Protein Rich Breakfast Helps to Curb Unhealthy Snacking

Heather Leidy, an assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, says eating a breakfast rich in protein significantly improves appetite control and reduces unhealthy snacking on high-fat or high-sugar foods in the evening.

In a limited study, the consumption of the high-protein breakfast led to increased fullness or "satiety" along with reductions in brain activity that is responsible for controlling food cravings. The high-protein breakfast also reduced evening snacking on high-fat and high-sugar foods compared to when breakfast was skipped or when a normal protein, ready-to-eat cereal breakfast was consumed.

Protein-rich breakfasts prevent unhealthy snacking in the evening, study finds

In my personal experience, we I get a protein rich breakfast, I don’t have the urge to eat a mid-morning snack. I also eat my lunch much later in the day.
