sounds impossible, but there are actually certain foods that can
satisfy hunger cravings without packing on the pounds. The key is to
indulge in a meal that has a high satiety value, which describes how
filling the food is compared to its calorie content.
so-called “satiety index” measures the ability of various foods to make
you feel full and ultimately reduce your calorie intake over the course
of a full day. That kind of eating is what will keep the pounds off,
and some foods are just way better at both satisfying hunger and
discouraging overeating than others.
not just talking about rabbit food here, either. You can eat real,
satisfying food yet stay slim and healthy. In fact, #7 is a straight up
snack that you can eat all day long if you want! 1. BOILED POTATO:
Many people avoid potatoes due to their high carbohydrate content, but
there is no need for this. Potatoes are very nutritious as long as they
aren’t fried. More than that, potatoes contain resistant starch that
acts like soluble fiber in the digestive system. This helps you feel
full with fewer calories.
show that cooking and then cooling potatoes increases the level of
resistant starch. Heating and cooling them repeatedly further raises
that level. So not only are potatoes delicious and nutritious, but they
become more so when you eat them as leftovers.
WHOLE EGGS: Eggs, and especially egg yolks, have been unfairly
characterized as heart attack-inducing cholesterol bombs. But while they
do contain a fair amount of cholesterol, studies have shown that eating
eggs does not raise bad cholesterol levels. On the contrary, eggs
represent a complete protein, which means that they contain all nine
essential amino acids.
is a lot more filling than simple carbohydrates, so eating eggs in the
morning can keep you on a good track all day. One particular study found
that people who ate eggs for breakfast were able to lose more weight
and trim their BMI (body mass index) further than people who had a
OATMEAL: Oatmeal is a super filling dish because it contains a ton of
fiber and soaks up a lot of water when cooked. Yeah, it’s pretty bland,
but it can be flavored up so many different ways. Fruit, nuts, and brown
sugar are all great choices.
also have a lot of a type of insoluble fiber called beta glucan, which
has been found to slow the absorption of carbs and suppress appetite
throughout the day.
