I find that fiber, and fat/protein tend to take longer to digest, and keep me fuller.
As far as I know, when you eat food that is rapidly digested, your blood sugar spikes, and Insulin is released, dropping your blood sugar, and when it gets down to 70-80, you feel hungry again.
If I were to guess, if the food gets rapidly converted to glucose, it would spike your blood sugar more quickly, and cause a larger release of Insulin, which would cause your blood sugar to drop quickly also, which is why you are hungry 2 hours later.
I am sure it is a bit more complicated, but you want to eat food that takes longer to digest, and keeps your blood sugars in the 90-110 range.
