Get up and eat a high-protein vegetarian breakfast!

Research suggests 30+ grams of protein at breakfast will make you less hungry throughout the day. This is because there are favorable changes in the hormones and brain signals that control appetite.

The problem is, many of us skip breakfast because of our busy schedules. While others feel like it’s an easy meal to skip in effort to cut down on total calories for the day.

Counterintuitively, skipping breakfast is strongly correlated with weight gain.
