HEALTH – The Australian CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) claim in a recent report that eating more protein at breakfast every day could be conducive to weight loss.
This could include bacon and eggs for breakfast as it, without the sauce and bread, is a high-protein, low-carb meal that fits with CSIRO’s daily recommendations.
The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet’s Protein Balance program recommends redistributing your protein intake to 25g at breakfast, 25g at lunch, 40g at dinner and 10g for snacks.
“The average Australian eats much lower amounts of protein at breakfast, so increasing breakfast protein may help to control eating later in the day,” said senior principal research scientist for CSIRO and co-author of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet, Professor Manny Noakes.
“If you find it difficult to control what you eat, a redistribution of protein towards breakfast may be the answer to reducing your waistline without leaving you ravenously hungry and craving unhealthy foods,” she said.
