Over the past few months I have come across the notion that not only does fat make you feel satiated but in fact the most satiated of all the macros.
Every time I see this I have to shake my head.
It does not make sense too me.
1 can of tuna at 6.5 oz is (about) 180 cal, 1g fat, 40g of protein
1.5 tabelspoon of olive oil is (about) 180 cal 20g of fat 0 protein.
Which will satiate you more? How about 2 cans of tuna vs 3 Tbs OO?
I think that fat being satiating has become a low-carb myth and is causing alot of people to think they can eat as much fat as they want because they will get full before they overeat.
Now I am not saying fat is bad or you should eat more protein than fat.
Just that if you are having trouble losing fat perhaps instead of cutting carbs another 20g (ooohhh 80 cal!) perhaps choosing leaner cuts of meat will be more benificial no matter what the macro ratio looks like.
I don't think the knee jerk response to every "I am having trouble" question should be "Eat More Fat!"
In my opinion most of the time "Eat More Protein!" would be most benificial.
Not "proof" but something to read through.
