A dietician has claimed that breakfast choices can affect calorie intake for the rest of the day.
According to Sian Porter, a consultant dietician and spokeswoman for the British Dietetic Association, there is some evidence to support the notion that what you eat first thing in the day can reduce your appetite for lunch.
She suggested that foods that raise blood sugar slowly are effective in this matter.
Earlier this month, Nutrition Journal published an article claiming that reducing energy intake at breakfast leads to a lower total calorie intake over the course of the day.
People trying to lose weight as part of their obesity treatment might want to consider cutting back on their calories from breakfast to help balance out their daily energy.
Ms Porter added that people who are dieting should focus on making one change at a time and only adding a new target once the individual has mastered the first thing.
