Having a good breakfast, and making a light dinner, is a simple way to keep weight under control and prevent obesity and the risk of diabetes. It is ensured by a small study published in “Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism of the Endocrine Society”.

The body spends energy when we digest food for absorption, digestion, transport and storage of nutrients. This process, known as thermogenesis Diet-induced (DIT), is a measure of how our metabolism is working and may differ depending on the time of the meal.

“Our results show that a meal taken during breakfast, regardless of the amount of calories it contains, generates twice as much diet-induced thermogenesis as the same meal consumed at dinner time,” explains the author of the study. , Juliane Richter, from the University of Lübeck in Germany. These data, he adds, are relevant because they “underline the value of making a full breakfast.”

Our results show that a meal taken during breakfast, regardless of the amount of calories it contains, generates twice as much diet-induced thermogenesis as the same meal consumed at dinner time.

The researchers conducted a study for three days with 16 men who consumed a low-calorie breakfast and a calorie-rich dinner, and vice versa in a second stage. In this way they discovered that identical calorie consumption led to a diet-induced thermogenesis 2.5 times higher during the morning than at night just after rich or low-calorie meals.

The food-induced increase in blood sugar and insulin concentrations decreased after breakfast compared to dinner. The results also show that eating a low-calorie breakfast increases appetite, specifically for sweets.

«We recommend patients with obesity and healthy people have a hearty breakfast instead of dinner time to reduce body weight and prevent metabolic diseases, ”concludes Richter.
