The only time I snack on a fat day is when (if) my blood sugar crashes. I have a history of low blood sugar so if my vision goes blurry I have to eat or I will end up falling over.
I have 1-2 tbsp of hoummous with some vegetable sticks e.g. Capsicum, carrot, celery etc. I weigh it all out and I will keep my snack between 100-150 cals.
For those who feel full on carbs I read an article (and I am wracking my brains to remember where) that was about those who have greater weight loss on a higher carb lower fat type of diet and those who have a higher fat (good fats) lower carb diet.
For the first two weeks of this month I experimented with the higher carb-lower fat type diet and I found that for two weeks weight loss at first was weight gain
and then slowly over two weeks I went back to my previous weight and I just stayed there. Then I went back on my higher fat-lower carb diet and I lost 0.75kg in about 10 days.
Another thing I found was that eating higher fat means that I don't need snacks between meals but when I eat carbs I am hungry sooner and it takes far more will power to not snack between meals.
Throughout my experiment my protein levels were pretty much constant it was only the fat and carbs that I was changing.
This might be a metabolic thing going on which may suggest why some do better on a lower fat diet and others do better on a lower carb diet.
Methinks that this may be another avenue that warrents further research. Also what some natural therapists suggest is that everyone is different and what works for one person will not necessarily work for another (horses for courses). I think that is one of the things that I really like about this way of eating that if I feel better and lose weight more efficiently on a higher fat diet it's good for me and that if you do better on higher carbs then that's good for you. No worries, as we would say in Australia.
