Want an Edge on Losing Weight?

Want an edge on losing weight?

You might consider the TIMING of your meal.

An interesting study conducted in Spain with Tufts University and the University of Murcia, looked at the timing of meals. Specifically, they wanted to see if eating an early (before 3:00p.m.) or late (after 3:00p.m.) lunch made any difference in weight loss efforts.

What they found was that early lunch eaters lost more weight than late eaters. The findings are reported in the International Journal of Obesity.

Noted in the study was that late eaters often consumed fewer calories at breakfast or even skipped breakfast–a no-no  for dieters.

But what may give us a clue about the importance of the timing of a meal is that the late eaters had lower insulin sensitivity–one risk factor for diabetes.

So next time you schedule lunch, consider bumping it up to an early time. it just might help shed a few of those unwanted pounds.
