Snacks that Keep You Full Longer
This was not so long ago for me. My breakfast consisted of cornflakes and tea and some fruit. Before I knew it I was hungry again and could not wait for lunch. I'd snack on some baked snacks throughout the day between meals. Sometimes when I was too hungry I'd even reach for the occasional bag of fried potato chips. My 'light' snacks were so light that my stomach probably didn't even register them entering it.

If I think about it now just this snacking probably took care of most of my daily calorie requirement. On a pure calorie basis I may have eaten more empty calories (food that adds calories to the diet without any nutrition) in these fillers than what I ate in my more wholesome meals. And not only did these foods make me hungry, but they also left me feeling unfulfilled on many other levels. They were just not nourishing enough.
Since then I've come a long way and I eat completely differently (I've also lost about 8 kgs and have dropped 3 sizes). My context of calories has changed and more fulfilling food that keeps me going longer is what I crave.
Though some of the options mentioned below are higher in calories these snacking ideas will take you a long way and on the whole eating these foods will not have you reaching out for that bag of chakris anytime soon.
