Breakfast Not Important to Weight Loss

Most Important Meal? Review Questions Whether Breakfast Is Really Good for Weight Loss Credit Shutterstock

'Caution is needed when recommending breakfast for weight loss in adults, as it could have the opposite effect. The studies were mainly from the United States or the United Kingdom. On average, those who skipped breakfast were a pound lighter than those who did not.

Breakfast gives you energy, stops you snacking later in the day and supplies essential nutrients - so we are told.

Additionally, there was little difference in effect of breakfast on normal and overweight people.

Maintaining a healthy body weight is important for overall wellbeing and for avoiding certain illnesses - but weight isn't the only marker of good health, and shouldn't be your only consideration when it comes to making decisions about food.

A new study led by Australian researchers, found that those who skipped breakfast consumed an average of 260 fewer calories per day.

Although the authors pointed out that there were some inconsistencies and varying quality in the studies included in the review, they said it appears that eating breakfast isn't a helpful strategy for losing weight.

As tempting as this might be if you have a weight-loss goal, the reality is that regularly skipping breakfast, or any meal, can be unsafe.

Prof Cicuttini explains that the focus should be not placed on when we eat our largest meal of the day - whether it's at lunch or breakfast - but on total daily calorie content.

Previous research has shown weight loss benefits of sticking to a morning meal.

Meanwhile this new study, conducted by Monash University researchers, used evidence from 13 randomised controlled trials in developed countries, including the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Japan over 28 years to determine the effect of regularly eating breakfast on weight change and daily energy intake.

Breakfast is often said to be the most important meal of the day, but according to a new review out Wednesday in the BMJ, it won't help you lose weight.

However, Spector (himself a breakfast eater) acknowledged that time-restricted feeding is a "young discipline" that may only prove effective for "certain people".

She said that around 80% of people in Ireland don't eat enough fibre and she said she would have "a huge concern if people suddenly cut it out". "Do what works best for you", said review senior author Flavia Cicuttini. "Or, you might just enjoy eating breakfast foods".

It has previously been suggested that eating breakfast may help with weight loss because of the efficient burning of calories early in the day preventing overeating later on.

It's common for people on such protocols to break their fasts at lunchtime, regularly skipping breakfast and finishing their day's feeding with dinner at about 8pm.

More research is needed into the impact of breakfast on metabolism and weight.

Sarah Coe, a nutrition scientist at the British Nutrition Foundation, said that the evidence for the relationship between eating or skipping breakfast and weight loss "is mixed".

Coe, who was not involved in the research, added that a healthy breakfast is "just one part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle". It is a good opportunity to get "important nutrients into the diet", such as fiber from whole grain breakfast cereals and calcium from dairy foods.
