Why does eating fruit make me hungry?

    Fruit is primarily carbohydrate, and eating carbs alone won’t satisfy your hunger; you digest carbs the quickest, protein and fat slower. To give fruit that stick-to-your-ribs quality, pair it with a small amount of protein, which digests slower than carbs and has a high satiety factor -- in other words, it satisfies hunger. Good protein options: an ounce of cheese, ½ cup of cottage cheese, or an ounce of nuts.
