TEX­TURE IS KING

Women's Health (South Africa) - - BEST BODY -

The shake ex­per­i­ment sug­gests that vis­cos­ity is a ma­jor fac­tor in the feel­ing of full­ness. So BA­NANAS are a great food to keep you full. Make your own at-home smoothie. “Freez­ing your ba­nana be­fore adding it will make the tex­ture even thicker, which re­sults in an in­creased feel­ing of sati­ety,” says Camps. Just re­mem­ber, a ba­nana con­tains around 380kJ, so be mind­ful of what else you snack on be­fore lunch if you’re watch­ing your kilo­joule in­take.
