Diet is one of the most important things to consider when preventing obesity. It's not necessarily how much you it, but what you eat. The food industry would love for us to stick to the high processed grain, high saturated fat, and hight artificial sugar diet that caused the obesity epidemic in the first place.

It's not necessarily how much you eat , but what you eat.

If your only goal is to lose weight, how much you eat is far more important than what you eat. All that matters is taking in less calories than you burn each day.

That said, it's true that certain foods will leave you feeling more full than others.

This kept my mother fat for decades up to the prediabetic test results.

She thought ( because nutritionists keep saying that ) the only way to lose weight was to stop eating the "wrong food" she wanted to eat, and she could never stick to the "good food" for more than a few weeks.

She lost 50 pounds when I did ( she wouldn't do it herself ) the unthinkable nutritionists said to never do : calorie counting to reduce portions of the same sugary crap food, so she could eat less of the same.

Her blood sugar went back to normal. She can stick to it ( it's been years ) because she still likes what she eats.

P.S. : If changing what you eat instead works for you, by all means do what you can stick to long term. Not everyone will succeed managing their weight the same way.
