ROCK SOLID

Muscle & Performance - - Pro Corner -

When it comes to the calo­ries you con­sume each and ev­ery day, form mat­ters. A study in the jour­nal Obe­sity ex­posed peo­ple to the same num­ber of calo­ries in liq­uid or solid form only to find that post-meal hunger and de­sire to eat were greater when sub­jects con­sumed liq­uid calo­ries. It ap­pears that a solid meal leads to a greater drop in lev­els of the hunger-in­duc­ing hor­mone ghre­lin, which could help tame your ap­petite. Sim­i­larly, the fi­brous struc­ture in whole fruit helps slow the ab­sorp­tion of its nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring sug­ars, which can con­trib­ute to sati­ety. The take­away is that the body doesn’t reg­is­ter 300 liq­uid calo­ries in the same way it does if those 300 calo­ries came in the form of whole food which could lead to in­creased hunger and higher over­all daily calo­rie in­take. Hence, one rea­son for the strong as­so­ci­a­tion be­tween soda in­take and weight gain.
