Intermittent Fasting? Or Skip Dinner??

March 7th, 2019

Intermittent fasting has become a popular way to try and lose weight. Certainly, reducing caloric content and avoiding between meal snacking can support weight loss. However, interestingly, newer research is showing our metabolic rate is supported by having breakfast be the largest meal, then lunch, with only a light dinner. Better, yet, having breakfast be the largest meal followed by a mid-afternoon lunch and skipping dinner. They do point out that, during famine situations, eating the most calories at dinner may be beneficial. Oh, we have so much more to learn. But my favorite quote is of Michael Pollan: “Eat Real Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants.” To your health!!
