Study Will Explore Reasons Why Protein Makes People Feel Fuller Faster

August 13, 2010: 09:09 PM EST
Scientists in Scotland are trying to determine why certain protein-rich foods tend to make people feel more satiated faster. They hope to use the knowledge they gain to develop a high-protein dietary supplement that would battle obesity by making people feel full without gorging themselves. The idea would be take the supplement before eating so they are more likely to eat smaller amounts. High-protein foods like meat and cheese leave diners feeling more full even though they may consume fewer calories. But no one is sure exactly why, or which proteins work best. The researchers say they will try to determine which signals the proteins trigger, telling the brain that dinner is over.
