I have been told by weight loss experts that fruit and veggies are what they call “filling foods” and that eating an apple or some broccoli is a great way to curb your hunger. I want to believe this, I really do, but time and time again my body tells me this is false.
I ate about 2 cups of pineapple this morning for breakfast and guess what? An hour later my stomach is growling.
There is no question in my mind that eating the pineapple was a good choice. I know that foods like these are good for me and that my body will reap the benefits in due time. But filling? No, they are not. The experts definitely are lying.
If they are so filling, why am I starving about 15 minutes after I eat it? Why is it that what the experts call, “non-filling foods”, such as a nice fat dinner roll, or a plate of fried rice actually make me feel more full?
So, sorry experts, but pineapple is not a “filling” food. The truth is, it’s good for you and eating that opposed to some kind of fatty carb will help you be healthy and lose weight. But we need to accept the fact that to lose weight, sometimes we are going to be hungry. The reality is that the truly filling foods, i.e. the breads and pastas and chips, make you fat.
