A new study published in the International Journal of Obesity, Timing of food intake predicts weight loss effectiveness, evaluates the relationship between meal time and weight-loss. The authors followed 420 patients in Spain during a 20-week period where lunch is the biggest meal of the day. Participants were grouped into early eaters who ate lunch before 3 pm and late eaters who ate lunch after 3 pm. The study showed early eaters lost 25% more weight than late eaters. The authors concluded the timing of the largest meal affects the success of weight-loss regimens. When discussing nutrition habits how often do you stress meal times?
