Starting a new diet plan always includes appetite control. You simply cannot eat whatever you want, anytime you want, in any quantity you want. Appetite control is also one of the most difficult parts of starting a new diet.
And for the record, we’re not talking about those silly and unhealthy ultra-restrictive diets. Those only result in weight gain rebounds and a boatload of misery.
‘Diet’ is defined as a dietary switch in some aspect of your nutrition with the goal of fat loss and improving your health. Any time you change what you eat, your appetite will be your biggest enemy.
Here are some good examples:
You want to eat less on the days that you’re not that active. Some days you’re stuck at work and exercising just isn’t an option. Your appetite can get in the way of helping you achieve your goals. Or you want to avoid over eating at the next big family event. You know what I mean… you eat so much that you feel incredibly uncomfortable afterwards for hours.
There are foods that can help you eat less or avoid eating something that really isn’t conducive to your healthy eating plans.
One of these is whey protein.
Yep… that stuff you always hear body building and fitness magazines and ads talking about.
In several research studies, whey has been compared to other protein sources as well as against carbohydrates and fiber. This is noteworthy because whey has been shown to decrease food intake and improve appetite control for one to four hours.
In other words, you’ll be less tempted to over eat until if you drink whey protein before a meal.
A recent study from the Netherlands revealed that whey, at even small doses, decreases appetite compared to other proteins. But when proteins are taken at high doses, they all prevented overeating.
The conclusion: If you just want a low calorie intake of protein before a big meal, your best choice is whey protein above soy and the others. Calorie for calorie (and protein gram for protein gram), whey protein does the best job at helping you feel more satisfied and full.
Also: Whey in either a solid (powder) or liquid form was found to be superior to sugar in either solid or liquid form for reducing food intake and improving appetite control.
So if you’re looking to control your appetite, choose whey protein over other proteins and especially over sugars.
But never forget that this is to be part of healthy and not starvation eating plans. Starvation diets only result in bad outcomes… even if they initially make you lose weight.
