Breakfast fans gain less weight over time: Study - UPI.com

Breakfast fans gain less weight over time: Study - UPI.com | Middays with Becky in DC | Scoop.it
MONDAY, April 23, 2018 -- Starting each day with breakfast may help you keep the pounds off through the years, a preliminary study finds.
The study, of nearly 350 healthy adults, found that those who usually ate breakfast had smaller waistlines and were less likely to be obese, compared to people who usually skipped breakfast.
And over the next dozen years, they gained only one-third the amount of weight that breakfast skippers did.
The findings don't prove that morning meals, per se, thwart weight gain, the researchers said.
RELATED BMI higher in type 2 diabetes patients who eat breakfast late: Study
But they do add to evidence that people who eat breakfast tend to weigh less, said Connie Diekman, a registered dietitian who directs university nutrition at Washington University in St. Louis.
