 Milk proteins reduce appetite, food intake and blood sugar responses to a high-carbohydrate meal. A University of Toronto study found that consuming whey protein before a meal decreased food intake, and reduced post-meal blood sugar and insulin release. Researchers fed people 10 to 40 grams of whey protein 30 minutes before an all-you-can eat pizza lunch. Whey protein decreased food intake, and its effects depended on whey intake— the more whey protein consumed, the less food they ate. Whey protein supplements improve blood sugar control and reduce appetite, and might be an effective supplement for promoting weight loss. (American Journal Clinical Nutrition, 91: 966-75, 2010)
