Usual breakfast “eaters” respond to skipping a breakfast meal differently than those who usually skip breakfast.
Researchers at the University of Colorado were interested in understanding why breakfast skippers have a higher rate of type 2 diabetes and whether the expected metabolic responses would be more pronounced in overweight women who skip breakfast on a regular basis (Thomas, 2015).
As highlighted in a recent blog, higher protein breakfasts may reduce hunger in kids. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania recently confirmed these results in a study that compared the satiating properties of egg- versus two cereal grain-based breakfasts in children.
The materials in this tool kit will explore the important roles that protein serves in the body, current dietary protein recommendations, optimal protein intake recommendations for adults and how healthcare professionals can use new research to provide appropriate counsel for patients and clients.
