Vegetarian, meat protein provide similar appetite control, weight loss

March 3, 2015

A vegetarian-based high-protein eating plan appears to offer the same appetite control and weight loss as a meat-based plan with the same amount of protein, according to research published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

In a study of adult men with obesity, gut hormone profile was similar between the two regimens, suggesting both high-protein weight-loss (HPWL) diets could be equally effective as weight-loss interventions, according to researchers in the United Kingdom.
