Losing weight has been the biggest concern nowadays. Due to the rapid growth in the consumption of fatty foods full of cholesterol . Another top reason behind the rapid growth of obesity is the high consumption of calories. According to the new study conducted by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, some healthy milkshakes help in weight loss. As the Person feels full between breakfast and a lunch. Resulting in a low intake of calories throughout the day.
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition conducted the study on 15 people. They gave each of them thick and thin milkshakes in varying number of calories. 15 people drank milkshakes after breakfast. According to the results of the study, People who have drunk thicker milkshakes around 100 calories felt full for a longer period. And those which have drunk thinner milkshakes after a breakfast felt empty soon.
I’m quoting the Result Statement of the study, the author said
“Our results show that increasing the viscosity is less effective than increasing the energy density in slowing gastric emptying. However, the viscosity is more important to increase the perceived fullness. These results underscore the lack of the satiating efficiency of empty calories in quickly ingested drinks such as sodas”
Following are the top healthy milkshakes helps in weight loss
1. Cake Batter Milkshakes
As the name says “cake batter” milkshakes. It means that the milkshakes should be made in the way the cake batter is made. Which obviously increases the viscosity (thickness) of the milkshakes. And as we have previously discussed the study of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Thick milkshakes help in reducing weight loss due to the fullness of the stomach and deficiency of caloric consumption in a diet. It is made with Greek yogurt full of protein.
