New research presented at the Obesity Society’s annual meeting found that women who ate a protein-packed breakfast (30 grams from eggs and sausage) felt more satisfied and ate about 100 calories less at lunch compared to those who ate a low-protein pancake breakfast. A high-protein morning meal also quelled evening snacking (by about 135 calories) in a small study of teenagers. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/how_a_high_protein_breakfast_can_help_you_lose_weight#comments Diet Blog Breakfast Christopher Mohr, Ph.D., R.D.
