If you’re tired of all the crazy diet advice out there and simply want to eat less and be filled up more, you should know that potatoes will fill you up the fastest.

The Satiety Index measures food in terms of satisfying hunger and staving off cravings.

Losing weight might be far easier if we focus on how to eat the most filling foods.

In experimenting with satiety scores, researchers found that potatoes ranked absolute highest, whole grain-breads filled up 50% better than white breads, cakes and cookies were the least filling and popcorn is twice as filling as a candy bar or peanuts.

I’ll disagree with that last one as my movie experience proves that I could consume two extra-large tubs, but hey.. let’s focus on the positive.

Eat more potatoes and you’ll fill up faster!
