    Which foods/dishes fill you up the most?

    Hi All, I am still having problems with feeling hungry all the time despite just eating more, so wondered, which dishes fill you up the most or keep you going for longer?

    So far the record is held by pork with crackling (and nothing else, as I'm eating out, buy it in a bun and feed the bun to the pigeons). It's anything up to 7 hours after that before I start even thinking about food again.

    Meat. Beef especially. A steak or a nice piece of roast is awesome. Last night we made up a big skillet of ground beef with onions, shredded cauliflower, tomato sauce and little cheese and spices then ate that in napa cabbage leaves. I was stuffed. That was at 7pm and I wasn't hungry again until noon. I didn't even eat a tremendous amount. Threw some of the meat mix in with my eggs to break my fast.

    Of course these meat dishes I'm describing have a decent amount of fat in the cooking. I think the combination of that with a generous serving of veggies really satisfies.

    Thanks for the replies all.

    Definitely plenty of water - as I drink about 1.5 litres a day.

    Fats - I pour a load of organic olive oil on my salad, which also includes half an avocado and a spoon of coconut oil. Some days I will have some butter, but other than that - it's just the fat with the meat. Is that enough? I probably get through a bottle of olive oil every few weeks.

    Animal fat. Beef. Eggs.

    Ground beef cooked up in a load of bacon fat with cauliflower rice and collard greens (in a hash). Stuffed. For a long time.

    ETA: And the beef is 15% fat (grass-fed), so there's all that fat, too.

    Yep. That beef dish I mentioned above was cooked in bacon fat and was 15% fat grass fed. NOM.

    Yeah, Daisy. One of the nice things about that meal is it freezes beautifully, so I've always got something at-the-ready for those days when I'm pressed for time or just plain lazy. Also a nice bang for the buck because with all that cauli and the greens and onions (oh, I forgot to put down the onions above), it makes up a massive skillet.
