Health & Fitness Is everything you've been told about breakfast a lie? Gastric surgeon claims skipping food in the morning is the key to losing weight because it's the LEAST important meal of the day
This Healthy Eating Tip Will Help You Stay Within The Recommended Daily Calorie Intake
A new campaign is helping adults to reduce excess calories.According to Public Health England, adults in the UK are consuming more than 200 to 300 calories more than they need every day, with many unsure of how many calories they should be consuming overall. To help tackle this so-called 'calorie creep', the organisation has launched its new 'One You' campaign to make it easier to manage calorie intake, particularly when eating out.
We have always been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but could we be wrong?
An Australian gastric surgeon is now claiming that skipping breakfast is the key to slimming our waist line.
Dr Andrew Renaut thinks we should stop eating breakfast all together.
'Breakfast, as far as I'm concerned, is the least important meal of the day and I think is contributing to the problem as far as obesity is concerned,' he told Sunrise.
Dr Renaut explained that there are three main factors we need to consider when it comes to our diet and they are how much we eat, what foods we eat and when we eat.
How Many Times a Day Should You Eat For Weight Loss? A Dietitian's Answer
When it comes to eating for weight loss, there seems to be two schools of thought.Those in the three-meals-a-day camp argue that three meals are all you need to eat a day's worth of quality, well-balanced nutrition, while those who eat five meals a day claim it helps rev up your metabolism and lose weight.
This is because when we are constantly eating and digesting food our bodies aren't given a chance to have a break.
Dr Renault said this means our bodies aren't able to bring insulin levels down.
'We need to address the amount of insulin we're causing the body to produce because that translates to insulin resistance, and that's the underlying problem with obesity,' he said.
With obesity levels at a record high in this country, Dr Renault believes this technique can help stop obesity.
Not having breakfast isn't the only step, as there is also only a six hour window that you're allowed to eat in each day, which is 1pm to 7pm.
Carbs to avoid and to keep while trying to lose weight
Just like there are superheroes and villains, there are good carbs and bad carbs.If you choose the right ones, carbohydrates can help you banish belly fat, feel satiated, and score energy. After all, carbs are the body’s primary source of fuel. But when it comes to weight loss, not all carbs are created equal. Culprits are proven to slow your metabolism down, plummet your energy levels in the long run, and digress you from scoring those hard-earned weight-loss wins.
An added bonus is that you don't need to count calories within that time frame.
'You don't need to restrict anything, with one exception, and that is refined carbohydrates,' Dr Renault explained.
'So everything else, fresh meat, fresh vegetables, fresh fish, nuts, avocados and dairy is absolutely fine.
'You can eat all that beautiful food and you don't need to restrict the amount. It's very important that you don't calorie restrict.'
For those that are worried that they won't be able to go about their day without having a meal, Dr Renault said your body will adjust.
'What you're doing in the 18 hours that you're not eating is you're allowing your insulin to come back down to zero,' he said.
Why counting calories won't guarantee weight loss
It's about what you eat, not how much.And new scientific research has proven this point exactly, with its findings that counting calories alone certainly won't guarantee weight loss – or good health. The study, published in Obesity Reviews, saw 22 American scientists from different universities team together to research just how important the nutritional value of an item of food is – not simply its calorific value.
Although you can eat whatever you want in that six hour window, Dr Renault said that it has to be within reason, as of course this doesn't mean you can go off and eat six burgers.
'Everything in moderation. The only thing you need to watch is refined carbohydrates,' he explained.
'That's sugar and anything that contains sugar so anything that's processed and anything out of a packet probably has had sugar added.'
He recommends looking in your fridge and chucking out anything with a fat-free label as they take out the fat and put sugar in its place instead.
'Fat doesn't make you fat, sugar makes you fat,' he added.
'I have two promises - the first is that this will work and secondly, this is the only thing that will work.'
