I know this cool one, but its mostly for drinks and such.
Ice, it fills me up for hours. Just blend with some water, and drink up.

try this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xanthan_gum

just a little touch in your protein shake or even salad dressing makes a huge difference..you can buy the gum wherever baking goods are sold

thanks for the replies. I have heard of xantham gum, but is there a calorie free thickener? Are the other gums pretty much the same?
