The Key to Fat Loss Is Diet Quality

The Key to Fat Loss Is Diet Quality

There are so many diets out there to choose from, it’s hard to know what might work best for your specific diet needs. But, the majority of diets out there all seem to focus on calories first. The simple rule is, if you eat less calories than your body needs during the day, your body will make up that deficit by burning fat – which causes you to loose weight. Recent studies are showing that although quantity is important, diet quality, meaning what you are choosing to eat, is just as important – if not more so.

Recent studies have found that if you cut back on added sugar, refined grains and highly processed foods, and replace them with plenty of vegetables and whole foods, lost significant amounts of weight over the course of a year. Even if they didn’t count or limit calories and portion sizes.

Whether those in the study followed low fat diets or low carb diets, success wasn’t impacted by genetic or their insulin response. The good news with this is – it makes dieting for weight loss far easier. Rather than obsessing over calories, if you instead avoid processed foods with added sugar and refined starches, you’ll find your diet is much more successful.

What’s important to realize is that a “high quality diet” produced substantial weight loss and that the percentage of calories from fat or carbs did not matter. And that eating healthy fats and carbs can help prevent heart disease, diabetes and other diseases. So, if you’re looking to loose weight, focusing on diet quality rather than calories eaten may result in greater diet success, it can also help change your relationship with food, and provide you with greater overall health as well.
