Abstract

With the ever-increasing obesity problem comes the search for effective dietary strategies to either prevent weight gain, promote weight loss, or to maintain a lower body weight. High-protein diets seem to provide a tool to promote appetite control and hence body weight control. Dietary strategies that can help reduce hunger and promote fullness are beneficial, since these are limiting factors for success. It is still not clear exactly the amount (g or %), type of protein (vegetable, diary or animal) that is required to promote satiety, thus these mechanisms will be a focus for future research.
