I realized having protein makes you feel full also. I try to pair it with snacks. Such as apples and peanut butter or cottage cheese and carrots.

Once I started getting within the protein goals I saw my weight loss increasing from .5-1lb a week to almost 2. Some of it is because it helps balance out the fats but also because it keeps me fuller longer. I also do protein shakes after lifting weights because a personal trainer told me it helps build stronger muscles and keeps the calories burning longer.
Not only does protein satisfy you but, it does not raise your insulin levels and cause cravings the way wheat and other high sugar foods do. That is a benefit, especially for women over 60 and for those with carb sensitivities.

I guess it does. But eating whole grains or complex carbs also has the same effect for me. If I eat a bowl of bulgur wheat with some berries tossed in for breakfast it has the same effect.

I read one of Spark article where it said that protein keeps your full level longer than carb or fat
Then I go to look at the trend of my food intake, the day when I eat less protein it ends up consuming more calorie than the day when the protein is quite high
