Most of humans, particularly women, possess a desire to acquire a shaped and slim body. The desire pushes a huge a majority of people to diet and chopping off a good amount of calories from their daily diet.
To keep the bulky looks at a distance, researchers at the University of Sydney suggest consuming protein rich diet instead of skipping meals or practicing diet without any expert assistance. Before suggesting the findings, they have carried out a research and observed that intake of diet with lower levels of protein can cause a desire for having more snacks to fulfill the energy requirement.
On the other hand, adequate supply of the proteins, which act as an essential element to human body to carry out a number of metabolic activities, plays a role to curb appetite as well as chances of excessive intake of fats and carbohydrates. "Humans have a particularly strong appetite for protein, and when the proportion of protein in the diet is low this appetite can drive excess energy intake”, commented the lead study author, Alison Gosby.
Experts have anticipated that the recent findings will help the scientists to develop medications in order to address global obesity epidemic. Obesity is a major health condition that serves as a source to cause an array of diseases.
During the research, scientists from the Cambridge University in collaboration with the University of Sydney have analyzed those individuals having 10% protein and reflected a tendency to grab around 260 more calories, every day, as compared to people eating 15% protein, in a group of 22 subjects. The experts have directed all the study participants to diet and consume only three prescribed diets with protein account of 10, 12 and 15% for at least four days.
