Protein – Mother Nature's Diet Pill

Of the three basic building blocks of nutrition– protein, carbohydrates, and fat– nothing provides longer-lasting and more effective appetite control than protein.  In fact, I like to call protein nature’s diet pill!

The unique sating power of protein is thought to be due to several mechanisms working in concert including:

  • Sustaining blood glucose levels
