Eat Early; Eat Less

Changing eating patterns may lead to easier weight loss

Changing eating patterns may lead to easier weight loss. Research published in the Journal of Nutrition (2004) followed participants and their eating habits for seven days. Those who ate more in the morning had less total food consumption for the rest of the day, while the others in the group generally ate more as the day went on, with less time between food consumption. This resulted in higher calories consumed and less calories burned as activity levels dropped in the evenings.

Starting the day right by having a sound breakfast has been confirmed in other research to reduce fat cravings, lower cholesterol levels, and lead to overall increase in vitamin and mineral intake. This one change may be a simple key to managing your weight.
