Eat protein; don’t drink it!

Protein is key to suppressing hunger.  I have protein powder in my morning oatmeal and 8-12 oz of fish or lean meat (generally steamed without added fat) for lunch and dinner.

A new study in the journal Obesity shows that people are satisfied longer with a SOLID protein meal compared to same same meal made in a blender.

So, I generally avoid smoothies (plus they often have added sugar).  Don’r drink your calories.  Instead, eat real food!.
