When I did make a stab at IE a couple of years ago (and probably didn't try well, as I can see now) this was a major issue for me as well, so I'm interested in others' thoughts.

Like freelancemomma and lin43, I love to feel full. Love it. I'm a calorie counter and save about 50% of my daily calories for dinner. Even then, I choose very "filling" foods - leafy greens, protein, fats - with the old Volumetrics principles.
