In the Southern Hemisphere, March 21 is the first day of autumn, so the beginning of winter is on the way. Whatever the season, this is typically the time of year when a New Year’s resolution to lose weight loses ground (or grinds to a halt).
Unfortunately, shedding pounds and keeping them off isn’t easy for most people. There are so many diet plans to choose from and often difficult to maintain. Yet the truth about putting on weight or losing weight is about balance: calories in versus calories burned.
The type and quantity of food and drink consumed daily determine the calories in. Body metabolism and physical activity determine the calories burned. What if one simple dietary change could be made to lower caloric intake yet not make a person feel hungry all the time?
