Why is protein more filling?


Obviously it’s slower to digest but why is protein more immediately filing than carbs?

In: Biology

What’s your basis for this statement? I think you may need to consider the quantity you are consuming. Most meals have double if not triple the amount of carbs compared to protein.

Have you ever directly compared pure protein to carbs?

3 oz of rice will have same carbs as a generic protein shake. I would say they are equally filling. 3 oz of rice is small

In short, when you eat protein peptides signal the brain to release glucose which suppresses your appetite.
