#6 – Protein Shakes Can Help You Control Your Appetite
If you don’t feel full, you want to eat, no matter how much you’ve already eaten. It’s a battle against your mind that your stomach usually wins. The right protein can be the equalizer in this war. In fact, research shows that protein can bring down the levels of Ghrelin, the hormone that stimulates the sensation of hunger. Furthermore, protein like whey contains glycomacropeptide, which stimulates Cholecystokinin. Cholecystokinin is an intestinal hormone that is released after having meal, and it gives you the sensation that you are no longer hungry.
