Satiety / energy balance

Comparison of the satiating properties of egg- versus cereal grain-based breakfasts for appetite and energy intake control in children

Background

Few studies exist that have systematically examined the role of protein, and egg protein in particular, in appetite and energy intake regulation in children.

Objective

The aim of this study was to compare the effects of three different types of breakfast on appetite and energy intake at subsequent meals in children.

A randomized, controlled, crossover trial to assess the acute appetitive and metabolic effects of sausage and egg-based convenience breakfast meals in overweight premenopausal women

Background

Dietary protein at breakfast has been shown to enhance satiety and reduce subsequent energy intake more so than carbohydrate or fat. However, relatively few studies have assessed substitution of protein for carbohydrate on indicators of appetite and glucose homeostasis simultaneously.

A High-Protein Breakfast Prevents Body Fat Gain, Through Reductions in Daily Intake and Hunger, in “Breakfast Skipping” Adolescents

Objective:

The purpose of this study was to examine whether the daily consumption of normal-protein (NP) vs. high-protein (HP) breakfast meals improves appetite control, food intake, and body composition in “breakfast skipping” young people with overweight/obesity.

Get stuffed: Super-filling food satisfies your hunger for longer

THE steaming plate of fish balls in tomato sauce looks and smells appetising enough, but I hesitate to tuck in, and not just because it's 10 in the morning. These processed balls are no ordinary food: they could represent the future of the weight loss industry.

Think of diet food and what usually springs to mind is tiny portions of insubstantial fare. Not so for a range of foods designed to work by being more filling than usual – meaning that, in theory, you should eat less.

Choice of protein- and carbohydrate-rich foods may have big effects on long-term weight gain

Background

Dietary guidelines recommend interchanging protein foods (e.g., chicken for red meat), but they may be exchanged for carbohydrate-rich foods varying in quality [glycemic load (GL)]. Whether such exchanges occur and how they influence long-term weight gain are not established.

Objective

Our objective was to determine how changes in intake of protein foods, GL, and their interrelationship influence long-term weight gain.

Beneficial effects of a higher-protein breakfast on the appetitive, hormonal, and neural signals controlling energy intake regulation in overweight/obese, "breakfast-skipping," late-adolescent girls.

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Breakfast skipping is a common dietary habit practiced among adolescents and is strongly associated with obesity.

OBJECTIVE:

The objective was to examine whether a high-protein (HP) compared with a normal-protein (NP) breakfast leads to daily improvements in appetite, satiety, food motivation and reward, and evening snacking in overweight or obese breakfast-skipping girls.
