Jerusalem: Taking a high-calorie breakfast may protect you against diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular problems, a new study has found. Metabolism is impacted by the body`s circadian rhythm ? the biological process that the body follows over a 24 hour cycle. So the time of day we eat can have a big impact on the way our bodies process food, said Professor Daniela Jakubowicz of Tel Aviv University`s Sackler Faculty of Medicine and the Diabetes Unit at Wolfson Medical Center. In the study, she discovered that those who eat their largest daily meal at breakfast are far more likely to lose weight and waist line circumference than those who eat a large dinner. Participants who ate a larger breakfast - which included a dessert item such as a piece of chocolate cake or a cookie - also had significantly lower levels of insulin, glucose, and triglycerides throughout the day, translating into a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol.
