When you eat makes a big difference. Scientist gave one study group a diet that is more calorie dense earlier in the day: 700 calories for breakfast, 500 for lunch, and 200 for dinner. They gave another group a dinner heavy diet: 200 calories for breakfast, 500 for lunch, and 700 for dinner. After just 12 weeks, those on the “breakfast diet” lost 18 pounds while those on the “dinner diet” lost 8 pounds. By the way, these are all people who need to lose weight and have health concerns.
In addition, the breakfast diet group had more dramatic decrease in triglycerides, higher increase in HDL (“good”) cholesterol, and reported less hunger throughout the day.
So….when you eat is truly important along with what you eat and yes, how you eat too? Curious? Schedule an appointment with me and let’s assess if what, when, how much, and how you eat is affecting your inability to lose weight. www.HappyFoodHealth.com.
