This Special Food Greatly Improves Meal Satisfaction

Recently I reviewed a really interesting study done on overweight women that showed a very special food could help them feel more full after eating and less hungry in subsequent meals.

I wrote this up for Prograde Nutrition, my #1 trusted nutritional supplement company.

Hi Cassandra,

Thanks for sharing this. I appreciate the research, but I have some questions regarding the rigour of the study. I'm thinking that of course, compared to women who have only water before a meal, those who take whey will have reduced hunger, and that certainly hunger will follow a typical dose-response pattern (where more whey = less hunger). However, what I'm wondering is how other beverages of the same caloric value (e.g juice) would compare to the whey. Though I'm certainly a believer in the benefits of whey, I have to play devil's advocate to ask whether or not consuming varying amounts of juice or other beverages prior to a meal would have the same effect.


(PS. Really enjoying NROLFW - thank you!)

Good comment!

This has not been the only study to show how well well improves meal satisfaction and curtails overeating.

You can read other studies here:

The problem with juice is that it increases blood sugar and insulin levels so much that it results in hypoglycemia for many people. Maybe you're not one of those people though?

Whey isn't dangerous and if you're concerned about artificial sweeteners, you can get plain whey or whey sweetened with stevia.

Make sense?

Yep, totally makes sense in reference to glycemic load. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the 2nd link in your follow-up Cassandra. It answered my question about what happens if you compared Whey to solid protein rich foods like turkey, eggs, etc. I find that result kind of surprising. Just from personal experience, whey shakes just don't cut it for me in curbing appetite but, a handful of almonds can keep me going for quite awhile.
