Spanish Have the Answer to the Fat Loss Factor
(Newswire.net -- February 5, 2013) New York, NY -- There have been many myths about weight loss and dieting, but research published this week found that out of 420 people on a 20-week weight-loss programme, those who ate an early lunch lost 2.2kg more than those who ate lunch later (9.9kg versus 7.7kg).
The study, which was carried out in Spain, classified a late lunch as after 3pm. Both groups of people ate the same calories: 40% of their daily total was consumed at lunch. When they ate breakfast or dinner didn't make any difference, but we don't know about other factors, such as when they exercised. It was an observational study, which means it couldn't prove that eating a later lunch reduced weight loss, it can only show the two might be linked. However it adds to the debate on whether a calorie is a calorie regardless of when you eat it and where it comes from. If eating earlier could mean you convert fewer calories to fat, surely it's worth a try?
Usually you would probably eat lunch earlier than 3pm so this study won't change many people’s lives. However, research has shown that evening snacking can make you put on weight – although the tests were only conducted on mice.
Before you ditch the bedtime snacks, they also did research on rhesus monkeys (far more like us than mice) has suggested that those who eat most of their food at night are not more likely to get fat than those who don't.
Prof Marta Garaulet, professor of Physiology at the University of Murcia Spain, and lead author of the study, said: "This study emphasises that the timing of food intake itself may play a significant role in weight regulation."
She said diet programmes should take into account timing of meals as well as content.
The internet is awash with weight loss and diet information, much are completely a waste of time, but a new product called, Garcinia Cambogia is the latest weight loss discovery to take television health programs and online health news sites by storm.
The supplement is extracted from the rind of the Garcinia Cambogia fruit (a small pumpkin shaped fruit sometimes called a tamarind).
Doctors say their studies showed an increase in weight loss 2 to 3 times more than those not taking any Garcinia Cambogia Extract, which resulted in up to 10 pounds or more per month without change to diet or exercise. Garcinia Cambogia is a “Dual Action Fat Buster” that suppresses appetite and prevents fat from being made.
