Both Plant And Animal Protein Are Effective At Controlling Appetite

May 11, 2011: 10:33 AM EST
The source of protein in a person’s diet, whether from animals or plants, makes no difference to whether it is effective in controlling appetite or promoting weight loss, according to a review of scientific literature. Studies have shown that a diet high in protein contributes to feelings of fullness or satiety, energy burning and fat loss. Consumption of protein also helps keep weight off, the researchers noted. The review by Danish and Canadian researchers found that animal proteins, particularly dairy proteins, are superior to plant proteins for building muscle, but found no evidence indicating that the source of the protein made any difference in weight loss.
