A simple burger or meal laden with rich protein diet has always been thought to fill our stomach. Vegetarians and weight watchers can rejoice. As researchers at University of Minnesota have proven the myth is wrong.
Whether we eat a meal containing beef or vegetarian diet filled with beans or whole grains and legumes. There is no difference among our appetite ratings. The researchers notice among their test subjects who were given two meals with matched weight, calories and total fat content, they still consumed the same amount of calories at the next meal time interval.
Their results showed the link between protein and fiber are interlinked. Protein releases the hunger hormones. Fiber slows down the digestion process and increases the feeling of fullness as it try to regulate our blood sugar levels.
