In a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, participants skipped breakfast, ate cereal, or ate a high-protein breakfast of eggs and lean beef. Those who ate the high-protein breakfast felt more satisfied throughout the day, had less activity in areas of the brain that control food cravings, and had fewer sugary, fatty snacks in the evening. A good breakfast helps you stay thin, stay healthy and stay away from the chips.
