Dietary Fat and Appetite Control in Obese Subjects

ExRx.net > Weight Management > Study

A high fat meal may lead to over-consumption of calories, particularly when hunger is high (light lunch). This over-consumption is not compensated for by reduced intake of calories later. Author's note: If you had a light meal, your next meal should be low in fat. A full meal should preceed a high fat ad lib meal. Dinner (ad lib)
