Here is an interesting article about whey protein and the purported benefits to eating a whey protein bar in the mid-morning and mid-afternoon.
According to a recent study, "if you have a small snack of whey protein combined with polydextrose, then you may have a better time managing your energy intake for the rest of the day."
"The researchers wanted to see the effects of eating a whey protein bar – at mid-morning or mid-afternoon time – and how it would affect energy intake for the rest of the day."
"They found that lean men, who consumed the whey protein bar, had lower energy intake during the 14 experimental days of the study."
"They also noticed that men who ate the whey protein mixed bar, had lower levels of ghrelin (appetite stimulating hormone), and glucose and higher levels of glucagon like peptide 1 and peptide tyrosine-tyrosine responses."
"They concluded: 'The manipulation of the composition of foods consumed as snacks is an effective way to limit subsequent energy intake.'"
So do you have a mid-morning and mid-afternoon meal? And if you do, what do you eat?
