Breakfast is a Dangerous Meal

Durata: 9h 13m

Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but only if we skip it.Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but only if we skip it.Since Victorian times, we have been told to breakfast like kings and dine like paupers. In the wake of his own type 2 diabetes diagnosis, Professor Terence Kealey was given the same advice. He soon noticed that his glucose levels were unusually high after eating first thing in the morning. But if he continued to fast until lunchtime they fell to a normal level. Professor Kealey began to question how much evidence there was to support the advice he’d been given, and whether there might be an advantage for some to not eating breakfast after all.Breakfast is a Dangerous Meal asks:What is the reliable scientific and medical evidence for eating breakfast?Why do people suppose that eating breakfast reduces the total amount of food they consume over the day, when the opposite is true?Who should consider intermittent fasting by removing breakfast from their daily routine?From weight loss to reduced blood pressure, what are the potential benefits of missing breakfast?‘A lively and forensic piece of science writing that manages to be at once polemical and yet thoughtfully engaged with the evidence’ The Times‘This scrupulous study constructs a compelling … series of arguments against what has long been considered the most important meal of the day’ TelegraphTerence Kealey trained in medicine at Barts Hospital Medical School, University of London ahead of moving to Oxford for a PhD in clinical biochemistry. From Oxford he moved to the University of Newcastle before, via a Wellcome Senior Clinical Research Fellowship, lecturing in clinical biochemistry at Cambridge. Between 2001 and 2014 he was Vice Chancellor of the University of Buckingham, and he is now a visiting scholar at the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute, Washington, DC, where he is focusing on food policy.• For fans of Michael Mosley’s 5:2 book, The Fast Diet (580k TCM), Breakfast is a Dangerous Meal supports intermittent fasting as a way to avoid courting high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and weight gain.• Science-based information and advice that will change how we think about meal times and lead to sustainable changes in eating behaviour.• Nutritional strategies for prediabetics and type 2 diabetics, as well as anyone with an interest in maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle.
