I've noticed that when I eat high protein breakfasts, I eat better for the rest of the day and rarely get hungry between meals.
If I eat processed carbs (cereal, muffins, etc), not only am I hungry again in a couple hours, but it starts a cycle of grazing on bad carbs and sugar which can last all day and result in too many calories consumed. Instead: have an apple and scramble an egg w/ cottage cheese.
I've noticed that if I eat a high protein breakfast then I am full all morning without any hunger pangs! At least 15g of protein in my breakfast helps me feel satisfied for longer than a lower protein breakfast. Don't skimp on your carbs though, my whole grain bread has 5g of protein in one slice.
Foods I eat to get my breakfast protein include eggs, turkey bacon, whole grain bread, and cheese.
