Nutritionist Rutenstein: legumes can reduce appetite, acting like the drug Ozempic

Nutritionist Michelle Ruthenstein named legumes among the foods that effectively reduce appetite.

Some foods are reliable appetite suppressants, so eating them helps less eat and get rid of extra pounds. Nutritionist Rutenstein told the Daily Mail about such products, noting in passing that the first lines on their list are occupied by rich sources of protein.

In particular, chicken eggs, which the specialist advised to eat for breakfast, help reduce appetite.

According to Rutenstein, natural fermented milk products in the form of cottage cheese or yogurt also seem to have an effect on sugar levels. Their use also prevents outbreaks of too strong an appetite, which provokes overeating.

Another group of foods that curb increased appetite are rich sources of fiber, which swells in the digestive tract, creating a feeling of fullness and satiety. Among products with fiber, a special place is occupied by legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas, peas), which, in addition to fiber, are saturated with vegetable protein. Rutenstein said legumes may reduce appetite, acting similarly to the drug Ozempic.

“Legs contain soluble dietary fiber, which increases the secretion of the hormone GLP-1 in the intestines. The production of this compound is also activated by the popular weight loss drug Ozempic, the expert said.
