  • Does nutrient density produce satiety?

    A few days ago I made a stew with grass fed bison heart and have been curiously satisfied with small servings of this stew. While I have noticed something similar when eating liver I have always attributed it to liver not being my favorite thing. Bitter greens are along the same line. I quite enjoy them, but I just figured I didn't want to eat as much because of the more assertive flavors. The heart got me thinking though. It tastes pretty much like other cuts of bison, but I got full so fast. Is there a link between nutrient density and satiety? Just a loose hypothesis...

    I'm thinking there may be a correlation. I find I can't eat too much grass-fed beef in one sitting. It could be the fat. Or maybe not.

    I like your hypothesis!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

      I make my own vegetable broth from vegetable scraps. Then I make veggie soup from the broth. After about 1/2 cup of the stuff I have to force myself to eat the rest of the soup and lunch. At first I thought it was because I didn't like the taste; but it didn't feel like that. It was more like an antioxidant shock.

          I find soups and stews to be very filling too,it seems to just be the nature of the beast imo. I some beef soup a few days ago and it lasted for 6 meals,which is a lot around here.
          Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own experience.

          In the mind of the beginner, there are many possibilities; in the mind of the expert, there are few.

            i think satiety isn't attributable to just one thing, but i think that without a doubt nutrient density plays a roll. being nourished is a great thing!

              I find that I don't eat very much Bone broth in one sitting...no matter how hungry I am...

              Doesn't make a damn bit of sense. I mean it's basically water and minerals (along with a little fat) right?

                Chicken and shellfish are meats that I can eat the required amount of and will always be hungry again by the end of the day. I've stopped trying to eat just chicken/shrimp/scallops/ect. I have some of the above item and eat beef for the rest of my protein.

                Even if I eat added fat with the chicken or shellfish - I still get hungry later - especially with shellfish.
                Cow is the best meat choice for me.

                  You are correct, stews are quite filling. When I have made stews with beef roast I tend to eat about twice as much for a meal as I have been eating of the heart stew.

                  Of course. I just hadn't considered the role of nutrient density before. If nutrient density does indeed play a role, I wonder, by what mechanism does the brain recognize nutrient content?

                    I know that protein provides more satiety per calorie than fat and carb.

                    Yes, I think you're onto something that nutrient density also produces more satiety. As to the mechanism - well it's bound to have a psychological component. Perhaps also our olfactory centre can be programmed to register foods that have a high nutrient density and even to favour foods that are high in nutrients that our body is running low on. That would explain pregnant women having food cravings for strange combinations of foods or even reportedly eating soil or cement because they are deficient in certain minerals.

                      Paleo-bunny, I'm glad you brought up Pica. That may be an interesting link. I will have to look up some of the research on that one.
