A recent research found that the timing of your meals is crucial to maintain weight as well as offset many lifestyle diseases like hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Researchers said that a good breakfast helped in giving the body the right amount of nutrients, improving mood and keeping disease at bay. Since metabolism is influenced by the circadian rhythm, it is important to follow meal timings strictly. So, it is not just what we eat that matters but also when we eat food that matters in aiding a healthy metabolism.
In a recent study, researchers found that those who consume their hugest daily meal during breakfast have a greater chance of losing weight and having a healthy waistline as compared to those who consume a huge dinner.
Such people also had markedly reduced levels of insulin, glucose, and triglycerides throughout the day, translating into reduced risk of hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
So, "eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper", to live a healthy life.
