According to a latest survey, the top ten most filling foods are, in no particular order:

    Porridge, oats, oatmeal
    Apples and oranges
    Wholewheat pasta
    Beans and lentils
    Wholemeal bread

The foods listed above contain one or more of the following:

Protein – foods such as wholemeal bread, beans and lentils are all a good source of protein.

Fibre – wholemeal bread contains energy-giving complex carbohydrates.

Water Content – foods such as apples, oranges and grapes contain a high water content promoting a feeling of fullness.

Volume – popcorn is only 55 calories per cup, and takes up a lot of room in the stomach making you feel full up quicker.

Chemical Compounds – beans and lentils contain anti-nutrients which delay their absorption.

“Chew-ability” – chewing fruit such as apples promotes satiety partly because it slows down eating, but also because it encourages the release of enzymes which the brain interprets as fullness in the stomach.
