Mushrooms can be an excellent addition to the diet especially when looking to lose weight. In place of a traditional breakfast it works better to keep you full even when compared to heavy breakfast meats. Studies have been done comparing mushrooms to meat for satiety. The mushrooms and meat were balanced for calorie content and given to two groups. Those who ate the mushrooms had a more satisfied feeling as compared with meat eaters. Starting the day with a filling mushroom blend can keep you full longer and stave off hunger.
