Most important meal of the day: Challenging old brekky traditions!
A prominent gut health and nutrition expert has suggested we should be eating breakfast later, a few hours after waking.
It’s all to do with fasting overnight, and the fact that many people are eating dinner later at night.
Professor Tim Spector from King’s College in London advises to delay the first meal of the day until around 11am.
And, it might be best to avoid things like toast and cereal straight up.
Nutritionist Jessica Cox says it’s up to the individual.
“If you are looking at experimenting into type of restricted eating patterns within 24 hours, you really want that first meal to be more protein dense, include some good quality fats, and less of a carbohydrate dump,” she told Sofie Formica.
She says the crux of it is to focus on protein rich meals at the start of the day, to avoid an insulin or glucose spike.
Although she advises against getting too fixated in studies!
