefits. A lower-calorie, high-glycemic load diet – on the other hand – doesn’t appear to “lessen predisposition to fat storage nor diminish hunger”.
