|This should raise some eyebrows, especially because skipping breakfast is the country’s hottest diet trend.
It seems like every couple of days there’s a new study that contradicts the one before it.
Should you eat breakfast or skip it? Should you load up on eggs and bacon like the Keto diet advises? Or is a low fat diet the way to go?
Eat up! A new study says enjoying a big breakfast in the morning can actually help you burn more calories throughout the day.
The new research published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism studied a group of healthy young men with a normal body mass index and found the number of calories burned was much higher when they ate a bigger breakfast and a small dinner.
Test results showed they burned more than twice as many calories than those who ate a small breakfast and a large dinner.
Scientists concluded “diet-induced thermogenesis,” the amount of energy it takes to process a meal was higher in the morning than at night.
Although the study showed more calories burned, researchers say this only accounts for about 15% of the total daily calories burned.
