Well, unfortunately, we have not discovered such food yet, so we are still stuck watching out what we consume and carefully crafting our dieting plans in order to remain fit and as healthy as possible.
However, there are some foods that you should prioritize because over a mixture of factors, are actually filling you up better than some other foods. The foods that are high in protein and fiber are on the main focus here, because they live up to their promise, and without further ado, here are the best filling foods for you!
Foods That Cannot Make You Fat
- Broccoli – the broccoli contain a high amount of fiber and water, meaning that there are relatively few calories per one serving. If you’re ever trying to figure out the best way to fill up your dinner plate, by covering half the plate with broccoli you will fill up yourself good! Because the broccoli, as we already mentioned, are packed with fiber, they will keep up your digestion regular. Also, the broccoli are high in calcium, which supports strong bones.
- Eggs – some people see the eggs as the golden source of protein, and there is a reason why people drink them in the morning, raw. The eggs are quite inexpensive, they can be made in thousand different ways, and one of the most convenient ways of providing yourself with nutrient rich protein. Also, the eggs contain plenty of Vitamin D. So, if you’re looking to get a great protein kick start of your day, crack open a couple of eggs.
- Quinoa – even though most of us still have difficulties pronouncing the word quinoa, its is without any doubt the best food that you can turn to and put more of it on your dinner plate every day. The quinoa is filled with something called complete protein, that contains essential amino acids, necessary for the dietary requirements of a person. This is something that is typically found in lean meats, poultry, eggs, fish and dairy. This means that the plant based foods can give you some of the key benefits of eating meat. And even though the amounts are small, they are efficient. Also, the quinoa is an amazing source of fiber. This is why the quinoa can improve your good cholesterol levels, health of the colon and increase satiety, leaving you full for a longer period of time.
- Lean beef – there has been a considerable fuss in the media about the red meats. Some claim that it may be carcinogenic, others laugh at such notion and encourage people to continue consuming red meat on a regular basis. We are very comfortable letting the science get to the bottom of this while occasionally consuming the red meat. One thing can we be certain about – the red meats are filled with protein, Vitamin B12 and iron. Even though it can be quite high in fats, it will not do you harm to squeeze some of it into your macro goals.
- Salmon – isn’t the salmon filled with fat? Yes, it definitely is. But the salmon contains plenty of omega 3 fatty acids which are very beneficial for both the mind and the body. So, when we mentioned earlier that the broccoli should fill half of your plate, the other half is preferred to be filled with salmon.
- Chicken – the chicken is by far one of the best protein sources that exist. Even though the chicken may contain a lot more calories than the veggies, it will provide your body with plenty of energy and protein that will prevent you from feeling excessively hungry through the rest of the day after you’ve consumed it.
- Bison – this is a food that has recently started to leave its mark on the mental landscapes of the health conscious health eaters. If you have never tried it, we encourage you to do so as soon as you get the chance. The bison is much leaner than the leanest beef that exists. Only a 3.5 ounce of serving contains 2-3 grams of fat compared to the considerably 8 to 9 ounce of serving from beef.
- Celery – even though the celery is often referred to as the negative calories food, it is not to be taken in a negative way. Quite the contrary, it is really hard to overeat on something that is not worth worrying about the calories. And believe it or not, some people enjoy the taste of the celery. If you happen to be one of them, you should absolutely incorporate it in your dieting plans. It is filled with nutrients, such as Vitamin A, K and C, fiber to boost your digestive health and will also do your heart and overall health a lot of good.
- Peas – unfortunately, these green little veggies are under appreciated in the health community. This is because of the aversion that plenty of people have towards them, and especially because they have filled such a big part of the plate when we were all children, and despised them. But the peas deserve a lot more than you think. The peas are proven to be an excellent source of fiber, antioxidant, micronutrients, vitamins, minerals, thus making them a powerhouse of nutrition. A single cup of peas contains hundred calories but packed with nutrients.
So, this was not so complicated after all, right? Most of these foods can already be found in the kitchen, and if you keep them well stocked, they are not even very hard to find too.
One of the best things is that all of these foods included on this list go well if you pair them together. Start mixing them up and enjoy a healthier lifestyle for yourself.
