A diet high in a protein found in dairy products can aid weight loss and help to manage type 2 diabetes, a new study has found.
Previous research has suggested that eating a large breakfast containing protein, a medium-sized lunch and a smaller dinner can help a person to feel satisfied throughout the day, aid weight loss, and prevent spikes in blood sugar.
However, scientists believe that the type of protein consumed at breakfast is also important.
A study by a team at Tel Aviv University found that whey, which is a by-product of cheese production and found in many dairy products, was more effective at controlling blood sugar than other sources of protein such as eggs, soy or tuna.
