When you limit your food intake, taking in fewer caloris than your body requires in a day, your metabolism is fooled into thinking you're starving and slows down so you burn calories much more slowly. However, by maintaining a constant diet of low fat, high fiber foods keeps you're metabolism going and gives you more energy to be active and brun more calories.
