Are Eggs Bad for Your Heart?
Omelet lovers, rejoice. Eating an egg or two a day doesn’t raise the risk of heart disease in healthy people.
#ThursdayBigQuestion Recent research suggests that the timing of your meals may play an important role in weight loss. One study reported in the International Journal of Obesity found that people who ate their main meal earlier in the day (before 3:00 p.m.) lost about 5 pounds more than those who ate later (22 pounds lost versus 17 pounds for late day eaters), with the same diet and exercise program. restricting your “eating window” to about eight or nine hours a day may also influence weight loss. Researchers found that those who limited daily calories to an eight-hour window lost more weight and body fat and retained more muscle mass compared to people who ate the same calories over a longer period of time. And studies suggest that dieters who restricted their eating window were less likely to regain weight after losing weight. 1. Aim to eat dinner by 6:30pm or earlier. 2. If you tend to spread out your meals from early morning until late at night, condense your eating hours until you get to an 8- or 9-hour eating period. 3. Eat most of your daily calories earlier in the day (before 3pm). It helps to have a substantial breakfast – a good mix of complex carbohydrates, healthy fat, and protein – as that may stave off hunger later in the day. Source: WebMD
