Research has found that those who eat most of their food earlier in the day tend to consume much less calories than those who prefer to take their main meal at night.
Breakfasters also seem to generally have a lower overall daily intake of fat and calories, but a higher intake of carbohydrates than people who skip a meal when they awake.
Breakfast literally means to break your fast, because you have not eaten for whatever hours you have slept overnight.
When you awake, your blood sugar level is low and, unless you take breakfast, you will find that you are more tempted to eat fatty and sweet junk food later in the morning.
The researchers recommend that you have about 20% of you whole daily intake of calories at breakfast, preferably containing some low GI, complex carbohydrates, some protein and a small amount of fat.
This probably rules out a daily breakfast of fatty sausages, bacon and fried eggs.
Try poached eggs instead, and only one a day.
Give the bacon a miss.
Use wholemeal and grain-filled bread for your toast, and cut right back on the butter.
There is a well known saying that goes - eat breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dinner like a pauper - and this, indeed, seems to be a good formula for maintaining your ideal weight.
Of course, one proven way to condition yourself to eat regular meals, which is one of the keys to good weight management, is to use hypnosis.
You can either visit a professional hypnotherapist, or listen to professionally recorded hypnosis sessions, specifically designed to make you single minded about pursuing healthy eating habits.
Being single minded means that both your conscious and subconscious minds are united.
Too often, you might be telling yourself consciously that you want to eat healthy food, but your subconscious is yearning for sweets and fat.
Your subconscious will win every time.
That is where you core beliefs reside and that is where hypnosis can open the gates for new, healthy beliefs.
Hypnosis is an accepted method of ensuring you have an ingrained belief in your subconscious mind that you will eat healthy food and maintain a healthy lifestyle which is, after all, the best weight loss diet and a solid plan for safe weight loss.
