New research published in this month’s Obesity found that including protein in three daily meals could reduce late-night desires to eat, increase feelings of fullness, and decrease distracting thoughts about food. Study lead Dr. Heather Leidy, Assistant Professor in the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology at the University of Missouri, shares the results with Phil.

While it may seem odd at first to find vegetables in vending machines, the country is about to see this new trend. This food revolution comes as a result of the vending machine make-over by a San Diego-based company that has franchises stretching from one end of the country to the other. Jolly Backer, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending, joins Phil with the details.
