Jan 22, (THAINDIAN NEWS) A recent study by a team of researchers has brought a complete different version to the concept of dieting. While the traditional concept for keeping away from calories suggested that one should go for a heavy breakfast instead of indulging into a sumptuous meal during lunch and dinner, the new study refutes the traditional way. Instead it suggests that consumption of more food at breakfast is likely to heap on more calories for in most of the cases people tend to eat the same quantity of food during the other meals too.
Earlier it was advised that one should opt for a heavy breakfast and you will tend to burn calories for you must restrict yourself from eating more during the rest of the day. However, now it has been proved that no matter how less or more you eat at breakfast time, the same amount of food is still eaten by people during the rest of the meals. Dr. Volker Schusdziarra of the Else-Kroner-Fresenius Center of Nutritional Medicine with his team of experts conducted a study on 280 obese patients and 100 normal weight people who complained of weight problems.
The team had advised all the individuals to keep a record of the details of every thing that they ate during this observation period. While the experts had advised the obese people a period of 10 days, the normal weight people were asked to go through a period of 14 days. The results showed that the amount of calories differed amongst individuals of both the groups. While the calories consumed at breakfast varied from 121 to 606 calories for the obese, it ranged 134 to 559 calories for the normal people. Although, a heavy breakfast tends to keep one away from a late morning snack, but it certainly does not prevents the extra calories gained at the end of the day.
