Protein Vs Carbs: Which One Is The Best Breakfast Option For Weight Loss And Better Concentration?

A high-protein breakfast can help promote satiety

Breakfast is an important meal that you should not skip. A healthy, wholesome breakfast helps you start the day with optimal energy. However, not many know what they should be eating for breakfast. Those trying to lose weight often opt for a high-protein breakfast. On the other hand, it is often recommended that your breakfast must include good carbs for sustained energy. So, is protein a better breakfast option than carbs or vice versa? Recently, a study revealed the winner and explained how one of these can help with weight loss and improve concentration. Keep reading to know the details.

Protein or carbs: Know the best breakfast option



A study published in the Journal of Dairy Science studies the impact of high-protein, high-carb or no breakfast on satiety, concentration and energy levels.

According to the findings of the study, a protein-rich breakfast increases satiety and concentration. However, it does not decrease overall calorie intake when compared to a carb-rich breakfast or no breakfast.



"We found that a protein-rich breakfast with skyr (a sour milk product) and oats increased satiety and concentration in the participants, but it did not reduce the overall energy intake compared to skipping breakfast or eating a carbohydrate-rich breakfast," said Mette Hansen, associate professor and PhD at the Department of Public Health, and one of the authors of the study.

The study concluded that a protein-rich breakfast can help promote satiety, preventing weight gain. However, it alone cannot help you lose weight. Other weight loss strategies along with a high-protein breakfast can help achieve effective results. Additionally, a protein-rich breakfast can help improve concentration as per the findings.

High-protein breakfast options

Eggs, yogurts, nuts and seeds, cottage cheese, quinoa, avocado toast, chia pudding, protein shake or smoothie and peanut butter are some high-protein breakfast options you must try.
