Lunch not too late

Lunch not too late

People who eat early lunch have less trouble losing weight.

Not only what you eat, but also the timing is important when you want to lose a few kilos, according to a study by Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and the University of Murcia.

For this study, 420 people on a diet were followed. The group that had lunch after 3 p.m. lost 25 percent less weight than the early lunchers.

Side note
The research was done in Spain, where lunch is more often seen as the main meal of the day.

Are you an early or late luncher?
