In a recent study 21 men ate two different breakfasts on separate days. Day 1 consisted of a protein-dominant breakfast of scrambled eggs and white toast. Day 2 consisted of a carbohydrate-rich breakfast of a plain bagel, low-fat cream cheese and low-fat yoghurt.
Both breakfasts contained exactly the same number of kilojoules.
The study revealed the protein dominant egg-based breakfast benefited their hunger levels throughout the day. All men consumed roughly 450 fewer kilojoules (108 calories) at a buffet lunch, three hours later when buy pain pills online without prescription they ate the protein breakfast compared to when they had the bagel-based breakfast.
Further more, over the following 24 hours following the protein dominant breakfast, the volunteers ate approximately 1670 fewer kilojoules (400 calories). This was a reduction of 18% fewer calories consumed.
This was supported by blood tests that revealed levels of the “hunger” hormone ghrelin were significantly higher after the bagel breakfast.
