Filling Foods

Protein never make me feel full. The only thing that make me feel full is carbs. For me eating eggs is like consuming air.

    I've heard a lot of people say that too, so you are not alone.
    Hows your fat/fibre macros in general? those can help with satiety. I'm the opposite, I need protein and fats to keep me fuller for longer.

    I am the same. Towards the beginning of my journey I would eat chicken like crazy in hopes to make myself feel full. It never worked. I'd eat a chicken breast and then 20 minutes later be ready for more. The same with veggies. They just don't keep me full. One thing that I have found to keep me full, and this is really weird, are things like beans. I ate a burrito bowl with a ton of black beans and have been full for going on 3 hours. Specifically it had black beans, chicken, mushrooms, sour cream, guacamole, and a tiny bit of salsa. Its the only thing I can eat that actually keeps me full and I have no idea why.

    I suspect the reason the burrito bowl kept you full is because of the fiber—-beans, guacamole, ingredients like that.

    Fat and protein here. Carbs are meh on the satiety scale for me, but still delicious :wink: Too bad peanut butter is so calorie dense.

    Or maybe just the fat (guacamole and sour cream). Or maybe, with all those things in it, unless they were unusually small portions, it was a crap-ton of calories.
