Indulging in the morning can help you shed pounds.
Eating a large breakfast can help you stay slim. When Venezuelan and U. S. researchers put women on low-carb diets of 1,085 and 1,240 calories a day, with the latter group eating a larger breakfast of 610 more calories, the two groups lost an average of 28 and 21 pounds respectively over four months. But during the ensuing four months, the small-breakfast group reversed itself, gaining an average of 18 pounds, while the big breakfast group lost another 16.5 pounds. The big breakfast eaters were able to sustain their low-carb diet, whereas the small breakfast group were unable to control their addictive eating impulses and their craving for carbohydrates.
