Many studies are examining how a protein at breakfast affects eating behavior. Some of them have shown that high-protein breakfasts reduce hunger and help people eat up to 135 fewer calories later in the day.

In fact, MRI scans have shown that eating a protein-rich breakfast reduces the signals in the brain that control food motivation and reward-driven behavior.

Protein also helps you feel full. This is because it activates the body’s signals that curb appetite, which reduces cravings and overeating.

This is mostly due to a drop in the hunger hormone ghrelin and a rise in the fullness hormones peptide YY, GLP-1 and cholecystokinin.

Several studies have now demonstrated that eating a high-protein breakfast changes these hormones throughout the day.

BOTTOM LINE:

High-protein breakfasts reduce calorie intake later in the day. They improve the levels of your appetite-regulating hormones, leading to reduced hunger and cravings.
