BREAKFAST

Big breakfast with lots of protein & carbs causes more weight loss than low-protein, low-carbs

A recent study suggests that eating a low-calorie diet limited to 1240 calories per day that includes a big breakfast containing 610 calories with lots of protein (47 grams), some fat (22 grams) and a moderate amount of carbohydrates (58 grams) causes more weight loss than eating low-calorie diet containing 1085 calories per day that includes a small breakfast (290 calories) with a small amount of protein (12 grams), a small amount of carbohydrates (7 grams), and the same amount of fat (22 grams) -- "low calorie, low carb".

After four months, women on the diet with the low-calorie, low-carb diet that included a small breakfast had lost 28 pounds compared to 23 pounds for those who ate the big breakfast with lots of protein and a moderate amount of carbs.

However, after eight months, women eating the big breakfast had lost 44.5 pounds compared to only 10 pounds for those in the low-calorie, low card group -- the low-calorie, low-carb group having regained 18 pounds.

As a percentage of body weight, those who ate the big breakfast had lost 21 percent of their body weight compared to only 4.5 percent for those in the low-calorie, low-carb group. Read the entire article | Email this article
