Not Just What, But When
A study looking at weight loss compared two groups of overweight or obese women: a breakfast group and a dinner group. Both groups were placed on a 1400 kcal diet, but the times when the calories were consumed was different. The breakfast groups consumed the majority of their calories at breakfast time (700 kcal) and very few calories at supper time (200 kcal) while the dinner group ate few calories for breakfast (200 kcal) and the bulk of their calories in the evening for dinner (700 kcal). After 12 weeks, both groups had lost weight, but the breakfast group had lost 2,5 times more weight than the supper group. This indicates that not only what is eaten, but when it is eaten influences weight loss.
So if you are wanting to loose weight, consider going light in the evening.
