Eat breakfast, binge less

January 22nd, 2006

A recent study by researchers at Yale University compared the eating habits of 173 obese men and women. Participants who ate more frequent meals, and especially those who ate breakfast, weighed less, and had significantly fewer binge eating episodes than those who did not regularly eat three meals per day.

While this particular study focused on obese participants, it is also generally healthy nutrition advice to eat breakfast and more frequent meals and snacks, spreading out food intake across the entire day rather than the traditional three meals per day.

Among the study group, less than half of the obese patients ate breakfast regularly.
