Your morning meal may not contain enough protein
According to interesting research published in the International Journal of Obesity, participants who ate a high-protein breakfast ate 26 percent fewer calories at lunch than those who ate a calorically identical meal with less protein. The nutrient helps your gut release peptide YY, a hormone that nudges your brain to realize, “Hey, I’m full.” The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of protein for women over age 19 is 46 grams; for men, it’s 56 grams. This is what happens when you don’t get enough protein.
