A Big Breakfast , Burns More Daily Calories, , Study Says.
The research can be found in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
Subjects used were young males in healthy condition and with a normal BMI (body mass index).
Compared to those who combined a small morning meal with a large dinner.
Subjects who ate a big breakfast burned twice as many calories throughout the day.
Scientists say it's due to the amount of energy for processing food in the morning.
They add the term for this is “diet-induced thermogenesis.".
Researchers add that the burned calories are only 15 percent of the total amount shed per day.
This means watching what you eat is still necessary when looking to lose weight
