Dieters, it's Time to Eat Real Food!
Sunday, January 24, 2016
"Most diets are destined to fail because they are too strict and don't have enough fat in them, says Harvard University nutritionist Dr. David Ludwig. Traditional low-fat diets, in which fats are replaced by carbohydrates and sugars, fuel a vicious circle of hunger by throwing the body into starvation mode, he says."
"He cited one 2012 study which showed the same people burned 325 fewer calories a day while on a low fat diet than on moderate and high fat Mediterranean style diets containing the same amount of energy.
This was because the body had evolved to become super-efficient when food was scarce and humans had to forage for survival.
The secret was instead to eat luscious and hearty meals which fed the body properly and kept hunger at bay for longer, he said.
Examples of meals he and his chef wife, Dawn, have come up with include Melt-in-your-mouth lamb shanks, Shepherd's pie with Cauliflower topping and Steak salad with Blue cheese dressing.
Desserts can be slathered in homemade chocolate sauce, using dark chocolate or cream, as long as no sugar is added."
