This new study brings us more evidence that eating breakfast and consuming most of our calories early in the day helps us both lose/control weight and avoid diabetes.
Frank Scheer, from Brigham and Women’s Hospital (Massachusetts, USA), and colleagues evaluate the role of food timing in weight-loss effectiveness in a group of 420 individuals who followed a 20-week weight-loss treatment.
Those who ate most of their calories after 3pm lost significantly less weight and had less insulin sensitivity (insulin resistance = type II diabetes). This group consumed less calories at breakfast and were more likely to skip breakfast altogether.
