Skipping breakfast turns you into a calorie-and-fat-seeking blimp10/17/2012
Skipping breakfast might seem like a sly way to slash calories off your daily intake, but it really transforms you into a fat-seeking machine. That’s according to Imperial College scientists who investigated the brains of 21 people: first after they’d eaten a healthy morning meal, and again when they’d gone without. The scientists flashed photos of foods in front of study subjects during an MRI scan. The scans revealed that fatty, calorific foods appeared more appealing than healthy choices to the hungry brain. Not only that, but when served lunch after forgoing breakfast, participants sucked down around 250 more calories than they did when they’d had their Wheaties. We get the message, Pop-Tarts at the ready. [Source]
