Richard Mattes, who is a leading author and professor at Purdue University in Indiana, US, states that “Though this study did not specifically evaluate dieters, feeling fuller could help to reduce food intake, an important factor when dieting,”

Mattes further cited that “If these effects are sustained over the long-term — and our study only looked at short-term effects — increased protein intake may aid in the loss or maintenance of body weight,”

Elevated protein foods involve eggs, meat, fish, tofu, beans, lentils, yogurt, and nuts, amid numerous other food items.

Mattes states that “A good deal of evidence suggests that protein activates satiety hormone release and so should be most strongly tied with fullness ratings,”

Mattes indicates that “But individual studies are often conducted in small populations or with different approaches that can make interpretation of results challenging. Our study combined multiple experiments to confirm the presence of an effect,”

With the affirmation that protein consumption is connected to satiety, distinct as fullness amid meals, slightly elevated protein consumption can permit individuals to feel fuller amid meals.

However, as protein can assist dieters feel fuller, it is like a magic bullet, the researchers states.

Mattes clarifies that “Feelings like hunger and fullness are not the only factors that influence intake. We often eat for other reasons. Anyone who has ever felt too full to finish their meal but has room for dessert knows this all too well,”

Heather Leidy, who is an assistant professor at University of Missouri, tells that “The exact amount of protein needed to prolong fullness as well as when to consume protein throughout the day is not resolved, and our study did not determine this,”

Whereas the researchers persuade the civic to avoid intake protein to the point of overload, the study recommends that people gazing to modest their energy consumption by elevating the feeling of fullness can believe a reasonable increase in protein intake as an initial step.
