Weight loss: Potato in your diet WON’T make you gain weight thanks to satiety index score | Diets | Life & Style

The humble potato has another trick up its sleeve. It scores highly on the “satiety index”, which is a measure of how full and satisfied after eating a food leaves people.

Tested and put together by Susanna Holt of the University of Sydney Australia in 1995, the index discovered the highest score was achieved by the potato.

She recruited volunteers and asked them to eat a single, 240 calories portion of each of the 38 foods.

After consuming each food, participants were asked to rate their hunger levels every 15 minutes, for the next two hours.
