The Importance of a High Protein Breakfast

Skipping breakfast is strongly linked to obesity

Obviously, it wouldn’t surprise you to learn that eating breakfast is shown to reduce daily hunger. When low protein breakfasts are compared to high protein, the results show that eating a high protein breakfast has a lot of added benefits.

  • Reduction in hormones that cause hunger (Ghrelin and Peptide YY)
  • Reduced evening snacking
  • Increased satisfaction with meals
  • Better food choices through the day

Skipping meals can be considered restrictive or disordered eating and can cause you to be much more likely to overeat or binge later in the day. 

A lot of this has to do with the hormones that are triggered by skipping and restricting meals. You can read all about bingeing and restricting in my comprehensive article.

If you do eat breakfast but are often missing the protein element, it is important to note that a high protein breakfast can help tame overeating and help you to make better quality food choices for the rest of your day.
