We have compiled a list of the four most filling foods that help you lose weight. The key when it comes to weight loss is to eat healthy, low-energy, big portion foods. Some foods that are small in volume, therefore less filling, can yield high calories. Other foods, big in volume, yield a small amount of calories and can help you fill up. A combination of protein and fiber is always good as well.
The top 4
1. Baked potatoes.
With the introduction of fast-food and deep fryers, potatoes acquired a reputation of being unhealthy. Potatoes in fact carry a lot of fiber, good carbs, a lot of energy and vitamins. Eat them boiled or baked and enjoy the feeling of fullness for a few hours after.
Oatmeal carries a lot of fiber and its composure allows it to soak up water like a sponge, giving you that feeling of being full for a few hours. When soaked in water, oats take longer to pass through your digestive system, meaning you will go longer between meals.

Popcorn is a very low energy density food. It takes up a lot of room in your stomach and that big bowl in front of you tricks your brain into thinking that you have ate a lot of food. Great snack for weight loss.
A study found that people who eat eggs for breakfast consume about 350 calories a day less than those who don’t. Eggs carry complete protein, composed of all nine amino acids that your body can’t produce. Those acids get released in your digestive system and produce a hormone that suppresses hunger. Another great food for weight loss.
