Eight subjects completed this study with a mean BMI of 22.18 ±2.9 kg/m2( range, 19.5-28.15),aged 22 ±1.2 year (range 21-24 year), fasting glucose concentration of high carbohydrate meal is 4.9 ±0.071 mmol ( range, 4.6-5.2 mmol) and fasting glucose concentration of high protein meal is 5.0± 0.098 mmol (range, 4.7-5.5 mmol).There is no significant differences between the two test meals in the fasting values.
Results for plasma glucose is depicted in the line graphs (individual time points) and the mean trends in plasma glucose with corresponding the AUCs for two different meals are shown in bar graphs (AUC) a in Figure 2. There was no statistically significant different in plasma glucose response between the high protein meal and the …show more content…
Many studies demonstrated the ability of the high protein meal could significantly reduce intake of energy at lunch that may depend on the increased feelings of satiety. For example, Rains et al. compared the effects of high protein breakfast to low protein breakfast in overweight premenopausal women and the result show energy intake at lunch was significantly less following the higher protein breakfast compared with low protein condition (6). Another investigation using beverages to assess the satiating effects of protein and carbohydrate rather than solid context also have shown significantly less energy intake at lunch after the protein compared to carbohydrate preload (12). Those outcomes are in contrast to the present study that showed high protein breakfast is slightly increase the energy intake at lunch compare to high carbohydrate breakfast. The difference of the present result may affect by the palatability of lunch because certain subjects mentioned the lunch is so salty or too hot that make them consume less at the lunch following the high
