Did you hear the one about breakfast being the most important meal of the day?
It sure is, especially for people with obesity and type 2 diabetes!
A diet of three meals per day, where breakfast is the largest, followed by an average lunch and small dinner had waaaay more positive effects compared to six small meals evenly distributed throughout the day.
Tel Aviv University professor and study author Daniela Jakubowicz, M.D said when you eat and how frequently you eat, is more important than what you eat AND how many calories you eat.
For example, a slice of bread at breakfast is less fattening than a slice of bread at night due to changes in body metabolism throughout the day.
