High Fat Breakfast the Best?

Filed under ‘I always knew it’. I mean seriously, bacon and eggs gets you going for the day. It’s just a known fact 🙂

Break out the bacon and eggs. Researchers at the University of Alabama have found the best way to start your day may be with a high fat breakfast. By eating “like a king” in the morning, they said it may prevent metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by abdominal obesity, high triglycerides, insulin resistance and other heart disease risk factors.

The study, published in the current International Journal of Obesity, examined how different types of foods and specific timing of intake influenced the development of metabolic syndrome in mice.

The study revealed that mice fed a meal higher in fat after waking up had normal metabolic profiles. On the other hand, they found mice that ate a carbohydrate-rich meal in the morning and a high fat meal at the end of the day had increased weight gain, glucose intolerance and other factors related to metabolic syndrome.
