Breakfasts 'don't make you eat less'
Monday 17 January 2011
The theory that a large breakfast helps you eat less for the rest of the day is a myth, according to research. Writing in the Nutrition Journal, researchers from the University of Munich examined the eating habits of almost 400 people.
Over the course of two weeks, participants were asked to record everything they ate and drank. Some always had a big breakfast, others ate a small one and some skipped the meal altogether.
The researchers found people who ate higher calorie breakfasts did not cut down at other meals. Both big breakfast eaters and those who ate a low calorie meal consumed the same quantity of calories for lunch and dinner.
