When dieting – increase protein intake to 1.5g/kg bodyweight to increase satiety.
The option to cut carbs or fats is your choice.
If you find you are hungrier when dieting, cut you fats down. This means you can eat more carbohydrates for your calorie intake.
However, if you think that carbohydrates are your weakness and you over eat on those pastries! Drop the carbs. But be mindful that you won’t be able to eat as much food!
