FOODS TO CURB YOUR APPETITE!
|ORANGES| An orange is one of the most satisfying grabs from the fruit bowl thanks to all that fiber. Oranges were the highest-ranked fruit on the “satiety index,” a list of 38 filling foods put together by Australian researchers. And fiber fights fat: people who eat more fiber have less flab.
|POTATOES| Three times as filling as a slice of white bread, potatoes top all of the foods on the satiety index. Plus, the resistant starch in potatoes help your body burn fat, too.
|GOAT CHEESE| Cheese has 76 calories for each ounce. Fresh goat cheese, gives you a dose of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which helps you feel full and burn more fat. Cheeses bought from grass-fed animals have the most CLA.
|FETA CHEESE| Feta cheese also packs a conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) punch, which helps you feel full and burn more fat.
|FILLING SPRING SALADS| This spring salad features roasted asparagus, goat cheese, and toasted pine nuts. Pienuts have 95 calories for 1/2 ounce (about 84 nuts). The heart-healthy fatty acids in pine nuts boost satiety hormones that make you feel full, according to Korean researchers. The same fatty acids also keep belly fat at bay.
|EGGS| Eggs have 78 calories each. Eggs are not only a nutritional powerhouse, they’re also loaded with protein that satisfies. It is recommended eating eggs for breakfast to help curb your appetite through the day. You’ll have about 330 calories less than usual.
|SKIM MILK| Skim milk has just 86 calories per cup. Milk’s proteins — whey and casein — can make you feel more satisfied than sugary drinks. The conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in milk fights fat, too.
|DARK CHOCOLATE| Dark chocolate has 170 calories per ounce. If you eat dark chocolate, you’ll eat less at your next meal because compounds in chocolate slow down digestion and make you feel full longer. A small piece of chocolate (aim for the size of a business card) can also curb your cravings for salty, sweet, and fatty foods.
