Foods to keep you Fuller for Longer

Have you ever consumed a couple of consecutive big meals just to feel hungry 40 minutes later? Well, if this has happened to you, odds you are not selecting the right foods with the appropriate satiety index.

In this article, we’ll explain the importance of high-satiety foods.

So, Why Is Satiety Important?

The modern-day market offers a variety or rather, an abundance of food products to choose from.

However, the thing is that the tastiest foods also happen to be more processed AND least satiating.

With poor nutrient profiles, these processed products simply satisfy your taste cravings, but hardly ever help you meet your actual nutritional needs.

When you’re not meeting your nutritional needs, well, your body keeps asking for more food by sending hunger signals, until you actually give the body what it needs.

That is to say that processed foods are NOT inherently fattening but instead, they make you eat a lot more which therefore leads to inevitable weight gain.

Being satiated for the longest time possible after each meal is important, as that means you have met your nutritional needs and your body has the resources to work with for the goal of sustaining healthy function.

What Actually Brings Satiety?

Every sensation or bodily signal in the body is closely related with the balance of certain hormones.

Specifically for appetite and satiety, leptin and ghrelin seem to be the two predominantly involved hormones.

The macronutrients you get from food, that are most effective in inducing the feeling of satiety, are protein & fat.

For this reason, it is of prime importance to meet your daily protein and fat needs, as

they will play an essential role in how hungry you feel throughout the day.

Remember that a hungry mind won’t be able to focus on other, also important tasks you have.

Stay satiated!
