View the Fat-Fighting Foods Slideshow

(HealthDay News) -- Counter to some legendary beliefs, a vegetarian meal doesn't have to leave you hungry and unsatisfied.

Veggie-based foods that can help you feel full, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, include:

  • Lean, low-fat proteins, such as beans.
  • Veggie pizza or pasta with veggies, vegetable lo mein or lasagna, bean burritos or tofu stir-fry.
  • Soy or veggie sausages, burgers and hot dogs.
