Breakfast may not be the "most important meal of the day" after all, at least for people trying to lose weight. A new review study finds no strong evidence to support the ideas that eating breakfast helps with weight loss or that skipping breakfast promotes weight gain. Rather, the review found that people who ate breakfast consumed more calories during the day and weighed slightly more than people who skipped the morning meal.

It turns out, just exercising alone likely won’t result in weight loss.A study from Arizona State University, as reported by Cosmopolitan in 2014, studied 81 healthy women.

Despite their rigorous workouts, the women, who were told to eat as they normally would during the experiment, did not lose weight. Instead, results showed that nearly 70 percent of the women gained weight during the study, with most of the weight coming from pure body fat.So, what should those who want to lose weight do? According to Shawn M. Talbott, a nutritional biochemist … [Read more...] about Does Exercise Work Without Dieting? Why New Year’s Weight Loss Is Hard

The study, published by University of Illinois at Chicago researchers in the journal Nutrition and Healthy Aging, is the first to examine the effect of time-restricted eating.Time-restricted eating is a form of fasting that limits food consumption to certain hours of each day.
