"Typically carbohydrate is 100 percent converted to sugar within an hour in the body, causing your blood glucose to spike and then crash quickly, leading to increased hunger," Murray told HealthPop in an email. "The addition of protein-enriched foods slows this process down, reduces the feeling of hunger, which in turn can help individuals from snacking in response to sugar crashes."
Smith says, "I definitely wouldn't recommend to my patients to start eating dessert to breakfast."
