If You Are Wondering What That Sound Is...
When you've had an early, or light, lunch and it later sounds like there's a lion growling in your belly, there's a good chance the noise translates to "feed me." Scientists say your best bet is a less energy-dense, high-protein snack like yogurt,
which improves appetite control and satiety, and reduces the amount of food you're likely to eat later
(just watch the added sugars in low-fat, flavored yogurts). Cottage cheese
is another option; it has loads of protein and can be low in fat (look for the two-percent version).
