It is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but according to a new revision BMJ Wednesday, it will not help to lose weight. In the study it is not proven that bad evidence helps us to eat for breakfast to reduce calories or lose weight. More damning, to skip breakfasts would be absolutely better to find some evidence for our waistline – you probably need to keep it steady.
There are good reasons to eat early in the day, especially if you are young. The study has shown that eating a healthy breakfast (think of fruit, vegetables and whole grain) helps develop development of children and adolescents and is strictly maintained at school. Many public health organizations and doctors add a healthy breakfast to the routine, as a way of preventing obesity or promoting weight loss.
The theory behind this advice is very simple: it will speed up your metabolism at the beginning and you will feel more at breakfast and more in breakfast. Thanks to this theory, through some studies. These studies are commonly observed, even indirect cross-party associations (for example, breakfast or weight loss or less obesity eating or loss) in the group size of people. But in recent years, randomized controlled trials (generally, based on the gold standard of evidence) have not found the same link.
"The problem is that those who eat breakfast do not differ, for which reason, the problems with observational studies would not be good for eating, but the healthy lifestyle of the individual and the food choices will create beneficial weight," senior writer Flavia Cicuttini, epidemiologist at the Monash University in Austria One, say Gizmodo by email.
Cicuttini and his team decided to gather and study the most important clinical trials on the subject, to be able to address this question, which scientists call meta-analysis. In the United States, the United Kingdom and Japan, they analyzed 13 trials in 1992 and 2016, collectively analyzing the weight of more than 500 adults and the body mass index. If trials attempting to add to breakfast or lose it could cause weight; Others affected the daily calorie intake.
"Those who ate breakfast ate with 260 more calories per day and we had an average gain of 0.44 kilograms [roughly a pound]"Cicuttini said." The most important thing was not to improve metabolism, either those who ate breakfast or did not feed too much later on the day. "
This model was held where studies were carried out or how many volunteers weighed.
The authors had to take their findings as definitely not taken. On the one hand, the overall quality of the evaluation evaluation was low. Some of the studies that blinded the volunteers knew whether or not they had breakfast. In the cases given, someone might want to hide, but the researchers rarely blinded the results obtained by the volunteers, calculating the researchers, other sciences. All the research, the groups found, also had a high or low risk of bias.
The authors say that they will do more research, if possible, with great trials and high quality, to be absolutely sure. But, meanwhile, Cicuttini said, above all, it is clear from his research that it should be on average.
"It's a key message if you like those who like breakfast," he said. "However, there is no evidence that people change their nutrition pattern to get hunger, avoid weight gain or obesity … Reverse!"
