Eating Peanut Butter/Peanuts at Breakfast Helps Control Hunger and Blood Sugar All Day

New Study - Press Release

A new study, released in the current British Journal of Nutrition, showed that consuming peanut butter or peanuts for breakfast can control blood sugar throughout most of the day, even after eating a high carbohydrate lunch. In addition to this “Second Meal Effect”, peanuts and peanut butter caused a significant reduction in the desire to eat for up to 12 hours and a significant increase in the secretion of the hormone PYY that promotes satiety and feelings of fullness.
