The importance of satiety for fat loss

The importance of satiety for fat loss

Fat loss is a common fitness goal, and hunger levels can be one reason people struggle to achieve this goal. In this blog, we will discuss how focusing on satiety will result in better fat loss results. Feeling satiated means feeling full and keeping cravings/appetite to a minimum.

Making smart food choices

When you are dieting and following a calorie controlled diet, it is important to make smarter food choices to leave you feeling satiated. When you are picking foods to eat you want to try and eat as many whole foods as possible and choose lean protein options and they are going to be more satiating compared to more processed foods. Below you can see some examples of foods that are high volume while being lower calorie.

  • Potato's 
  • Chicken breast
  • White fish
  • Tofu
  • Greek yoghurt 
  • Berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
  • Vegetables
  • Eggs
  • Cottage cheese
  • Lean steak

The importance of protein

Protein is the most satiating macronutrient when comparing. When comparing protein to carbohydrates and fats, research and tests show that by following a high protein diet, you are likely to eat less calories per day on average. If you are looking to increase your daily protein intake, there are a range of high protein snacks available at Warrior. 

Reducing Cravings

Cravings are usually what cause binging and snacking therefore reducing these cravings are going to reduce the likelihood of you going over your calorie goals. One way to reduce cravings is by having high volume foods around the time of day when hunger levels are high. If you are somehow who craves chocolate regularly, adding protein bars into your diet could be a good option for you. Protein bars are packed with protein and more filling than the standard chocolate bar. Try the Warrior Crunch Bars in one of the many delicious flavours available to hit them sweet tooth cravings. 

Conclusion 

A calorie deficit is still the most important factor when it comes to losing body fat however tweaking your diet to making sure you are eating foods that are more filling is going to be a useful technique to keep you in that calorie deficit.
