Don’t skip your early morn­ing pro­teins

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Look­ing for a healthy way to man­age your weight? In­dulge in a high-pro­tein break­fast that con­sists of healthy op­tions. Hav­ing milk, eggs, meat and yogurt daily can re­duce un­healthy weight gain among over­weight teenagers, says a new study.

The re­searchers com­pared the ben­e­fits of con­sum­ing a nor­mal-pro­tein break­fast to a high-pro­tein one in over­weight teenagers who would nor­mally skip break­fast. The high-pro­tein break­fast pre­vented body fat gain and re­duced the daily food in­take and feel­ings of hunger. The re­searchers fed two groups of over­weight teenagers who re­ported skip­ping break­fast be­tween five and seven times a week, ei­ther nor­mal-pro­tein meals or high-pro­tein meals.

The nor­mal-pro­tein meal was milk and ce­real, and con­tained 13 grams of pro­tein. The high-pro­tein meal con­tained 35 grams of pro­tein. “The teenagers who ate high-pro­tein break­fasts re­duced their daily food in­take by 400 calo­ries and lost body fat mass, while the groups who ate nor­mal-pro­tein break­fast or con­tin­ued to skip break­fast gained ad­di­tional body fat,” Leidy said.
