According to her study published in the International Journal of Obesity with Professor Dr. Omar Obeid and Dr. Sani Hlais, phosphorus commonly found in dairy products, seafood, and beans, could control food intake during the next meal.

Dimashkieh tested phosphorus to appetite by giving a pool of 40 people between the ages of 18 and 35 phosphorus load drinks. She then tested how much this pool ate from standardized pizza, using a visual analog scale to determine their hunger and appetite according to how much phosphorus they had. It was found that increased phosphorus content in the drinks resulted in decreased food intake during the next meal.

Dimashkieh said, "Phosphorus to appetite has only been tested in labs before. This is first time we were able to prove that phosphorus is directly linked to appetite and food intake in humans. Anybody can track it themselves; notice how much you ate during lunch on a day you had a labnah sandwich for breakfast versus the day you had a zaatar sandwich. Due to the phosphorus content in the labnah, you will end up eating less for lunch."
