Could eating lower fat foods help someone lose weight

The minimum calorie requirements for an adult male or female can vary based on factors such as age, activity level, and overall health. However, a general guideline is that adult males  & female typically require at least 1,800 to 2,200 calories per day to maintain basic bodily functions and health. This is just a rough estimate, and individual calorie needs can be higher or lower.

Calories in one gram of protein is around 4 calories, one gram of carbohydrate is 4 calories. But the calories in one gram of fat is 9. So consuming lower fat directly affects your calorie count. So just trying to make that slight adjustment can not only help protect yourself from heart disease but it will also decrease calorie consumption and help create a calorie deficit that could lead to a lose of weight as well. Remember this is in conjunction with a high protein diet as well as exercise. But as always please consult you Primary Care Doctor to make sure these adjustments are beneficial to your specific health profile.
