For a long time, hearty breakfast had been considered a key to slenderness. That was because it presumably helped to consume fewer calories during the day. However, the experts from the University of Munich are convinced this theory is a myth.
In the process of a special experiment, the scientists investigated food habits of a few hundred people. For two weeks, the participants of the study had to keep a diary recording everything they ate or drank. Some of them would refuse to eat in the morning, and others, on the contrary, preferred a hearty breakfast.
As a result of the experiment, the scientists noted that proponents of hearty breakfasts and those who neglected their morning meal both had the same amount of calories for their lunch and dinner, as it was said in the research published in the Nutrition Journal.
