Many people who resolved to loss weight feel staving all the time, because they try to eat less and burn more calories. and still they do not loss weight! Why?! Because the quality of what you eat is matters! When you eat crackers, cookies, your body will identify those as “treasure” and hoard them instead of burn them for future “emergency use”(Say you had lunch at noon, and no food until 7pm, probably at 4pm your body notice “energy emergency” and automatically burn these previously hoard calorie ) therefore, you feel hungry and want o eat more. nuts such as walnut, peanut, almond are the best snacks, your body will not hoard them. in a nut shell, pay attention to what you eat in lieu of how much calories you eat!
