    Almost any non-starchy vegetables can add good bulk, as well as fiber, good micro nutrients, etc. Brassicas (Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages, etc) are some of my favorites. Legumes are good, too; I like lentils for being easy to prep and pretty versatile.

    Lean proteins are always good choices for that, too. Chicken breast, shrimp, fish, etc.

    I love cauliflower and recently found out that I Ike cabbage in place of lettuce (which I hate) for salad. When it gets hot outside I hate to cook so I always keep some cauliflower in the fridge for snacking. It's grill season too which is good for chicken breast and fish. I loved shrimp when I was younger but I just can't get past the texture now.

    I usually don't eat until after noon but my son goes on summer vacation in a few days so I'll be getting up and moving a lot earlier than normal.

    Fat and protein keep me feeling satisfied. Non starchy vegies add volume, and make me feel like I've eaten a lot but don't "last" long imo.

    I always think that's going to be a great idea. Then I eat it and feel like I'm full of gas and want to vomit.

    I was suprised at this but I've recently discovered putting 20g of oats in smoothies oddly filling.

    Hot jello pudding mix - the whole 4 serving packet is under 150 cals depending on milk used.

    Protein fluff if you feel a binge coming will make you feel very very full and bloated. (Personally I like the egg white kind but each to their own.)

    Massive salads with ridiculously large amounts of lettuce and cucumber can go with almost any meal or as a snack on their own. Super low calorie.

    Bagel thins 130 cal each bagel and just as filling as a normal bagel.

    Egg white scrambled with vegtables spinach and smoked salmon. Lots of veg!

    Tins of baby carrots.

    Basically protein powder mixed with milk, other stuff and Xanthan gum. Turns into this really big bowl of fluffy whip stuff that fills you up soooooo much. A 300 calorie bowl of this and you will feel like you've just had an entire dinner lol.

    I'll get back to replies more specifically later on but I found a good link for anyone else that has no idea what this protein fluff stuff is!

    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/protein-fluff-3-quick-and-easy-recipes.html

    I really didn't like anything sweet before I started losing weight but now I crave sweets occasionally and this sounds like a great way to fulfill those cravings!!

    I am curious though, would this be something good for a young (7 year old) child? My son is extremely skinny for his height, naturally, and with his ADD medication, he sometimes has a hard time eating unless it's something he really enjoys which is usually sweets.

    I haven't really thought about what fills me up when I eat so I have no idea. I did eat a lot of protein for dinner last night though and was hungry again within an hour. Yesterday was also one of the days when I stayed awake after putting my son on the bus and started eating at 7am which always throws my whole day off. I think I need to start paying attention to how I feel after eating different things.

    I do know that whenever I have spaghetti with whole wheat noodles I end up feeling TOO full after eating a small amount though!

    In Japan, the konjac root is used to make shirataki noodles. They're extremely low in energy, and can be used as a replacement of noodles or pasta. Just make sure you coat them in flavourful sauce, because they are tasteless.
