One of the EASIEST ways to lose weight is to stop drinking any of your calories. Many studies show that solid food calories register with your appetite, so you naturally eat less at your next meal, without even trying. Liquid calories don’t.
On average, studies show that consuming 100 extra calories…
- in solid form, leads folks to eat 65 fewer calories at their next meal
- in semi-solid form, leads to 21 fewer calories
- in liquid form, leads to eating NO fewer calories.
The reason is ghrelin, the hormone that makes you want to eat. Ghrelin levels go down–and stay down–longer after solid food.
Have a good week!
