Can a Big Breakfast Save You From Major Disease? | Care2 Healthy Living

A recent study done by researchers at Tel Aviv University says “Yes.” And that’s not all. The study also found that eating a high calorie breakfast can protect you from more than half a dozen serious health problems.

Researchers studied 93 obese women, getting them to eat a 1,400-calorie-a-day diet for three months. The first group ate 700 calories at breakfast, 500 at lunch and 200 at dinner. The second group ate a 200-calorie breakfast, 500-calorie lunch and a 700-calorie dinner. The 700-calorie dinners and breakfasts were the same – including dessert, such as chocolate cake or cookies.

Guess which group lost more weight?

After 12 weeks, those in the first group who ate the big breakfast lost 2.5 times as much weight as the high-calorie dinner group (18 lbs. and 7 lbs respectively). More significantly, the big breakfast group also experienced a drop in insulin, glucose, and triglycerides – lowering their risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol, the study says.
