The study involved a different group of peoples with different BMI, different eating habits, different medical history. At the beginning of the study, the participants were asked to fill out a questionnaire which included various parameters, including their meal frequency and time of consumption of meals
The study showed that people who ate at regular intervals had a decrease in BMI. Conversely, people who ate more than 3 meals with frequent snacking, showed increased BMI. The study also showed that people who ate breakfast on regular basis tend to lose more weight than people who skipped breakfast! The other important finding was that people who have heavier breakfast showed a larger decrease in BMI in contrast to those who had heavier lunch and dinner!
