A study has shown that high protein meals improve satiety, the feeling of fullness.
According to the study, higher protein intake results in greater satiety during the day along with reductions in both morning and late night appetite in comparison to a normal protein diet.
Other research has demonstrated that high protein diets that contain 18 to 35% of daily calorie intake coming from protein are linked to increased fullness and reductions in hunger the whole day as well as into the evening hours. Apples have a good satiety index.
I encourage clients and readers to make lifestyle changes that lead to better long-term health, which includes acceptable body fat and your ideal body weight. I do not recommend fad diets, quick weight loss gimmicks, starvation diets, weight loss pills, fat burner supplements and the like.
