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

post #1 of 12
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?

Anything high in protein. As protein takes longer to break down, it keeps us fuller for longer. Add additional egg-whites and have a larger omelette / protein shake. You are also very active, so your needs are different to normal folks.

I found that if i have an animal-protein-based meal i get hungry right away. That's true of steak as it is of eggs.   I love meat and eggs, but they don;t really keep me full.   

 

I don;t know others, but for me stuff like muesli lasts much longer in my stomach than eggs.  I normally have toast and butter and jam with coffee with lots of milk, but if i have to go a long time before eating again, i'll go for muesli.   Same for cheese, that seems to last a longer time than eggs.  For a while i tried having eggs for breakfast and was hungry already an hour later.  Morning, for me, means carbohydrate-based protein. Muesli is good (Alpen, e.g.) because the grains+nuts+milk make for a really complete protein that takes a longer time to digest.  .

A toasted bagel with flavored cream cheese would keep me going till dinner. Be honest with you after awhile I get sick of looking at food all day and do not feel like eating but drink plenty of liquids, all kinds

You have to know your own metabolism, it differs from other people.  If I ate Siduri's breakfast I'd pass out from a sugar spike an hour later.  A breakfast of eggs and oatmeal would keep me satisfied until late afternoon but it's obviously not cutting it for you.

 

Your metabolism is exceptionally high (I'm so jealous!!!) so rather than trying to eat one meal that will last you until the other, it's best to eat small meals throughout the day.  Continue eating your eggs and oatmeal as you like, but keep handy snacks with you, stored in your desk at work, in your work bag or pockets, or stored in the fridge.  Here as some really good snacks that fill you up.

 

Yogurts

Cheese and crackers

Fiber bars

Pretzels

Apple slices with peanut butter

Bananas

Nut and dried fruit mixes

Hard boiled eggs

Koukou, i honestly don;t even know what a sugar spike is.  I must have a very steady sugar level.  But i can tell you that an hour later, all those raw grains would still be in your stomach trying to be digested!  smile.gif

No, not for me dear.  When I eat a carbohydrate dense breakfast it elevates my blood sugar.  An hour later my blood sugar drops drastically and I'm left feeling weak and dizzy.  I am very sensitive to carbohydrates spiking my blood sugar, this is not an uncommon thing.  My doctor said there is nothing wrong with me, lots of people react like this to carb loading and to just be careful.  I always have peanuts on hand in my purse or run out for a yogurt in emergency situations.  After a few years of suffering with this I think I have found the correct ratio of protein to carbs to keep me satisfied.  I can have a whole meal of protein or a meal of heavy protein with light carbs.  A bagel with cream cheese doesn't cut it, that's more carbs than protein. I'd have to add an egg and some cheese to balance out those carbs.  Anyway, I'm trying to lose some baby weight now so I'm trying to stay away from too many carbs, no better way to cut some calories than to get rid of carbs.

Did you ever try muesli?  it's raw, whole grains (raw oatmeal, rolled wheat, etc) and i think it releases its carbohydrates VERY slowly.  The problem may be white flour, sugar, etc.

Yes I have tried it, but don't like it.  It doesn't matter anyway, even complex "slow" carbs pose a problem if they are not paired with sufficient protein in my diet.  It's an issue I have tried to resolve because during lent greeks are supposed to give up animal based proteins and I always run into trouble and end up dizzy and lethargic, so I eventually learned not to fast in this manner.  I enjoy bran and oats wheat flakes, but muesli is like bird food :(

I rarely eat a breakfast that I plan on keeping me full for a very long time as I prefer to eat many small meals a day. However there are days when I know I won't be able to have a meal for moe than six hours and then my go to is ouevos rancheros. For my version It takes about ten minutes. I am not sure of the total nutritional breakdown but I know I am not hungry for a very very long time. I use a soft tortilla (whole wheat, tomatoe, flour) on the bottom, beans next (canned cannelloni , pinto whatever I have) slightly mashed and warm, poached egg, spicy tomatoe sauce (canned tomatoe, cumin, s&p, ground spicy pepper), top with good shredded cheese tossed under a broiler. Top with cold avocado chunks. I make this for crew who expend a lot of energy between meals.
