The study, which has been published in the journal Obesity, followed teenagers over a period of three weeks. The teenagers skipped the breakfast completely, ate a 500-calorie normal breakfast meals or ate protein rich breakfast such as syrup and yogurt.

The researchers asked the students to fill out a questionnaire at the end of each week as well as took out MRI brain scans before the lunch and found that those who ate protein rich breakfast had lower appetite throughout the day while the MRI scans showed activity in the brain regions that controlled food motivation to be low when the individual ate breakfast in the morning.

"These findings suggest that a protein-rich breakfast might be an effective strategy to improve appetite control and prevent overeating in young people", the researchers said.

rats miilk=20% protein...human breastmilk=1% protein.....the thing about oral fixations, thumbsucking chewing has to do with a very big clew einstein would recommend noticing... human saliva ph precludes many elements but for complex carbs whichttake forever to chew...4 millions of years of evolution in the tree canopy that was our mission.. to keep chewing...we have eveolved or have yet to evolve an evolutionary partner[s] but little protein in our breastmilk indicates a drugging aggression has been linked to protein, no one knows about sugar being just as deletrious..manufactured aspartame demonstrated that sugar comes first, and frpm that must be excreted quickly as an acid and invalidates our enormous capablility to produce saliva after 2, 3 millionyears of diet beyond plan...the end fills me with rapture, satiety, but it's the beginning that's most mean
