Protein helps keep your body full throughout the day and can decrease the desire to overeat.
For example, eating a high protein breakfast has been shown to reduce hunger and snacking later in the day
Choosing a protein-rich breakfast like eggs tends to lower levels of ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates hunger
Adding higher protein snacks like Greek yogurt, low fat cottage cheese, peanut butter and nuts, to your routine can also help you eat less throughout the day and keep hunger under control.
