The week is celebrated to bring the focus on nutrition for better health. And it's the best time to stress upon the fact how eating breakfast regularly can go a long way for a healthier life. As per health experts, a protein-packed breakfast can work wonders for our body. Not only does eating a high-protein breakfast everyday refuels our body for the rest of the day but also boosts metabolism and helps in weight loss.

Protein helps regulate the hunger hormone ghrelin, which checks your cravings.
