Fun facts about protein and dieting:
Did you know that protein helps satisfy hunger? Here are some reasons why:
- Protein modulates the activity of MU-opioid receptors (MORs) - same as morphine – and that this signal goes to brain to tell the intestines to release glucose then the glucose suppresses appetite
- Protein satiety mechanisms: 1) Amino Acid circulation; 2) postprandial thermogenesis; 3) intestinal gluconeogenesis
- Thermic effect of protein is the greatest of all macronutrients (more so than carbohydrates and fats)
All other things equal on a diet:
Body weight loss with normal protein, moderate energy restricted diet is 60-75% fat, whereas on a high protein, moderate energy restricted diet, body weight loss can approach 90-100% fat!
