Some people seem to prefer a protein shake for breakfast. I prefer solid foods, like a combination of meat and some type of nuts. One reason is that solid food is better for appetite control.
In a study published in the July 2011 issue of the British Journal of Nutrition, researchers examined the effects of a protein-rich beverage vs. a protein-rich solid meal, both containing 38 percent of energy from protein. Two groups of teens got either the drink or the whole-food breakfast; four hours later both groups were given an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. The teens who received the protein drink ended up consuming 33 percent more calories at lunch than those who ate solid food for breakfast.
