So you’re doing everything right. You’ve done the impossible and stayed true to your New Year’s resolutions.
You stick to your diet and remain ever mindful of what you eat; but somehow the weight loss just isn’t going as planned.
According to a new study published today in the International Journal of Obesity, when it comes to losing weight, the time you eat can have as much of an effect as what you eat. (Original article appears here.)
“We should start to consider meal timing in addition to calories and meal composition when thinking about weight loss.”
-Frank Scheer, senior author of the study, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and an associate neuroscientist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
It’s definitely food for thought, and a welcome bit of news as far as we’re concerned. Who wants to put off that long-awaited lunch break anyway? After all, doing so is bad for your health!
