Wanna reduce overeating? Eat a protein-rich breakfast
Eating a healthy breakfast, especially one high in protein, increases satiety and reduces hunger throughout the day, a University of Missouri researcher has found.
In addition, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) the researchers found that eating a protein-rich breakfast reduces the brain signals controlling food motivation and reward-driven eating behaviour.
Eating healthy, protein-rich breakfasts, such as waffles made with protein powder, can be a simple strategy for improving appetite control and preventing overeating.
