As we all know the proverb "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper" and the same thing repeated by our elder people to advice us about health. Because of our hectic life we never mind this actually. But we all weeps..."i'm Putting on weight"!!!
For give us a good news new study claimed people who eat breakfast burn more calories and have tighter blood sugar control. Study held at the University of Bath's Department of Health and appeared in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined the effects of eating breakfast daily versus skipping it on a person's energy balance.
study took six week to complete and was conducted by splitting a bunch of people in two groups. One group consisted of those who ate breakfast and the other of those who usually skipped it. The group that skipped breakfast went on an empty stomach till 12PM each day and the other group consumed 700 calories before 11AM. Moreover, Breakfast consumed group were found more likely to expend more energy, 442 calories approximately, by being active after eating in the morning.
"Our main finding is that people who eat breakfast burn more calories. Most people would think this is because of reduced snacking and increased metabolic rate but it's actually because people start to move around more once they've eaten in the morning. Which allows them to burn more calories." said the principal investigator of the study James Betts.
As the day went on, those who ate breakfast experienced better blood sugar control compared to those who stay with empty stomach.
However, the study shows a great reason not to miss breakfast, the most important meal of the day, especially if you are working to keep your weight down.
