 Breakfast Skippers Should Gradually Increase Morning Protein Intake
An individual's breakfast habits play a vital role in gradually increasing the protein intake in the morning, shows a new study.

The study led by University Of Missouri-Columbia found that the metabolic responses to eating a high-protein breakfast were different from breakfast skippers than to who daily have their morning meal.

The researchers explained that the habitual breakfast skippers experienced poorer glucose control throughout the day when they consumed a high-protein breakfast, whereas those who typically ate a high-carbohydrate breakfast had improved glucose control after they ate a high-protein breakfast.

Heather Leidy, an assistant professor said that their findings reveals that sustained elevations in post-meal glucose was a strong contributor of poor glycemic control and is associated with an increased risk for the development of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular complications.

Leidy added that due to the long term potential risk, identifying dietary strategies that individuals can begin when they are young to reduce post-meal elevations in glucose might prevent the occurrence of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Leidy also mentioned that habitual breakfast skippers faces increased inability to metabolize a large quantity of protein, but once they start eating breakfast, they should gradually transit to a breakfast with more protein and will have improved glycemic control.
