Food is a monster. If you’re trying to shed weight or simply to get through breakfast to lunchtime, your days will be more enjoyable when you’re not stricken by a rumbling stomach.
There are many foods that possess a trifecta of wonderful qualities: high in nutrients moderate in calories and super-filling. The best part is, they’re pretty tasty as well.
Here are some of our top picks.

Raspberries are moderately low in calories and rich in fiber and therefore are very filling fruits. One full portion (123 grams) contains just 64 calories and offers eight milligrams of fiber.
