Skim Off The Weight


Instead of fruit juice, reach for moo juice in the morning. Drinking milk at breakfast can help you eat less at lunch, Australian scientists say. In their study, overweight people who downed about 2½ cups of skim milk in the morning consumed 8.5% fewer calories at an all-you-can-eat lunch spread than people who drank the same amount of fruit juice. Both beverages had an equal number of calories, but the milk contained 25 grammes of protein while the fruit juice had virtually no protein and 63 grammes of sugar. Those may be big servings, but the principle remains: Protein helps you feel fuller throughout the morning.
