Eating Breakfast Is Not The Magical Solution To Weight Loss
Sep 11, 2013 19:38
Most weight-loss programs and diets insist that eating breakfast is the key to losing weight, but new research suggests that it isn't the case.
A report published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition claims that there aren't any studies that truly support the fact that eating breakfast helps people lose weight.
The studies conducted on the matter generally found that skipping breakfast had little to no effect on weight gain or loss, and that any associations between breakfast habits and obesity really have no direct cause and effect. So basically, people who eat breakfast are simply consuming more calories.
The research showed only that eating breakfast was a common behavior
among people who were actively trying to avoid regaining weight, just as
diet soda might be a common drink of choice among dieters but not
necessarily the cause of their weight loss.
But what if breakfast isn't the most important meal of the day? It might still be better for your body than running on empty. For more on myths relating to breakfast and weight loss, read the full post at the New York Times
