Soya curbs appetite

A new study reveals that eating soya foods may suppress your appetite. Researchers from the Human Appetite Research Unit at the University of Leeds found that people who ate a soya-based breakfast and lunch ate an average of 172 kilocalories less at dinner than the non-soya group. Typically, the group included soya milk, soya yogurt, soya mince and soya desert in their daily diet. These findings indicate that soya foods may have an important role in weight control and the fight against obesity.
