Eat breakfast like a king and you’ll end up like Henry VIII

Now that's a king-sized breakfast!

How many times have you heard that you shouldn’t skip breakfast if you want to lose weight?  And how about the one that the first meal of the day should also be the biggest because it’ll help you eat less throughout the day?  Turns out eating breakfast like a king could lead to a king-sized belly.

German researchers are out with a new study that reveals people who eat a big breakfast don’t  actually eat less calories throughout the course of the day.  In fact, those who ate a 400 calorie breakfast ate 400 calories more in a day than those who just had a normal breakfast.

  I can’t say that I’m surprised.  People love to eat, give them a reason to eat more disguised as a diet tip and you can be sure they’ll take it.  We’re on the diet in the first place because we don’t know how to eat less, so no wonder our caloric intake doesn’t change.

But the study isn’t all bad news. 

The researchers found that those who ate breakfast, as opposed to those who skipped it, made healthier food choices during the day.
