Eating a big breakfast 'does not help with weight loss'

According to new research, whether a person eats their largest meal early or late in the day does not affect the way their body metabolises calories. For the study, scientists from the University of Aberdeen investigated myths surrounding the timing of eating and how this might influence either body weight or health. After studying the eating habits of 16 men and 14 women, the researchers found that energy expenditure and total weight loss were the same for morning-loaded and evening-loaded diets. The subjects lost an average of just over three kilograms (about seven pounds) during each of the four-week periods.
