Eat protein for breakfast to control appetiteWomen who ate high-protein meals reported feeling more satiated, study finds.
Science has confirmed what dietitians have been suggesting for weight management for years: have your toast (or bagel or pancakes) with a side of eggs or yogurt. The protein will help curb your appetite.
Researchers at the University of Missouri's Department of Exercise Physiology, in conjunction with the food science company Merieux NutriSciences, found that women who ate a protein-rich breakfast reported feeling fuller and more satiated in the hours between breakfast and lunch than those who consumed mostly carbohydrates or ate no breakfast.
All of the breakfasts served in the study were 300 calories and contained similar quantities of fiber and fat. The high-protein breakfast -- eggs and sausage -- had 30 to 39 grams of protein. The low-protein breakfast was pancakes with syrup, which has about 8 grams of protein.
Study subjects who ate the high-protein breakfast also consumed fewer calories at lunch, compared with the low-protein and no-breakfast groups.
The research was presented yesterday at the Obesity Society's annual conference and comes on the heels of a study published earlier this year that found that women who reported eating protein had lost weight.
