What food/drink keeps you full for the majority of the day?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I love to eat! I play tennis which keeps me in shape, but i eat a lot as well. For breakfast i eat 2 eggs with toast and oatmeal, but im hungry like an hour later. And it's the same for everything else I've tried.
Is there any drink or specific food that has kept you full for a while?

When I put about a teaspoon of chia seeds in a bottle of water it tends to keep me full most of the day. It's also really healthy for you.

Yes, chia seeds or any high fiber food will help keep me full.  As an athlete, I like to include about 3 eggs worth of protein (approximately 18-20 grams) with breakfast or with whatever meal is closest to my workout, dance practice or just child care (definitely a workout).  Also, if I want to make my breakfast last longer without just eating more carbs and affecting my blood sugar, I love to eat healthy fats like butter (preferably grass fed), raw cream, and coconut oil or coconut butter.

Porridge for me is a big help - always seems to keep me going throughout the morning. 

 

Then I just drink lots of water. It's probably the thing that has had the most impact on my energy levels. I started drinking lots of water about 6 months ago, it's helped my be more alert for much longer period of the day.

 

Can't recommend it enough!
