When it comes to enjoying a healthy lifestyle by being selective with what you eat, some foods have characteristics that are more beneficial for weight loss than others. If one of your goals is to lose weight, you'll love the tip below for how it can make your efforts easier.
You'll learn about an additional quality to look for in healthy foods and also see a list of 7 foods that fit the criteria.
FULLNESS FACTOR (FF)
The bottom line is that satiety, or the ability of a food to keep you full longer is what works to help keep your weight in check. And satiety is not just a matter of how much you eat, but also the foods you choose.

Developed by Australian researcher Dr Susanna Holt and her associates at the University of Sydney, the FF index does just that.
It ranks foods based on their satiety quotient after considering the calorie, protein, fibre, and fat content of foods.
The big advantage is that unlike GI and Gl, which only work with carbohydrate-rich foods, FF can be calculated for any food you can think of and gives you a complete picture of how long the food will keep you satiated – to not make you feel hungry again.

The article goes on to list foods with fewer calories that will keep you full. They include:
