Just hype or a healthy way to lose weight?

How was that? Fat makes you fat? The 80s are back, because at that time, Low Fat was THE diet to lose weight Although low carb trend of recent years, but Low Fat holds adamantly. You can find out everything you should know about a low-fat diet here

What is the Low-Fat Diet anyway?

The low-fat diet is - oh wonder - about saving fat as much as possible After all, fat is the macronutrient with the most calories. As a reminder: protein and carbohydrates provide you with 4 calories per gram, fat more than double that with 9 calories per gram. And if you save this energy, then your calorie balance should go into the red more easily. But you shouldn't cut the fat entirely, which is also quite difficult, as many protein-rich foods also contain fat at the same time. In addition, your body relies on a certain amount of fat and if you completely do without it, then it does you much more harm than that Low fat diet brings something. Plus, fat isn't bad per se

How do you follow the low-fat diet?

The low-fat diet is less of one of the numerous crash diets, but more of a way of eating. Besides, she really doesn't have any specific rules other than saving fat.

While you are following the low-fat diet, your fat intake should only account for 10% to a maximum of 30% of your daily energy intake. Depending on your personal macro distribution, that can be as little as 30 grams of fat per day. So "simply" avoid high-fat foods and pay attention to the low daily amount of fat. In return, you can eat more carbohydrates and proteins. But please watch out for complex carbs and not much more protein than you normally eat. And while we're at it: When choosing the few fats that you are allowed to eat, pay attention to healthy fats.

To go with it: carbohydrates for weight loss.

For information: The German Nutrition Society recommends getting around 25-30% of the total daily calories from fats for a balanced and healthy diet - 7-10% each from polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and also saturated. Trans fats should only make up a maximum of 1% of the daily food energy. All in all, that would add up to 60-80 grams of fat. So, you save quite a bit of fat through a low-fat diet.

What are the benefits of the Low-Fat Diet?

As I said, the low-fat diet should help you save calories more easily. Because the less energy-rich macros you eat, the better your calorie balance is. In order to know how much you are "allowed" to eat, you should first calculate your calorie requirement and know how high or low your basal metabolic rate and your performance metabolic rate are.

Some of you may find it easier to lose weight on a low-fat diet because you can eat carbs and avoid cravings. Eliminating fat is often easier for the body than avoiding carbs. In addition, your body uses the high-carb-low-fat diet for the energy it needs. If you then eat enough protein, your body uses everything directly to maintain and build muscle mass. More muscle mass, in turn, requires more energy - you lose weight even better.

Which foods are allowed in the low-fat diet and which are not?

For the most part, your low-fat diet should include low-fat foods like these:

Fresh fruits and vegetables

Low fat fish

Low-fat meat

Low fat dairy products

Complex carbohydrates such as whole grain pasta, potatoes, rice, whole grain bread, quinoa
