For decades, health authorities and nutritionists have insisted that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and skipping it had serious consequences, including an increase in overweight. Some studies have already shown that this statement was probably exaggerated, but a new study published by the British Medical Journal (The BMJ) now guarantees that, however, the opposite has been said there is no evidence that breakfast helps you lose weight,
British edition eliminate current conviction that breakfast helps you lose weight, and does this by asking about the quality of the studies on which they are based. The BMJ emphasizes the lack of firmness and warns of the importance of careful interpretation of the results, as they are conclusions based on observation and, perhaps, biased due to a healthy lifestyle and adequate food choices.
Breakfast and weight loss are not related.
According to the BMJ no hard evidence support the idea that breakfast helps to lose weight altogether, because there is no idea that skipping breakfast leads to weight gain. In fact, he argues that those who eat breakfast consume more calories during the day, and that skipping breakfast does not cause more appetite at the end of the day.
The findings of the BMJ are based on an analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials conducted at Monash University in Melbourne, mainly in the United States and the United Kingdom, for the last 28 years, and based on the data obtained. Guinea pigs? “Breakfast” is usual and not usual, with different body weight, controlled between 24 hours and 16 weeks.
Several of these tests were aimed at creating the link between breakfast — without breakfast and changes in body weightwhile others have analyzed breakfast effect on daily energy intakeContrary to what we believed in, the results showed that:
Those who missed breakfast they weighed 440 grams less than average those who had breakfast regularly, there is no difference between people with normal weight and those who were overweight.
Those who ate breakfast regularly swallowed. 260 more calories on average dailyThat those who did not eat breakfast, regardless of the habit of having breakfast first.
The skip breakfast was not connected with people they felt more hungry in the afternoon, with no difference in calorie consumption.
metabolic rate between those who usually had breakfast and those who barely showed differences.
BMJ study Remove the argument that breakfast can help you lose weight because it stops us from overeating for the rest of the day. It seems that this is not a good strategy, and it does not help us lose weight. However, he warns, again and this time with his own work, that the results should be interpreted with caution.
For many years, breakfast was considered the most important meal of the day, but there is no evidence of this. Emerging investigations tell us that breakfast is just another meal – although a daily breakfast can have important consequences for children, such as an increase in concentration and attention level – and skipping it has no consequences than skipping any food. But I, nevertheless, am going to make tea.
