    Default People Who Eat A Big Breakfast Burn Twice As Many Calories

    The Endocrine Society
    February 19 2020

    Eating a big breakfast rather than a large dinner may prevent obesity and high blood sugar, according to new research published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
    Our body expends energy when we digest food for the absorption, digestion, transport and storage of nutrients. This process, known as diet-induced thermogenesis (DIT), is a measure of how well our metabolism is working, and can differ depending on mealtime.

    For the past 6-7 years, I always felt that I was doing things right with a big breakfast, and a (pre) noon time dinner being the last IF (intermittant fasting) meal of the day, and being able to burn off any excess calories for the rest of the day going to bed early with an emptied digested stomach for a much better night's sleep.

    Diet-induced thermogenesis makes logical sense, and clearly it works for some, like Grulla. However, I continue to resist the notion that one size fits all. I have no appetite for breakfast and will not eat when I'm not hungry. The intermittent fast begins for me after the evening meal and continues through at least high noon, limiting my dining window to five or six hours. I've also noticed that my appetite has decreased with age; the quantity I consume at any given meal is rather small, e.g. two boiled eggs at noon or a cup of soup with a piece of fruit. I have noticed this especially in winter, when my physical activity is much more limited than during the summer months. The only source of information I take seriously is my own body's response.

    Agree...we're all different. I, too, have no appetite for "so-called" breakfast. Actually, breakfast--literally means breaking the fast. So, technically, the first meal of the day--whenever its eaten--is "breakfast." The body is an amazing machine, capable of adjusting to almost any eating schedule. I believe the most un-wise thing we can do is to eat when not hungry, trying to maintain some arbitrary feeding schedule. The one rule I abide by is to never retire for the night on a full stomach. I allow "at least" 4 hours between my last meal and when I go to bed.

    I'd say that in summary, "Don't eat by the clock" and "Don't eat before bed" are the two wisest dietary recommendations, period.
