Apparently We Should All Be Eating Two Breakfasts
Um, can we get a hell yeah?
Breakfast isn’t just the most important meal of the day, it’s also one of our favourites. We mean, who can say no to yummy pancakes, topped with bacon and covered in maple syrup? Not us, that’s for sure.
Now we’re learning that one delish dose of morning goodness might not be enough and that if fat loss is your goal then you can happily chow down on a secondary brekkie without worrying about the extra calories.
Pretty deadly, huh?
A study by Yale and the University of Connecticut, tracked the weight of 600 students of age 12 to 13 for three years. One group skipped breakfast entirely, a second group ate one meal at breakfast and a third group had one breakfast at home and a second breakfast in school.
The results showed that the group who skipped breakfast were more likely to be overweight or obese compared to the group who indulged in two brekkies.
Why so? The researchers speculated that it was because the group who missed breakfast were so hungry come lunch that they ended up overeating.
Ergo, it’s two breakfasts for the win.
We only have one question: does this mean we can have two lunches and dinners as well?
