Fuel your weight-loss journey with Diet FuelFebruary 2022 February 2022 Share Link Close share Copy link If you search for ‘weight-loss tips’ on the internet, you will find thousands of articles on the topic. On paper, weight loss seems simple: if the calories that you burn are more than the calories that you consume daily, you will lose weight. But how do you successfully implement this simple strategy into a fast-paced life? LIGHT MEAL REPLACEMENTS AND WEIGHT LOSS Irrespective of what your goals might be, it is essential to evaluate the ingredients of the products that you consume and how it fits into your weight-loss journey. Products that are lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein and fibre can help you to reach your weight-loss goals. LOWER CARBOHYDRATES AND WEIGHT LOSS A lower carbohydrate diet limits the amount of carbohydrates that you consume. This allows your body to use fat as a source of energy and reduces the amount of excessive carbohydrates that your body does not utilise and then stores as fat. In basic terms: carbohydrates provide your body with energy and if you do not use the energy, it will be stored as fat. PROTEIN AND WEIGHT LOSS Protein plays an essential part in ensuring that your body functions optimally, as it helps with the growth and maintenance of muscles, tissues and cells. Protein consists of 20 different amino acids. Often referred to as the building blocks of life, amino acids are the molecules that combine to create proteins. The advantages of consuming protein are endless, but can it assist with weight loss? While following a calorie-restricted diet and exercising are the foundation of weight loss, protein can help with your weight-loss journey by increasing satiety. Protein is considered the most thermogenic of all macronutrients—the energy your body uses to digest food—and will therefore help to increase your body’s metabolic rate. FIBRE AND WEIGHT LOSS Lower carbohydrate diets are sometimes associated with lower fibre intake, which can have a negative impact on your digestive health. It is therefore vital to add fibre to your diet. Fibre plays a crucial role in losing weight, controlling cravings, regulating blood sugar levels, and maintaining stable energy levels on a lower carbohydrate diet. Fibre also increases satiety.
