Soya Sausage To Get Enough Of Bacon And Fried Sausage!

By Staff

Always worried that you cannot get enough of fried sausage and bacon, and giant plates of steak during a healthy diet? Here is an alternative for you-Soya sausage! Besides being sumptuous, the revolutionary food item makes a person feel full.

People in the diet often feel too hungry. However, if they eat high-protein foods then they do not get as hungry. The exact reason is not known, but it is thought a protein triggers particular signals from the gut to the brain that it is full.

The good news is that the weight lost on a high-protein diet is fat instead of muscle or water.

Vegetable-based proteins such as soya may work as well as dairy and meat. If successful it could result in a high-protein weight loss plan diet that is healthier and more environmentally-friendly.

One of the main reasons why people fail to lose weight is because of hunger. Therefore, how can we design diets in order to achieve that will be a great success! The diet is not low carb, but contains moderate amounts of carbohydrate at each meal such as rice, bread or pasta as well as meat and dairy substitutes such as soya meatballs or bacon and soya milk, margarine, bread and yoghurts.

Dr Alex Johnstone, from the Rowett's Metabolic Health Group, is conducting studies regarding the topic. Researchers at the Rowett Institute, Aberdeen found out the healthy alternative of soya sausage. The study subjects are currently on a diet made up of around 30 per cent protein.
