Want to know the secret to staving off hunger? It's simply eating foods that make
you feel full. High-fiber foods, like whole grains, vegetables, legumes and beans,
are digested more slowly, keeping you fuller for longer. While experts recommend
that we get 20-25 grams (women) or 25-30 grams (men) daily, most of us barely meet
the halfway mark.
Generally, the darker the color, the higher the fiber content.

BREADS & GRAINS
Whole grain breads: Select 7-grain, dark rye, cracked wheat, pumpernickel. Make sure
"whole wheat" or another whole grain is listed as the first ingredient.
Grains: Try bulgur wheat, brown rice, wild rice, and barley instead of white rice.
Cereals: Look for those with 5 or more grams of fibre per serving.
