There are 3 ways that POCKET PROTEIN keeps YOU full throughout the day:
1) Protein increases the Peptide YY hormone
2) Protein increases the LEPTIN hormone
3) Protein slows down the digestion process while burning calories.
A *macronutrient* is a type of food required in large amounts in the human diet. We have 3 of these types: Protein, Carbs, and Fat. Of these 3 components, PROTEIN requires your body to work harder and to expend more energy, so that it can be broken down and used EVERYWHERE. This energy expenditure causes the production of heat within the body known as *thermogenesis*. This process in turn helps reduce body mass and the intake of calories.
The addition of POCKET PROTEIN to whatever carbs you are already eating increases 2 hormones: PEPTIDE YY and LEPTIN. Peptide YY is a hormone that helps to reduce appetite and limit food intake. This is initiated when protein is consumed and is absorbed into the stomach. The release of this hormone tells your brain ”I’M FULL!” At the same time, Leptin is released from the gastrointestinal tract which also sends signals to your brain, telling it “I’M FULL!” Both of these signals together make us less hungry.
When compared to carbs and fats, PROTEIN significantly delays gastric emptying, which slows down your digestion process, making you feel full for longer periods of time. This extra energy BURNS CALORIES, and POCKET PROTEIN allows you to continue this process throughout the day ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.
So why not start this fat burning process early every single day and OWN YOUR MORNINGS? A high protein breakfast combination can increase your metabolic rate by 30% for as long as 12 HOURS. This is the calorie burning equivalent of a 3 to 5 mile jog!

The key secret to staying FULL throughout the day is DONT START STARVING in the first place!
