It is important that clients feel satisfied by the food they eat.
I make a distinction between feeling full and feeling satisfied and from my point of view this is very significant.
'Feeling full' is the physical feeling of engorgement after a meal. You could feel full after a super sized plate of lettuce but would you feel satisfied?
Feeling satisfied is a totally different experience which involves countless hormones and neurotransmitters. What contributes to feelings of satiety is poorly understood. What studies have shown is that certain foods such as chocolate induce feelings of pleasure and satisfaction by stimulating reward centres in the brain.
While much of the research has been on chocolate, I encourage my clients to examine the foods that make them feel satisfied. These foods can successfully be incorporated into a diet that makes them feel good physically and emotionally.
