US health scientists at the University of Alabama have discussed that a traditional English fry-up breakfast consisting of bacon, eggs, sausages, black pudding and beans - gives you a better start to the day than eating other breakfasts, including muesli and fruit, which gives your blood sugar levels an initial boost but then leaves you craving more food throughout the day.
Research into the best breakfast to eat for weight loss has found that eating a high protein / high fat breakfast in the morning boosts the metabolism - a person's ability to burn calories throughout the day - as well as regulating blood sugar. This means that after eating a fry-up breakfast, you're less likely to overeat durirng the rest of the day and consequently eat less total calories.
The people behind the study suggest that the old saying "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper" actually works when looking for weight loss. Eating the majority of your day's calorie total in the morning not only leaves you fuller for longer, it also increases the body's ability to burn body fat throughout the day.
