Human metabolism follows a daily rhythm, with our hormones, enzymes and digestive systems primed for food intake in the morning and afternoon. During the day, the pancreas increases its production of the hormone insulin, which controls blood sugar levels, and then slows it down at night. Researchers found that overweight adults lost more weight and had greater improvements in blood sugar, insulin and cardiovascular risk factors when they ate a large breakfast, modest lunch and small dinner compared to the opposite: A small breakfast and a large dinner. It confirms an age-old adage: Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.
