Feel Full on Fewer Calories for PCOS Health Part 3

As we’ve been reporting, it may sound like a diet gimmick but low energy density foods can help you control your hunger by making you feel full on fewer calories. This, in turn, helps weight loss or better weight control to boost PCOS health.

Foods such as desserts, candies and processed foods are high in energy density, which means that just a small volume has a large number of calories.

Alternatively, some foods – such as vegetables and fruits – have low energy density. These foods provide a larger portion size to satisfy hunger with fewer calories.

Water content is a major factor at play here. So, too, are fiber and fat.

High-fiber foods – such as vegetables, fruits and whole grains – not only provide volume but also take longer to digest, making you feel full longer.

Another consideration is that most fruits and vegetables do not contain a lot of fat, which raises energy density. One teaspoon of butter, for example, contains almost the same number of calories as 2 cups of raw broccoli.
