I recently started eating Greek yogurt. 1 cup of plain yogurt has 120 calories, and keeps me very full (almost too full) for hours. But I remember it being the same way for protein bars and protein shakes. A relatively low number of calories kept me satisfied for a long time. But now, with these (and other) foods, it seems they're less filling now than when I initially incorporated them into my diet. Does that make sense to anyone? Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Any foods high in protein or fibre should keep you fuller for longer.

I just recently started using Greek Yogurt too and I'm loving it!

Most greek yogurt has about 23 grams of protein in a cup- about the same as eating a steak! I know what you mean about satisfaction over time, but I also notice that these high protein foods work even when the satisfaction decreases.
