5 of the most important measurements for weight loss. Foods high in fibre help to bulk out the nutrients in the food and cause it to be digested slower, and so are especially good for weight loss and maintaining blood sugar levels. Most natural foods contain a high amount of water. Foods high in carbs will have a high glycemic index and be more satisfying, but if eaten too much will cause an insulin response that will quickly make you hungry again. As a general rule, you should look for foods with a balanced profile so that they give you enough energy, but are digested slowly.

All fats are prone to rancidity. Saturated fat is less prone to oxidisation. Saturated fats are better to cook with, followed by monounsaturated fat, then polyunsaturated fats. Saturated fats are also highest in energy.
