Do you ever eat lunch only to find yourself hungry again hours later? It’s likely because there’s simply not enough fat in your diet. (I promise, fat won’t make you fat.) It’s dietary fat that helps increase satiety and decrease sugar cravings. (I’m talking about healthy, real food fats… not Crisco.)
