popcorn most filling foodHave you ever heard that popcorn is the secret to loss weight. There is a reason that you haven’t heard this because usually people eat popcorn that is unhealthy. This fast movie night snack is a low energy density food with only 90 calories. Popcorn is realy a filling food, you could eat 3 cups of air-popped corn but just a quarter cup of potato chips. Popcorn takes up more room in your stomach, and seeing a big bowl of it in front of you tricks you into thinking that you’re eating more calories and that you’ll feel full when you’re finished.

If you want to feel even fuller: Sprinkle on some red pepper. Purdue University conducted a study and found out that people who added a half teaspoon of the spice to a meal felt less hungry.

 

Figs

Although dried figs are available throughout the year, there is nothing like the unique taste and texture of fresh figs. They are lusciously sweet with a texture that combines the chewiness of their flesh, the smoothness of their skin, and the crunchiness of their seeds. They are a great natural cure for a sweet tooth, fresh figs have a dense consistency and sweet flesh that’s high in fiber (each 37-calorie fig packs about a gram), which slows the release of sugar into the blood, preventing the erratic high caused by cookies or cake.

If you want to feel even fuller: Halve and add protein, like a teaspoon of goat cheese and a walnut.

 

Oatmeal

Daily consumption of a bowl of oatmeal can lower blood cholesterol, because of its beta-glucan content. After it was reported that oats can help lower cholesterol, an “oat bran craze” swept the U.S. in the late 1980s, peaking in 1989. Oatmeal’s filling force comes from its high fiber content . There is also the uncanny ability of oatmeal to soak up liquid like a sponge. When cooked with water or skim milk, the oats thicken and take more time to pass through your digestive system, meaning you’ll go longer between hunger pangs.

If you want to feel even fuller: Sprinkle almonds on top of your bowl. “The nuts pack protein and fiber and contain unsaturated fats that can help stabilize insulin levels,” regulating blood sugar, Dr. Katz says.

 

Wheat berries

A wheat berry or wheatberry is an entire wheat kernel (except for the hull), composed of the bran, germ, and endosperm. Botanically, it is a type of fruit called a caryopsis. Wheat berries have a tan to reddish brown color and are available as either a hard or soft processed grain. They are often added to salads or baked into bread to add a crunchy texture. If wheat berries are milled, whole-wheat flour is produced.
Wheat berries are whol wheat kernels that contain one of the highest amounts of protein and fiber per serving of any grain 6 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. The Protein will trigger the hormone ghrelin to tell our brain that we are satisfied and fiber activates appetite-suppressing gut hormones.

If you want to feel even fuller: Do what celeb chef Ellie Krieger, RD, does: Toss wheat berries with apples, nuts and other diet-friendly foods to make a super tasty salad (that’s her recipe at right).

 

Smoothies

smoothies for easy dietA smoothie (occasionally spelled smoothee or smoothy) is a thick beverage made from blended raw fruit or vegetables with other ingredients such as water, ice, dairy products or sweeteners. The health of a smoothie depends on its ingredients. Many smoothies include large servings of fruits and vegetables which are recommended in a healthful diet. However, too many sweet fruits can lead to too much sugar. Similarly, ingredients such as protein powders, sweeteners, or ice cream are often used in smoothie recipes, but are not necessarily healthful. While most beverages don’t satisfy hunger very well, drinks blended full of air are an exception: They cause people to feel satiated and eat less at their next meal, according to a Penn State University study. Just be sure you’re not whipping your smoothie full of sugary, caloric ingredients like fruit juices or flavored syrups, which will negate the health benefits.

If you want to feel even fuller: Put ice and fat-free milk or yogurt in a blender, add in fruit and give it a whirl. Try strawberries, which are extremely low in energy density—they’re 92 percent water!—and bananas, which are loaded with resistant starch.
