High protein breakfasts are the key to staying lean and muscular say scientists (only about 20 years behind the bodybuilding world then!)

HIGH protein breakfasts such as steak and eggs helps you stay in shape and combat hunger pangs later in the day, US scientists say.

Experts at the University of Missouri have found that a breakfast rich in protein significantly improves appetite control and reduces unhealthy snacking on high-fat or high-sugar foods in the evening. 

But, predictably, six out of 10 young Americans consistently skip 'the most important meal of the day.'

Heather Leidy, assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology says a proper breakfast could hold the key to solving the American obesity crisis,

There are more than 25 million overweight or obese young adults in the US.

In her study, 20 overweight or obese adolescent females ages 18-20 either skipped breakfast, consumed a high-protein breakfast consisting of eggs and lean beef, or ate a normal-protein breakfast of ready-to-eat cereal. 

'Eating a protein-rich breakfast impacts the drive to eat later in the day, when people are more likely to consume high-fat or high-sugar snacks' Leidy said. 

The Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology is a joint effort by MU's College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources; College of Human Environmental Sciences; and School of Medicine. 

Funding for the research was provided by the Beef Check-off and the Egg Nutrition Center/American Egg Board.
