Lower in c​alories,
just as satisfying

Lower-calorie food can be just as delicious and substantial!
Here are ways you can make your meal a wholesome one.

Reasons to go light with substantial food

Science has shown that wholegrains, protein and fruits and vegetables are beneficial because they increase the feeling of being full after a meal.
Here’s how you can make each bite count:
Enrich your diet with wholegrains
Wholegrains contain insoluble dietary fibre (bulk) which makes them slower to digest than refined grains, keeping you fuller for a longer time.
Beef things up with lean meat & alternatives
Food rich in protein such as lean meat, seafood, eggs and milk tend to give a prolonged feeling of being full than carbohydrate and fat.
Get a boost with more fruits and vegetables
From apples to cabbages, soluble fibre in fruits and vegetables acts like a sponge and absorbs water, which keeps you feeling fuller for a longer time.
