Feeling a bit like a Central American with the amount of rice & beans I eat. If you ever wonder why people say they don’t feel satisfied on a largely plant-based diet it is almost surely because they simply aren’t eating enough calories. Whole plant foods, in comparison, are quite low in caloric density compared to proccessed foods, meats, cheeses, etc. This is great news for people who loooove their food! It means you can eat massive amounts and still have quite a hard time overeating! However, this often backfires when people try to keep the same portions or restrict calories when transitioning to a plant-based diet. You’ve probably heard people say, “My body just needs steak or cake or ice cream”, when in reality what you get from these foods is caloric density. If you don’t believe me, try this. DON’T PORTION OR CALORIE RESTRICT! When your consuming large amounts of whole plant foods it’s hard to overeat and by consciously restricting like is so common in diets you set yourself up for failure. The best research actually shows the best long term weight loss actually comes from shifting the bulk of of calories to whole plant foods. Plain and simple this is the real, “eat more, weigh less!” 💪🏼🌱🥭🍌 #food #health #weightloss
