Amer­i­can sci­en­tists, who con­duct­ed a large-scale study togeth­er with their Span­ish col­leagues, came to an unex­pect­ed con­clu­sion.

It turns out that the suc­cess of los­ing weight large­ly depends on the tim­ing of the meal. This is espe­cial­ly true for lunch. If you eat din­ner ear­li­er, you can lose weight faster and more effi­cient­ly.

Dur­ing the exper­i­ment, 420 over­weight vol­un­teers were select­ed. The par­tic­i­pants were divid­ed into two groups: the first group had lunch until 15.00, and those in the sec­ond group received lunch after this time.

At the end of the study, it turned out that the sub­jects from the first group lost weight much faster. And the vol­un­teers in the sec­ond group were found to have reduced sen­si­tiv­i­ty to insulin, which increas­es the risk of devel­op­ing dia­betes.

Sci­en­tists have also found that the tim­ing of break­fast and din­ner does not mat­ter for weight loss.
