Protein-Rich Breakfasts Curb Hunger Throughout The Morning

November 14, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A study involving women (aged 18-55) found that the type of breakfast eaten has a lot to do with whether hunger pangs are experienced sooner or later in the day. High-protein breakfasts (e.g., sausage and eggs) stave off hunger longer, the U.S. researchers found, compared to low-protein (pancakes and syrup) breakfasts or no breakfast at all. Breakfasts in the tests all had the same number of calories (about 300), but the protein breakfasts contained 30 to 39 grams of protein. Protein eaters reported lower hunger, more fullness and less desire to eat after breakfast, and ate fewer calories at lunch.
