10. Chickpeas

Chickpeas might be lower in protein and higher in carbohydrates than most other protein foods, but they pack a fibrous punch. Chickpeas are a great source of soluble and insoluble fibre. Insoluble fibre is a great way to increase the transit time of food in your tummy, leaving you feeling flat tummied and lighter, whereas soluble fibre soaks up water and slows digestion, keeping you fuller for longer.
