After consuming food, energy is required to process it. This increase in metabolic rate is referred to as the ‘Thermic effect’ of food or ‘Diet induced thermogenesis’ (DIT). Planning meals based on this concept may help you to lose and control weight. Diet induced thermogenesis is one of three components of daily energy expenditure and although it is the smallest component, it could play a role in the management of weight control/weight loss through elevating metabolic rate, since different foods require varying amounts of energy for digestion.
