Hunger pangs can derail a weight-loss program, but the Environmental Nutrition newsletter offers an easy strategy.
Eating foods that are rich in fiber, protein, and healthy fats will make you feel more full, for a longer time.
Healthy Foods that Fill You Up
Oatmeal is high in soluble fiber, which slows digestion.
Almonds and other nuts offer fat, protein, and fiber.
Eggs are high in protein and low in calories.
Rye bread tends to be more satisfying than other breads, perhaps because it is high in fiber.
Greek yogurt is rich in casein protein, which slows digestion.
Beans offer a fullness boost and plenty of nutrients.
Avocados lower the desire to overeat by providing healthy monounsaturated fat. They're good sources of fiber, potassium, several vitamins, and healthful fat.
A new study found that healthy (but overweight) adults felt fuller, and had less desire to eat over the next five hours after adding avocado to their lunch—and only added about 112 calories.
Salmon is loaded with protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
