Table 1 Effect of Paleolithic diet compared to Mediterranean diet on individual mean measures of satiety (group mean ± SD)

From: A paleolithic diet is more satiating per calorie than a mediterranean-like diet in individuals with ischemic heart disease

  1. Satiety estimated with rating scale used to assess subjective satiety from 4 day weighed food records started 15 ± 5 days after initiating dietary change. *P for difference between diets in a two-sided t-test with independent samples. **Excluding weight of table water. Measures of subjective satiety in Rating Scale units (RS). Satiety Quotient is the intra-meal quotient of change in satiety during meal and consumed energy or weight of food and drink for that specific meal.
