One of the questions I had was "why does it seem I do better with protein for breakfast?" I wasn't sure if it was just the events of the day, phase of the moon or if it was the protein. Well, I found out- New findings show that a high protein diet can help squelch hunger. Protein foods work by suppressing ghrelin, a hormone secreted by the stomach that stimulates appetite (yes, it triggers hunger!). In a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, researchers found that foods high in fat actually raised levels of ghrelin and increased hunger. Carbohydrates soon made people even hungrier than they were before they had eaten. But it was the protein foods that lowered levels of ghrelin substantially, helping to keep hunger pangs in check.
It also explains why in my younger years I would skip breakfast, because if I ate breakfast all I wanted to do was eat all day. What is the breakfast standard? Toast or cereal - we had gotten away from the bacon and eggs breakfast. And what I've observed in myself these last couple of years.
Actually I did - I didn't want to study diet plans, I don't want to count anything, I want to understand how my body works, what it needs, and how food effects it.
From looking at that, I went to white flour, then shifted to finding out about the morning protein thing. Found some interesting things about white flour, but don't have a full understanding of it yet, and don't really know what to do with it...it will be coming though.
