What type of foods should I eat to promote satiety?

Judy Caplan
Nutrition & Dietetics

Fiber and fat filled foods promote satiety. Fiber makes you feel full because it expands in your stomach. Fatty foods increase satiety because they take long to digest. Fats and fiber both slow down the absorption of sugar. This leads to more stable blood sugars. Blood sugars play a role in determining hunger. These foods help shut off the hunger signal to your brain.

According to women’s Health Magazine these are the top ten foods guaranteed to keep you satisfied:

  • White potatoes
  • Eggs
  • Hot oatmeal
  • Beans
  • Fish
  • Soup
  • Apples
  • Beef
  • Salad
  • Popcorn
