 Diet Personality Type Helps Cut Your Flab

If you are wondering how to lose weight after eating calorie-laden food, help is at hand.

A new research from WeightWatchers UK has revealed that there are seven diet personality types and discovering which one you are could be the key to weight-loss success, reports the Sun.

WeightWatchers takes into account the fact that all calories are not created equally and some foods help you to feel fuller than others and burn calories more effectively in our bodies.

Because protein and fibre-rich foods - such as lean meat, chicken, fish and wholegrains - help you to stay fuller for longer, these are assigned a lower ProPoints value compared with fat-rich and refined carbohydrate foods.

Even if a chicken breast (high protein) and a croissant (refined carbohydrate) have the same calories, the former has a lower point score because it will more effectively stave off hunger pangs and also help to burn extra calories in your body.

Vegetables have zero ProPoints values and you can eat as much as you like of them.

The same is true of fruit. The plan nudges you towards healthier lifestyle choices, making it easier to stick to in the short term when shedding pounds and when trying to keep them off.
