The secret is this little thing called energy density. If you are intrigued and want to read all about it, I attached a .pdf to the blog post with more information. Here is the general idea. Different foods have different energy densities, defined as calories per gram. The lower the energy density, the more food you can eat while still keeping your calories down. Research shows that people tend to eat the same amount of food on a day to day basis. In a diet, you try to restrict that amount and then are not satisfied. Try instead to substitute lower energy density foods (which also tend to be higher in many micronutrients, double bonus). Bottom line, to loose fat you need to maintain an energy deficient: calories in must be less than calories out. This is one tool to help you successfully maintain that.
