Satiety

Satiety is a feeling of being full after a meal and as a consequence we do not eat again. It works through a complicated system of communication between the digestive system and the brain. As an example, foods with a high level of satiety contain proteins and foods with a low level of satiety contain simple sugars. Satiety is often confused with “satiation” which means that the desire to eat has ended after or during the meal. (1, 2)
