Have you ever heard the phrase ‘Eat Breakfast like a king, Lunch like a prince and Dinner like a pauper?’ It’s something that my grandmother used to say and it seems that this ‘old wives’ tale’ is one that is important for weight loss! That’s right, scientific research has proven that if you eat this way, you will be on the fast track to losing excess kilograms!
A recent scientific study compared the weight loss rates of people who ate ‘big breakfast – small dinner’ to those who ate ‘small breakfast – big dinner’. Despite both groups consuming the same amount of calories, those who ate a large breakfast lost much more weight. In fact, over a 12 week period, those who consumed most of their calories in the morning lost an average of 5kg MORE than the group who ate most of their calories at night. Not only that, the big breakfast eaters also were much healthier, as they recorded lower insulin, blood glucose & triglyceride levels.

It is amazing how many people in the quest to lose weight, will skip breakfast. It’s pure madness – breakfast actually ‘wakes your body up’ and kick starts your metabolism for the day! Not only that, by eating in the morning, you are helping to ‘stave off’ hunger cravings from occurring later in the day.
At The Natural Way, we have always advocated the importance of having a GOOD breakfast – in fact, one of The Natural Way weight loss programs allows you to eat bacon and eggs for breakfast (with no limit on how much bacon or eggs you have). At The Natural Way there is no such thing as a ‘diet’ or ‘feeling hungry’- just sensible eating plans where you will get to eat REAL food and lose weight!
