Why sugary drinks and protein-rich meals don't go well together?

Why sugary drinks and protein-rich meals don

The researchers were surprised by the impact that the sugar-sweetened drinks had on metabolism when they were paired with higher-protein meals. This combination also increased study subjects' desire to eat savoury and salty foods for four hours after eating.

Findings Showed:

  • Consuming a sugar-sweetened drink like fruit juices with a high-protein meal including lean meat, chicken.
  • In addition, fish and dairy products may negatively affect energy balance, alter food preferences.
  • Furthermore, cause the body to store more fat, according to a study.
  • The findings showed that the inclusion of a sugar-sweetened drink decreased fat oxidation.
  • Which kick-starts the breakdown of fat molecules, after a meal by eight per cent.
  • The combination will also increase the desire to eat more unhealthy junk food for hours after finishing breakfast.

  • In addition, that the sugar-sweetened drinks had on metabolism when they were paired with higher-protein meals.
  • This combination also increased study subjects’ desire to eat savoury and salty foods for four hours after eating.
  • Paper published in the journal BMC Nutrition.
  • The researchers said,in the paper.
  • If a sugar-sweetened drink was consumed with a 15 per cent protein meal.
  • Fat oxidation decreased by 7.2g on average, while with an intake of 30 per cent protein meal fat oxidation reduced by 12.6g on average.
  • While having a sugar-sweetened drink increased the amount of energy used to metabolise the meal.
  • In addition, the increased expenditure did not even out the consumption of additional calories from the drink.
  • Casperson said, we found that about a third of the additional calories provided by the sugar-sweetened drinks were not expended.
  • In addition, fat metabolism was reduced, and it took less energy to metabolise the meals.
  • Also,this decreased metabolic efficiency may ‘prime’ the body to store more fat.
  • For the study, the team recruited 27 healthy-weight adults (13 males, 14 females), who were on average 23-years-old.
  • “The results provide further insight into the potential role of sugar-sweetened drinks in weight gain and obesity,” Casperson said.
