Weight loss: THIS is exactly when you need to eat to lose weight on your diet plan

Weight loss is affected by the time that you eat your food, not just the diet plan that you choose to follow.

Do you know when you should be eating your main meals to shed the pounds effortlessly?


A study from the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, University of Missouri found that those who eat breakfast are less likely to be obese, and their hunger was reduced daily – meaning it was easier to lose weight.

They test specified that subjects must eat a high-protein breakfast between 6:00 am and 9:45 am to feel the benefits of the early morning meal.

The high protein meal in the morning prevents fat gain over 12 weeks.


The earlier you eat lunch the better, according to a study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition form 2016.

The study found: “Eating late is related to lower weight-loss effectiveness.”

What is more, it is important to eat most of your calories in your day before 3 pm, a study from the  International Journal of Obesity claimed. 


Eating late at night is going to play mayhem with your waistline, and eating later in general across the day leads to less weight loss.

A study from the University of Murcia found that those who ate the same amount of calories (1400) across a 20 week period.

Those who ate late lost weight at a slower weight than those who ate earlier.

What is more, dieters who switched their routine to stop eating at 7 pm lost weight and slept better. 

Eating a high protein breakfast is one way to kick-start weight loss effectively, nutritionists have said.

A breakfast of just fruit is something that your waistline will not thank you for.

A diet expert Martina Della Vedova, Nutritionist at Natures Plus claimed those looking to lose weight should never opt for just fruit at breakfast.
