high protein breakfast for weight lossHow many times have you heard the comment that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day?”   The University of Missouri recently published a study to actually show that – YES – a high protein breakfast definitely plays a role in weight management. Over a 12 week period, the research team had two groups of overweight teens who typically skipped breakfast, eat either a normal protein breakfast or a high protein breakfast. (A third control group did not eat any breakfast).

What do you think were the results? The group who ate the high protein breakfast actually reduced their daily food intake by 400 calories, lost body fat mass and had more stable blood glucose levels than the other groups. The group who ate a normal protein breakfast or completely skipped breakfast gained weight and were more prone to snacking and getting blood sugar spikes.
