Eat Early, Eat Less and Lose Weight

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:34pm

You have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When I was a growing boy, I took it to mean that my body and brain needed early morning nutrition to function properly (and that is correct). Well, researchers at The University of Texas at El Paso found a benefit of eating breakfast that weight loss seekers will like. Their study found that people who ate breakfast took in 5 percent fewer calories the rest of the day. That might not sound like much but it equates to cutting 100 calories a day from your diet (this assumes an average 2000 calorie-a-day diet). Cutting 100 calories a day for a year equates to a loss of more than 10 pounds. And, if you exercise regularly (cardio and weight training), this will lead to even more weight loss and fat loss. So, what did you say you were having for breakfast?
