High Protein Breakfast Could Help Dieters

According to a new study published in the September 2008 issue of the British Journal of Nutrition, consuming high protein foods for breakfast can help sustain feelings of fullness throughout the entire day.

The study supports a growing body of research showing that eating high quality proteins can benefit dieters by creating a sense of fullness. It is the first to recognize that the timing of protein consumption can affect the dietary advantages.

Wayne W. Campbell, PhD, professor of Foods and Nutrition at Purdue University lead the study which followed nine overweight men with an average age of 48. All participants were on reduced calorie diets. The researchers tested the effect of increasing the amount of protein intake at breakfast, lunch and dinner.

By analyzing data from questionnaires filled out by participants, the researchers found that when protein was consumed during breakfast, participants experienced higher levels of fullness - for longer periods of time - than when the protein was consumed at lunch or dinner.

ÂBreakfast is touted as the most important meal of the day but many people don't have the time to prepare a high protein meal each morning. With a little planning (preparing breakfast the night before) and stocking the refrigerator with high protein foods like yogurt, cheeses and meats you may find that a high protein breakfast is that little push you need to lose those extra pounds.
