Trying to lose weight? Then eat a hearty breakfast.
New research has found that over several months, obese women who ate half their daily calories first thing fared better with long term weight loss than those eating a much smaller amount. They also found that having a small breakfast could actually boost food cravings. How so? Well, the belief is that when we don't eat enough at breakfast we're more likely to get hungry and snack on foods that are high in fat and sugar throughout the day.
I believe I am living proof of this theory. If I don't have a breakfast, or if I have a particularly small breakfast, I find myself to be starving by 10 a.m. While it is difficult at times, I try to make breakfast my biggest meal of the day.
What about you? Do you snack more, or go overboard at lunch, if you skip breakfast?
