The area where most individuals struggle with fat loss is dieting

​Enjoy Today's Short Blog: How Resistant Starch Can Help You Lose Weight

More than 2/3 of US adults (70.2%) are classified as overweight or obese[1], and the forecasts indicate that this trend will only continue to increase in the coming years. Moreover, obesity is associated with several comorbidities, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, which are among the leading causes of death in the Western world.

In light of this epidemic, researchers are constantly searching for effective tools to help everyday individuals lose weight and keep it off.

As you likely know, losing weight ultimately boils down to achieving a consistent (daily) negative energy balance whereby an individual consumes fewer calories than their body requires to maintain his/her weight.

On the flip side, consuming more calories than you burn in a day (i.e. positive energy balance) leads to weight gain.

The area where most individuals struggle with fat loss is dieting.

It could be that the diet makes them feel restricted and/or deprived, and it could also be that the diet is leaving them feeling hungry all the time.

Whatever the reason may be, in order for any weight loss venture to be successful (and by “successful”, we mean that an individual loses weight and keeps it off), an individual’s diet and exercise plan has to be sustainable.

Today, we discuss one simple food you can add to your diet that can help boost satiety, improve blood glucose regulation, and enhance fat burning.

That food is a form of carbohydrate known as resistant starch.

What is Resistant Starch?

As the name implies, resistant starch is a form of starch (complex carbohydrate) that resists digestion in the small intestine and undergoes fermentation in the large intestine. In this sense, you can think of resistant starch as a form of dietary fiber.

As these starches ferment, they act as a prebiotic, feeding the “good” bacteria in the gut.

There are several types of resistant starch.

What Are the Different Types of Resistant Starch?

While the concept resistant starch seems pretty straightforward, there is an added layer of complexity to resistant starches as there isn’t one type of resistant starch, but four (or five) different types depending on which studies you read.[3,4]...........................................
