To combat this we have carefully selected the best foods that will help you feel fuller for longer and signal to your brain that you are full to help stave off those bad habits of binge eating and snacking on sugary foods. The best foods to provide a satiating effect on the stomach are foods rich in protein and fibre, below we will highlight 3 ways to help you combat hunger and lose weight through making the right choices.
