Imagine two planes taking off the runway for a destination.
One plane has fuel that quickly shoot the plane up to the sky, but then crashes back down once the plane reaches the earth.
The other plane gets to the sky a little bit slower, so the fuel lasts longer, and gives the pilot enough time to realize he’s getting low on fuel and to re-fuel!
This is what fat gives you.
Good fat gives you leeway.
You’re full for hours and then you slowly notice yourself getting less full.
As you notice less fullness, you can eat again.
I hope this analogy helps!
