Stay fuller for longer
It’s not just fibre-rich foods that help to fill us up. According to the British Nutrition Foundation, foods that are high in protein seem to make us feel fuller than foods that are high in fat or carbohydrates*. This means it makes sense to include a protein-rich food at every meal to keep us satisfied. And that’s where all fish – white, shellfish and oily – make a great choice as they’re all packed with protein.
