If you’re serious about losing belly fat I bet you’ve already started cutting your calories or you’re about to start. And even though you can restrict your calories and track every last gram of food that goes into your mouth to eventually burn the fat from all over your body including your midsection, the truth is that tracking and restricting calories can be incredibly difficult to sustain over time. of course, this doesn’t change the very well known fact that to lose weight and belly fat, you have to be in a calorie deficit. (1) This is the whole reason why so many trainers have their clients count calories, to begin with. and counting calories can definitely help you reduce the size of your waist because it’ll help you ensure that you are in fact in a calorie deficit at all times.
However, many people may not want to count calories for the rest of their lives and there’s a huge portion of people that simply don’t have the time or desire to do it at all. on top of that even if someone’s great at counting calories in the beginning, within a matter of weeks or months chances are very high that they’re no longer tracking their calories and macros anymore. and even if you do track everything, calorie counting doesn’t inherently make dieting easier. You’ll still struggle with hunger cravings that’ll make it very difficult to stay on track as time goes on.
However, the good news is that you don’t “have” to count calories to lose weight. even though it can be very beneficial for some people there is another way, an easier way. and that’s something known as an optimized ad libitum diet. and for many of you, I’m sure you’re wondering What is an ad libitum diet? Well, Ad libitum is Latin for “as you desire” or “at one’s pleasure.” In other words, ad libitum dieting means you can eat as much food as you want. I know it might sound crazy but stick with me. So, you don’t track your macros, but instead, you eat based on hunger.
Now, given the fact that you must be in a calorie deficit to lose weight, it may seem impossible to reduce your belly fat and get slim without focusing on your caloric intake. But that’s not true.
By following a set of guidelines, most people can lose belly fat without tracking calories, and without experiencing constant hunger. and you do that by eating foods that are highly satiating. In other words, you want to follow a high-satiety meal plan. and Here’s why; We can view appetite as something that’s more or less genetically fixed. You may have a big appetite. You may have a small appetite. Or, like most people, you probably fall somewhere in the middle of that spectrum. Now, imagine your appetite as a tank and pretend that to fill your tank you need to fill it with 100 units of food per day. Each food you eat fills a certain amount of that appetite tank, and some foods fill the tank more than others. Now, Once you’ve reached those 100 units, you’ll feel full and satisfied. But if you don’t reach that amount, you’re going to feel hungry and you’ll want to eat more. The beauty of all of this is that different foods have different satiety values. In other words, some foods satiate hunger better per calories supplied than others. If you only eat foods that score high on the satiety index, which is a ranking of the most satiating foods, if you were to only do that you would reach that 100-unit mark of fullness earlier than if you were to consume low satiety foods. That’s why a high-satiety diet causes you to consume fewer calories while a low-satiety diet promotes overeating.
For example, here’s a reference from a study that shows the satiety value of 38 foods. One thing the study found is that potatoes are seven times more satiating than croissants. (3) So even though both potatoes and croissants are relatively fast-digesting carbohydrates you’re going to feel a lot fuller eating potatoes over croissants. so, when you place people on an ad libitum diet, their aim is to eat based on food volume. Let’s say for example they’re choosing between having 4 ounces of pasta, rice, or potatoes. (4) Since potatoes have anywhere from one-third to half the amount of calories that are found in most grain products, they can provide an easy way to reduce your calories without impacting hunger.
We can find the exact opposite with sugar which has almost no effect on satiety at all.
