Michael Mosley: Eat protein food every morning to ‘reduce your hunger’


Controlling food cravings is a big part of weight loss issues a lot of people experiences, as they end up snacking. But Dr Michael Mosley has shared one key tip to stay fuller for longer without the need for a stick diet.

He suggested people increase their protein intake early on during the day as it appears helps to stay fuller for longer, helping weight-loss and reducing cravings.

Dr Mosley said: “Protein can help you stay full up and studies show it reduces your hunger hormone.

“It also boosts the level of a hormone known as peptide which makes you feel full.”

By including higher levels of protein into their diets, people will see a boost in their metabolism while reducing their appetite.

“Eating protein at the first meal of the day helps you feel fuller for longer because after a protein meal, levels of a chemical called tyrosine rise inside the brain,” Dr Mosley continued.

“By increasing its own dopamine supply as the next meal approaches, the brain experiences a much weaker dopamine hit from high calorie food.”

High carbohydrate breakfasts should be avoided, as the insulin spikes these cause can increase food cravings later in the day.
