The most filling foods which dont pile on the pounds tend to be those which are high in fiber or protein. Look for foods which are also rich with vitamins and nutrients rather than eating foods which necessitate supplements because they dont contain them. Oats are an example of a good filling start to the day as their high fiber content will leave you feeling satisfied for longer. If you dont get the morning munchies then the oats will have done a good job in controlling any unnecessary snacking. If you must snack then enjoy healthy fruit or vegetables. Vegetables and fruitsare most beneficial if you want to lose weight as low in calories and very tasty, if fresh and seasonal. Salads can make filling meals when accompanied by lean protein foods such as broiled chicken or fish. Whole grain bread is a healthy addition to a salad dressed in a good olive oil , which is an essential fat which lowers the risk of heart disease . Other healthy foods which are filling enough to stop one worrying about calories are lentils and beans. Beans such as foul medames are packed with fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals, and are so satisfying that they are used during Ramadam as a filling start to a day of fasting.
