Breakfast is Not the Most Important Meal of the Day

In the previous blog that I posted, we discussed about that meal timings is not related to any weight loss or gain theory. So, why is breakfast not the most important meal of the day?

In a study conducted where 300 participants were divided into two groups. One group ate breakfast while the other did not. While there small differences, the result of the study was that breakfast had no significance to weight loss and that it doesn’t have any significance to the performance of the person for the rest of the day.

-“From a physiological perspective, there’s nothing special about eating early in the morninga and triggering weight loss.”

Breakfast is not the most important meal of the day. 

But neither is lunch, dinner, or snacks. This isn’t meant to be puzzling or a letdown to those of you trying to crack the weight loss code. Believing that one meal is the foundation of success can be detrimental to your healthy living goals.

The problem with the breakfast-is-best hypothesis is that it steers people into the “there’s only one way to eat” mentality. The truth is, it doesn’t matter when you eat your meals: Morning, night, or spread out through the day. If there are behavioral reasons why you want to eat breakfast, such as it energizes or improves focus, then those are good reasons to have an early meal.

Insisting that someone has to eat breakfast to lose weight could be the one change that actually makes it harder to experience long-lasting change. Some people aren’t morning eaters, and there’s no reason they have to change that aspect to be healthy.

If you like breakfast, eat it. If you like snacking, make that your habit. But don’t let anyone convince you that your success will depend on any one meal.

But the process can be made easier. It can be enjoyable. And most of all, it will be effective if you take the right approach.

Eat breakfast. Don’t eat breakfast. That choice is yours.

And by making that choice, and determining what’s best for you, then you’ll be on the path to change that works and lasts.
