Weight Loss Tip: Eat a Lighter Lunch

September 13, 2011 By: office Post a Comment

When you are trying to lose weight, do you find yourself to be hungry often? A new Cornell University study finds that eating a lighter lunch may be the key to weight loss without feeling the hunger, as described in a recent Science Daily article.

Weight Loss Tip - Lighter Lunch

If you are trying to lose weight and keep it off, consider eating light, portion-controlled meals for lunch.

In this study, participants who ate portion-controlled lunches did not compensate by eating more calories later in the day. This leads researchers to believe that the human body does not possess the mechanism necessary to notice a small drop in energy intake.

The study followed the food intake of 17 volunteers who ate whatever they wanted from a buffet for one week. For the next two weeks, half the group selected their lunch by choosing from one of six commercially available, portion-controlled foods, but could eat as much as they wished at other meals or snacks. For the final two weeks, the other half of volunteers followed the same regimen.

The results of the study found that while eating portion-controlled lunches, each participant consumed 250 fewer calories per day and lost, on average, 1.1 pounds.

The findings of this study reinforce the philosophy of Shane Diet Resorts. This weight loss program helps adults to jump-start a healthy lifestyle through portion-controlled meals and regular exercise. It is a simple formula that equals success.
