Over two decades ago, a landmark study showed that participants who ate a large breakfast lost 10 pounds more than those who ate a smaller breakfast, even though both groups consumed the same amount of total calories per day. Other studies also showed that shifting food intake to earlier in the day increased weight loss. The reason is related to our circadian rhythm. Our circadian rhythm orchestrates metabolism over a 24-hour period defining ideal times for energy expenditure, appetite and insulin sensitivity.
