A Small Breakfast can Help you Lose Weight

If you are one of those who are eyeing weight loss, you can do it with a small breakfast every day. A new study has found that a smaller breakfast can help people lose weight because they reduce their portion size in the morning and do not eat more calories to compensate later in the day.

Researchers served cereal, milk, scrambled egg, ham and brown toast with butter to 33 overweight people. During the observation period, they reduced the portion sizes for some of the participants, and then counted their calories over the rest of the day to see if it had any impact on their eating habits. Breakfast portion size was reduced by up to 40 per cent in the study by the Medical Research Council (MRC) Human Nutrition Research Unit, resulting in up to 269 fewer calories consumed over the course of the day.

It was found out that the difference in size did not affect the amount of food the participants ate over the rest of the day. However, Dr. Jebb, Head of Diet & Population Health at the MRC Human Nutrition Research Unit, said that the results may not be borne out in everyday life, where there are far more opportunities to snack between breakfast, lunch and dinner.
