When the body is hungry, it wants nutrients, not calorie. However, not all calories in the food are made the same. Calories coming from the right food choice can make a lot of difference especially in weight management as compared to the same amount of calorie coming from the wrong food choice.

Most people eat when they are not really physically hungry, rather because they are not satiated. Satiety simply based on quantity of food passing through our digestive tract. Higher quantity of food passing through our digestive tract will increase our satiety and suppress our appetite. Real natural foods are bulkier which also contains higher nutrient value will keep us feeling full longer as compared to junk food with lower bulk and low nutrient value of same calorie content. Therefore, eating junk food will keep us feeling hungry very fast despite the high calorie. That is one of the reason junk foods cause overweight and obesity. 

High fibre plant-based whole foods offer higher quantity as compared to other low fibre foods with same calorie content. Therefore, high fibre plant-based whole foods trigger stretch receptors that are located throughout the stomach faster with the same calorie to send signal telling the brain to stop eating as compared to other foods.

So next time if you feel hungry , think before you eat. Your food choice rather than the calorie content of the food matter more to your weight management and overall health.

对卡路里的意识比对计算卡路里还重要

人体饥饿的时候,它需要的是营养而不是卡路里。无论如何,不是全部的食物里的卡路里都是一样的。选择卡路里来自正确的食物比起同等的卡路里来自不正确食物对体重管理和整体带来相当大的影响

一般人不是因为真正肚子饿了而进食,却是因为食不果腹。果腹感基于通过肠胃道的食物量。越是多的食物量通过肠胃道,越会提升果腹感同时降低胃口。虽然拥有同样卡路里量的天然食物和垃圾食物比较的话,天然食物面积量比较大,营养价值也高比起面积量低而营养价值又低的垃圾食物可以让我们有较久的饱腹感。因此,垃圾食物虽然卡路里高,但是会让我们很快感觉饿。这就是垃圾食物导致体重过高和痴肥的其中一个原因。

植物性完整食物含有丰富的纤维质,提供的食物量高于相等卡路里的低纤维食物。因此,高纤维的植物性完整食物比其他相等卡路里的食物较快触发胃壁的拉张感应器, 然后传送讯息到脑部以便停止进食。

所以下次您肚子饿的时候,先想想才吃。您的食物选择比您的食物卡路里量对您的体重管理和健康更有影响。
