What you eat, or don’t eat, at one meal, directly impacts how soon you eat, what you choose to eat and how much you eat at the next meal.
Satiation is hunger suppression in the short term, and satiety is hunger suppression in the long-term. We want to eat foods that provide both.
Satisfaction, a term I use to distinguish craving or pleasure aspects of food from purely hunger reducing aspects, is also important. Texture and tastes are important here. Salt, sugar, fat and starch usually come along in high calorie foods, yet using enough, but not too much in cooking may be essential
Protein is the king of reducing hunger. Carbs next. Fat last. If you want to reduce your hunger, then amplify protein intake above all else.
The combination of fat and starch, or sugar, may actually trigger cravings for more highly palatable food according to some studies.
Combination of macronutrients are more hunger reducing than single macronutrients. Adding fat to protein, carbs to protein or fat to carbs are all more satiety inducing.
Low carb diets, and keto-diets, are likely hunger reducing due to the protein content, and the generation of ketones, NOT the fat.
Fiber is a great hunger fighter, but only the highly viscous or sticky fibers seem to do the trick. Adding fiber and protein together would seem wise, as doing so provides great hunger suppression with a low calorie load.
Chew your food for longer, and choose solid calories over liquid ones when possible
When taking calories in through liquids, make sure you drink those that have thick, creamy and airy consistencies.
Food labeling and perception matter. If you believe a food will fill you up, and it is rich in protein, thickening fibers and calories, it likely will.
What do Net Neutrality, ClimateChange, Racism, and Poverty all have in common? They’re all ’Wicked Problems.” .
Pretty much any cause we care about is a WickedProblem, and we spend every waking minute at PocketChange thinking about and figuring out how to address them. Check out this little video we made to learn more about what the heck they are, why they matter, and how it will help you understand our world just a little bit better.
Learn to recognise the difference between emotional and physical hunger. Are you really hungry???⠀
• Builds gradually ⠀
• Felt below the neck (growling stomach)⠀
• There is no sense of compulsion ⠀
• Occurs several hours after a meal⠀

• Persists despite fullness⠀
• Leads to guilt and shame after eating
Employees from People's United Bank, along with friends from Care One and Riverside Industries helped our regular volunteer crew power through sorting and packing food items in our warehouse today. They provided the equivalent of 7,141 meals to hungry individuals in the region. Thank you all!
