There are certain foods that promote satiety (the feeling of fullness that comes after a meal) more than others. These are low GI. While they're not miracle foods, they can help you eat less over the course of the day. When you're looking for foods that are going to keep you fuller for longer, look for ones high in fibre, healthy fats and protein, or with a high water content. The additional benefit is that a lot of these foods are also really good for you and packed with important nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
This portable fruit is the perfect snack, with a high water content and both kinds of weight-busting fibre: soluble, which helps prevent blood sugar spikes that lead to cravings, and insoluble, which helps fill you up. A medium apple is about 85 percent water with 5 grams of soluble fibre, making it a snacking powerhouse. Apples also contain quercetin, a flavonoid shown to help fight certain cancers, reduce cholesterol damage and promote healthy lungs.
TIP: Organic apples are worth the extra cost because commercial apples retain more pesticide residue than fruits you peel, such as oranges or bananas. And with half the fibre and most of the iron, magnesium and vitamin C, you definitely want to eat that peel to get the full slimming benefits.
