High Protein Diets Prevent Hunger

Posted on January 27, 2010

A review of literature written by researchers from Maastricht University in the Netherlands concluded that high protein meals or diets deriving 20-30% of energy from protein suppressed hunger and promoted the feeling of fullness.  Casein and soy protein prevent hunger better than other forms.  Protein was particularly effective for weight maintenance when people were allowed to eat as much high protein food as they wanted.  High dietary protein intake helps maintain muscle mass while promoting fat loss.

Take a look at my earlier blog post where we take a look into the different types of protein and how to choose the best types for your fitness goals.
