When a Dieter Eats Affects Weight Loss

Earlier main meal better--

Really? When a Dieter Eats Can Influence Weight Loss - "But there was a critical difference in the timing of their main meal of the day, which in this case, because of the Mediterranean setting, was lunch. In both groups, the meal comprised about 40 percent of their daily calories. But one group consistently ate it before 3 p.m. daily, while the other did so after 3 p.m. By the end of the study, despite similar caloric intakes, the late eaters had lost significantly less weight. They also showed lower insulin sensitivity, which increases the risk of diabetes. Weight loss strategies, the authors wrote, should focus not just on calories and nutrients, “but also the timing of food.” THE BOTTOM LINE - The timing of your meals may not be everything when it comes to weight loss, but it does appear to play a role."
