Health Tip: Factors That Affect Fullness

It's not just how much you eat

(HealthDay News) -- Ever wonder why sometimes you feel more full than at other times, even if you haven't eaten as much?

The American Heart Association mentions factors that affect fullness:

  • How often you eat.
  • The amount of food you eat.
  • The type of food you eat. For example, high-fiber foods help you feel fuller faster and longer.
  • Your brain's signals to your body that you've eaten enough.
