Most of you have heard by now that protein increases feelings of fullness. This is due to a number of small, insular studies. However, this premise had never been tested on a larger, more diverse set of populations. Researchers decided to combine all the information from the previous studies to try and conclusively prove this effect. Their positive results were published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
After they compared all available data, the scientists were able to conclude that a high-protein diet improves feelings of satiety when compared to a low-protein diet. Furthermore, a modest uptick in protein uptake may allow folks to feel fuller between meals. This, of course, can aid with weight loss.

“Though this study did not specifically evaluate dieters, feeling fuller could help to reduce food intake, an important factor when dieting,” concluded Dr. Mattes. “If these effects are sustained over the long-term – and our study only looked at short-term effects – increased protein intake may aid in the loss or maintenance of body weight.”
