An early morning hit of aminos can set you on the path to fat loss for the whole day, says new research from the University of Missouri-Columbia. University scientists compared the benefits of consuming a low-protein breakfast (13 grams) to a high-protein breakfast (35 grams) and found that the high-protein breakfast prevented body-fat gains, reduced feelings of hunger, and prompted the subjects to voluntarily consume less food throughout the day. The researchers theorize that the protein helps stabilize glucose, which leads to steady energy levels and a more controllable appetite. The subjects who ate less protein, or who skipped breakfast, experienced swings in glucose levels that are associated with weight gain and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
