Eating Breakfast May Not Help You Shed Weight

  • There’s 'no one size fits all' approach to weight loss and eating breakfast

As a result, the researchers say caution is needed when recommending the eating of breakfast for weight loss in adults as it could have the opposite effect.

The theory that breakfast is the most important meal of the day - including for dieters - may not be true, research suggests. However, there's now even more evidence that this may not be the case.

However, "in reality, whether breakfast helps or hinders your efforts to prevent weight gain or lose weight will depend on the individual, added Murphy, who was not involved in the research".

The study's authors, from Monash University in Melbourne, analysed breakfast data collected from 13 randomised controlled trials (which are hailed as the gold standard of science - though, like breakfast, RCTs don't always live up to their reputation). Breakfast eaters also weighed, on average, nearly half a kilogram more (0.44kg) compared to non-breakfast eaters.

'On top of this, studies have shown time after time that people who skip breakfast are more likely to make less healthy choices later in the day - be it due to the feeling that they are "allowed" that treat because they've skipped a meal or because they're simply hungrier and in need of more energy.

But a new study seems to go against that.

Previous studies have suggested that eating breakfast speeds up the metabolism and can help people to stop overeating later in the day.

"Observational studies have shown that obese and diabetic people skipped meals more often than thin people", he wrote in a linked BMJ opinion article, which was republished on The Conversation.

"Although eating breakfast regularly could have other important effects, caution is needed when recommending breakfast for weight loss in adults, as it may have the opposite effect".

"We should not change diets to include breakfast eating in order to lose weight".

Several trials focused on the relationship between eating or skipping breakfast and changes in body weight, while others looked at the effect of breakfast on daily energy intake.

"We found that on average, those who ate breakfast had an increase in overall calorie intake", she told Runner's World. Eat if you're hungry and if you'e not, don't worry about it. According to Phillips, "a simple breakfast of wholegrain cereal and milk with a glass of unsweetened fruit juice and a cup of tea provides protein, fibre, a raft of vitamins and minerals and plant phytochemicals".

In fact, the research suggests that ditching breakfast completely would be better for your waistline.

Overall amounts of glucose in the blood are also lower just 14 days after adopting a three meal a day eating plan.

It's common for people on such protocols to break their fasts at lunchtime, regularly skipping breakfast and finishing their day's feeding with dinner at about 8pm.
