    Hello all,

    I know some of you know which the 'filling foods' are - I believe WW do a list? Anyway, I was reading this article and thought it might be interesting for us to note the 'Top 10 Filling Foods'. The % is how much more filling they are than white bread.

    And the winners are:

    1. Potatoes (323% more satisfying than white bread)
    2. Fish (225%)
    3. Porridge/Oats/Oatmeal (209%)
    4. Apples (197%) and Oranges (202%)
    5. Wholewheat Pasta (188%)
    6. Beef (176%)
    7. Beans (168%)
    8. Grapes (162%)
    9. Wholemeal Bread (157%)
    10. Popcorn (154%)

    For all the science stuff see the full article here:
    The World

    Hmmm, maybe we should be eating plenty of these? I was particularly (pleasantly) surprised to note fish on there - excellent stuff!

    Hope it's helpful to some of you :)

    Thanks ladies - glad to hear that the list might be of use to people. It just made me think that was all. And I was quite glad to see some of the stuff on there is relatively low-pointage which is even better :)
