The bad habit of snacking throughout the day is one of the main causes of obesity that is often not realized. Though there is an easy way to reduce it, ie with breakfast eggs. Its potent protein content withstands hunger.

A study at the University of Missouri re-prove that the protein intake in the breakfast menu is crucial to the success of the diet throughout the day. Protein makes the appetite more controlled so that snacking desire can be controlled.

However, the study also revealed that 60 percent of Americans often forget about it. Breakfast is often overlooked by reason of rush, or even breakfast then only with a modest menu without taking into account the protein.

Heather Leidy, the scientist who conducted the study said, obesity has now infected 25 million adults in the country. One reason is the lack of protein intake in the breakfast menu, which resulted in uncontrolled appetite throughout the day.

"Eating a protein-rich breakfast menu can affect the desire to eat throughout the day, when people are getting attracted to snacking on high-fat and high-sugar foods," Leidy said, as quoted by the Daily Mail on Monday (1/4/2013).

In his research, Leidy involved 20 girls and 18-20 year old adults who were all obese. Part of the participants were given high protein intake of foods such as eggs and bacon at breakfast, some with standard protein content.

Throughout the day, participants were asked to fill out a questionnaire to see how much the desire for snacking perceived. In addition, before dinner the participants also underwent brain scans to see the central activity of appetite regulation.

The results showed that high protein breakfasts provide a longer satiety sensation and reduce hunger. This change is also observed from the results of the scan, which indicates that the activity in the appetite setting is reduced thanks to a high protein breakfast.
