Including a meal with a high protein content helps you to feel fuller for longer as your body takes longer to digest the protein. It stays in your stomach for a longer period of time helping you to feel full. Protein also helps by being digested slowly to keep blood sugar levels stable. Adding a good portion of vegetables to meals means you are increasing fibre bulk to help fill you up as well as getting nutrients you need-especially important on a low calorie diet!
