10 hunger satisfying diet food swaps for weight loss

When you're dieting, hunger is the spectre at the feast. Always lurking, the sensation of never feeling full can really derail weight loss. Here are 10 hunger satisfying diet food swaps to keep weight loss on track. 

Protein food swaps are your best friend when dieting. Yes, carbs provide an immediate energy rush. But unless it's resistant starch (from green bananas or whole grains), sugar based carbohydrates only spike blood sugar and burn off quickly. Protein is slow burning fuel that will stick with you. And here's the best of the best. 

Shrimp: 4 ounce serving gives 16 grams of protein for only 80 calories. Choose raw, peeled and deveined. 
Low sodium turkey breast: Thin sliced 2-ounces servings give 9 grams of protein for 50 calories. 
Chunk light tuna packed in water: 25 grams of protein for 100 calories
Salmon: 24 grams of protein for 90 to 125 ca
Almonds: low protein but the combo of good MUFA fats provides satisfies and gives an energy wallop
Pumpkin seeds: more protein and they really fill you up
Edamame or black bean pasta: 25 grams of protein for 190 calories PLUS it really tames hunger
Dates: weird I know, lots of calories, but tons of energy and satisfaction
Oatmeal: fills you up and sticks with you
Greek yogurt: best dairy food swaps contain Greek yogurt so toss in some berries and you have a stick with you breakfast!
