Why is it important to eat protein in breakfast?


The never-ending hunger that makes us eat so many times a day is triggered by a type of hormone called the “Hunger hormones”. The hormones, “Leptin” and “Ghrelin” are the ones believed to signal hunger. While Ghrelin triggers hunger, “Leptin” suppresses it. Carbohydrates are being the most effective nutrient to suppress “Ghrelin” as it leads to rapid absorption, but it is not very effective for suppressing it for a longer period. The prolonged suppression of Ghrelin can be induced by protein intake which is also the case for meals rich in fibres. The insoluble fibres can suppress Ghrelin and hence you don’t get the urge to eat something for a longer period.
