    I find white rice is the most appetite suppressing food for me. Which is weird - I can devour a KG (that's 1000g) of potatoes with chilli in a sitting and still have room for dessert, but 150g uncooked white rice? Struggle to get it down.

    Each to their own, I guess.

    Though I suspect if you eat a piece of raw liver with mashed banana, raw eggs and cabbage topped with a sprinkle of chilli pepper and a squirt of lemon juice, that would damn well kill anyone's appetite.

      Hey Choco, how do you prepare your round steak?
      Thanks.

        There is another thread here with a link to a long story about how junk food companies make food addictive.

        This is from the scientists trying to work out how to make soldiers field rations more appealing:

        “They liked flavorful foods like turkey tetrazzini, but only at first; they quickly grew tired of them. On the other hand, mundane foods like white bread would never get them too excited, but they could eat lots and lots of it without feeling they’d had enough.”

        This contradiction is known as “sensory-specific satiety.” In lay terms, it is the tendency for big, distinct flavors to overwhelm the brain, which responds by depressing your desire to have more. Sensory-specific satiety also became a guiding principle for the processed-food industry. The biggest hits — be they Coca-Cola or Doritos — owe their success to complex formulas that pique the taste buds enough to be alluring but don’t have a distinct, overriding single flavor that tells the brain to stop eating.


        I reckon that is why I overeat when I eat boring food, but eat less when the food is yummy. It makes sense that not everyone experiences this reaction to the same extent.

            Guiness. Can't eat anything after three Guiness. Not sure if I would base a diet around it however

              It sounded grosser when I typed it.

              Then I realised, crap, cook it right and it would be bloody fantastic.

                I do not know the others, but it works for me. I found that working out in fasted state doesn't make me hungrier, on the contrary: I almost have to force me to eat. I think it is just the proof that once you activate the fat burning mechanisms you are no more that dependent on food.

                  I still maintain that different people have different mechanisms of satiation, so that fat satiation and protein and bulk satiation are all valid approaches, and one have to find the best that suits him or her. Look at the potato (90+ starch) vs fat (90+ % fat) fasts, very pure experiments on satiation. There are people who can't manage 1000 calories a day on either, they are so stuffed. But they are not the same people. Volumetric satiation is completely feasible for some, and leave others wanting. You can fit any macro approach into clean eating. So, why fight about it and try to prove that one is superior to another? Pick one, try it for 4 to 6 weeks, if it doesn't work, then move on.

                    For me it is water. It is the best way to freshen up and be bloated without eating.

                      Of course fat works for satiety and putting a stick of butter in your coffee will sure make you feel full, no doubt about that! But scientific studies shows over and over again that protein is the most satiating of the macronutrients for the majority of people, when you calculate the total load of calories, and that's most relevant here...

                        Chicken breast may sound boring, but wrap it in aluminum foil with lemon, garlic and rosemary and bake it in the oven - that's next to zero added calories and it adds volumes of flavor.
                        Not really for me.
                        I think a lot depends on the individual. If volumetrics worked for everyone, there would be thin women everywhere.
                        There is something about the mouthfeel of fat that satisfies.

                        I can overeat bacon and fat all day long. It is really easy- you are 100% right that it is pretty easy to eat 1000 calories of fat lickity split. But if I just eat lean protein and carbs..... at some point I just get the sugar cravings. Yesterday is a great example- lots of lean protein- chicken breast and salad, protein rich smoothie, not much fat and around 3pm I would have killed you for a piece of cheesecake. If I just up the fat a bit- eggs for breakfast cooked with butter, steak and dressing on my salad, 3pm looks a lot different.

                        For me, the best appetite suppressent is not food, it's exercise, specifically sprints/HIIT kills my appetite.

                            Maybe you should try to spread a little wisdom as well?

                              I tried to satiate on fat, even tried the fat fasts, on butter, coconut and macadamia nuts. Usually I lasted to about 4 pm, when I started to scream for protein. I inevitably ended up overeating on those days. Fat leaves me empty and fatty meats just pack on pounds on me like crazy. I am afraid to touch pork, and as much as I love roast chicken, even a small amount makes me 2 lbs heavier the next morning

                                Just to back the discussion with a little science, not that I think that the die-hard fatlovers will be convinced though:

                                "It is well established that under most conditions, protein is more satiating than the isoenergetic ingestion of carbohydrate or fat (8, 11-13). This suggests that a modest increase in protein, at the expense of the other macronutrients, may promote satiety and facilitate weight loss through reduced energy consumption (20). The increased satiety from protein has been observed in a single meal (21, 22) and over 24 h (23)."

                                Protein, weight management, and satiety
