What these 5 common mistakes have in common is that they all make you hungrier, and hunger control is the key to fat loss.
It might seem counterintuitive to say that eating fat can help you lose weight, but when you consider it from the perspective of appetite control it makes perfect sense – fat fills you up while sugar and carbs stimulate your appetite.

The real secret is managing your hunger and planning all your meals and snacks in advance. You’ll be amazed at the results.
