Rise and shine! It’s breakfast time.
Eating a protein-rich breakfast may help you eat less for the rest of the day. There’s evidence suggesting that   protein, compared to carbs or fat, may curb your appetite and control your food intake throughout the day.
That’s the reason why these days people are considering a high-protein breakfast for weight loss.

A high protein breakfast is beneficial in a variety of ways including supporting muscle growth and helping you to lose weight. Research has shown that a high-protein breakfast can have many health benefits and also make you feel fuller for longer. You may think this is because of the low glycaemic index of proteins but it is actually due to the effect on ghrelin and cholecystokinin which are satiety hormones.
Also, it has been seen that; eating a high-protein breakfast may also help stall hunger impulses for up to 4 hours, according to researchers.

How protein-rich food helps to lose weight?
Protein is a macronutrient - it’s tasty, filling, and has the highest thermic effect; meaning the body uses more calories to metabolize protein, compared to fat or carbs.
By eating protein instead of carbs, you’ll find that you’ll feel full longer, have more energy, and when the craving for sweets and other junk foods hits you, you won’t be tempted.
