Updated 12 June 2013 Keep full for longer Eating foods which are lower in glycaemic index can help you to feel full for longer. 0 Eating foods which are lower in glycaemic index can help you to feel full for longer. The glycaemic index (GI) of foods is a way to measure how quickly carbohydrates are digested and absorbed, and therefore foods with a low GI are slowly digested and absorbed.Eating low GI foods for breakfast and lunch will help you to feel fuller during the day and therefore make you less likely to snack on other high-fat and sugar-rich foods. Choose low-GI and seed breads, basmati rice or durum wheat pasta as your carb for lunch times to help curb any afternoon cravings. If you need to snack, enjoy some seasonal citrus or a pear in the afternoon. Eating a small yoghurt with fruit helps to lower the GI further.
