Fried Breakfast Is Healthiest Way To Start Day, Say Scientists

FriedEgg3Scientists believe that breakfast programmes the metabolism for the rest of the day, and a fatty meal will help the body break down fat later on. Carbohydrate rich foods in contrast appear mainly to prepare the body to break down only carbohydrates, the International Journal of Obesity reports. Dr Martin Young, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, said: “The first meal you have appears to programme your metabolism for the rest of the day. “This study suggests that if you ate a carbohydrate-rich breakfast it would promote carbohydrate utilisation throughout the rest of the day, whereas if you have a fat-rich breakfast, you (can) transfer your energy utilisation between carbohydrate and fat.”

The team of researchers found there may be some truth in the old saying “’eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper’ – may be the key to a healthy body and mind.”

Their study looked at the effects of eating different types of food – and of eating them at different times in the day, according to the Daily Mail.

Mice fed a high fat meal after waking remained healthy, but those given a carb-rich breakfast, followed by a fatty dinner, did not fare as well.

Co-researcher Professor Molly Bray added: “Our study seems to show that if you really want to be able to efficiently respond to mixed meals across a day, a meal in higher fat content in the morning is a good thing.”APP/Telegraph

  1. I was once being treated for a medical condition by an N.D. (doctor of natural medicine). He told me to have two eggs lightly fried in butter every morning (barely cooked) but, the rest of my diet was extremely limited and strict. He said my body needed it. I got better, B”H ,without “real” medications.
