Legume-based meals have been shown to keep you feeling fuller longer than meat based products. Protein-rich legumes contain more fiber than mean based products which help you feel full longer. There are many legume recipes available to try if you are looking for something without meat that will keep you from feeling hungry.
- You'd probably guess a slab of meat would keep you satiated for hours longer than a dish full of beans. But, you'd be wrong, according to a new study from the University of Copenhagen.
- Legume-based meals (think: beans, peas, lentils), researchers say, are more satisfying and better at staving off hunger than a meat-based dish made of pork or veal.
- The high-protein legume meal kept the men fuller longest; it delayed hunger and created a greater amount of fullness compared to the high-protein meat and low-protein legume patties.
"The men also self-reported changes in hunger before they ate and every half hour after for three hours."
