Weight Loss tip: Wake up to protein-filled breakfast
Los Angeles: Eating a protein-filled breakfast is an answer for those who wants to lose weight instantly, according to new research.
A new study reveals that a meal high in protein instead of carbohydrates or fibre for breakfast could help stave off hunger pangs later in the day.
Eating eggs, sausages or bacon for breakfast could therefore helps in eating less during the day, reports agencies.
The experiment, conducted at the University of Missouri on a group of 18-55 year-old women, showed that a high-protein breakfast keeps them full than a meal with less protein but the same amount of fat and fibre.
The team, led by research scientist Kevin Maki, found eating between around 35 grams of protein for breakfast – the equivalent to a four-egg omelette or two sausages and a rasher of bacon – helped regulate appetite.
“Eating a breakfast rich in protein significantly improves appetite control and may help women to avoid overeating later in the day,” he said.
