15 Low Calorie Foods That Keep You Full Longer!

October 23, 2019 Alanna 2 min read No Comments

We all wish there was some kind of magic 0 calorie food that would just expand in our stomach and keep us full, but there isn’t. So we have to use what we have.

The biggest hurdle in dieting is trying not to feel starved all the time, and keeping calories low for weight loss.

Here is a list that I have compiled of 15 low calorie foods that keep you full longer. I will post the name, the calories, serving size, and what I have found to work the best for me on a scale of 1 through 10 meaning 1 still felt hungry, 10 feeling very full.

FoodServing SizeCaloriesProteinRating
Oatmeal1/2 cup1385.5 g6
Greek Yogurt2/3 cup13011 g5
Soup8 oz906 g8
Applesauce1 cup166.4 g4
Lean Meats4 oz18535 g8

Cottage Cheese1 cup16328 g8
Chia Seeds1 ounce1374.5 g7
Popcorn1 cup3110
Egg Whites1173.6 g8
Skim Milk1 cup838 g5

You can combine multiple ingredients above for example putting some chia seeds in your oatmeal or add a little bit of chocolate syrup to your milk, if you are bored with regular milk.

I am a mom to 2 amazing girls. I reside with my fiance, my girls, and my 2 dogs and 1 cat in sunny Arizona. I enjoy writing about sensitive subjects and speak what others are thinking but don't always say. I am told at times I am very blunt, and I consider myself quite the realist. I am an activist as well, and the founder of Mothers 4 Recovery, a non-profit that helps mothers get clean. <3
