High-protein diets suppress appetite in adults, however, this does not appear to be the case in children or adolescents according to a NEW study from researchers at Leeds Metropolitan University in Leeds, UK.
This is the third time they have found this.
They also note that other studies have also found that high-protein diets fail to suppress appetite in obese children. REFERENCE
