Meat and Nuts for Breakfast

“Scientists at the University of Missouri conducted a study on overweight teen girls who regularly skip breakfast. The teens were divided into three groups for this study: One group continued to skip breakfast, the second group switched to a typical milk-and-cereal breakfast, and the third group was given a high-protein breakfast. In this case, a high-protein breakfast meant yogurt and protein-enriched waffles with syrup – okay, so it’s not exactly the meat and nuts breakfast, but the findings are still important.

The results were important for two reasons. The first is that they corroborated previous studies by showing that the higher-protein breakfast improved both appetite control and overall satiety: The teens were less likely to consume excess calories and sugary snacks between meals and made better food choices throughout the afternoon and evening.”
