    What stops us from eating is not the calories taken in but rather the weight of the food. For e.g., if I eat brown rice with dal, I will feel satiated easily by having a small bowl, as compared to consuming white rice with dal in which case I would need a larger bowl.
  2. Low energy density
    Foods having lots of water have a low energy density since they are nutrient dense rather than calorie dense. Foods that are nutrient dense are: soups, salads, dry fruits, beans, fruits, vegetables, etc. Foods that are calorie dense are: mawa and misthan, bhajiyas, ice-creams, milk & milk solids – biscuits and cookies, creamy biscuits, chocolates, cakes and pastries, etc.
