I notice that whenever I eat a high-fat breakfast and lunch, it's much easier to stick to my calorie goals. If you look in my Nutrition Tracker for Wednesday the 22nd, I added a hot dog to my eggs and had lunch with some olive oil. I actually ate about 200 calories less than my range that day because I was too full when I got home. But I was 200 calories over range yesterday -- my fat levels were lower, and I was starving at the end of the day. (But, luckily, as soon as I ate a Quest bar, I was satisfied.)
I also took a quiz that I saw in a Jillian Michaels book which told me that I am a fast oxidizer. As a fast oxidizer, I was advised to moderate my carb intake and focus on fats and protein. I don't believe in diets (I eat whatever I want -- whenever), but this has been helping me stay in calorie range.
Does anyone else notice that eating a lot of fat helps keep the overall calorie intake down?
