5 tricks to feel fuller for longer
1 Up the protein.
Eating slightly larger portions of lean protein such as fish and eggs.
2. Turn off the TV.
If you’re distracted while you’re eating you’re more likely to miss the “I’m full” signals that your stomach sends to your brain when you’ve had enough to eat.
3. Fill up on fibre.
Ever wondered what’s so funny about those salads? Its the realisation that fibre-rich foods are more filling. Try adding beans and pulses to salads and soups for that high fibre kick.
4. Choose foods that take time and effort to eat.
Corn on the cob. Crunchy Salads. Fish with bones. All these things can not be rushed. The slower you force yourself to eat the longer you’ll feel fuller.
5. Drink water before you eat.
Try a large glass of vegetable juice or fizzy water 10 minutes before you’re due to sit down.
