Imagine the same diet; the same calories, fat grams, etc. In one group of mice, a high fat meal is consumed early in the day and a high carbohydrate meal later in the day. In the other group of mice, the a high carbohydrate meal is consumed early in the day and a high fat meal later in the day. Most of us tend to eat more fat later in the day at the big meals, so we are like the early-carb / late-fat mice.
But the mice with high-fat breakfasts had “significantly lower body weights and body fat composition” than their counterparts who ate high-fat dinners, according to their study published this week in the International Journal of Obesity.
Those weren’t the only differences. The mice that began the day with more carbs developed insulin resistance, a condition that increases the risk for Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. They also wound up with more insulin, leptin and triglycerides circulating in their blood, which are also associated with diabetes and heart disease. –- LA Times
So at least in mice and most likely in humans too, the timing of daily fat intake may be very important in setting your daily metabolic cycle.
I have the perfect solution for you. In order to make sure you get fat early in the day, try Udo’s Choice Oil Blend (see below) with breakfast. You get a boost to a good metabolic cycle and an ideal fatty acid balance. My bottle says one serving is 14 grams of fat, but it is good fat. It says you can put it in drinks or food, but it tastes fine and I just take it straight.
Udo’s Choice Perfected (Ultimate) 3, 6, 9 Oil Blend is a certified organic blend of guaranteed GMO-free, unrefined edible oils. This unique blend delivers a reliable source of the n-3 and n-6 essential fatty acids that are essential to life. Based on 15 years of practical experience with fats and oils, this formula is a 2:1:1 ratio of n-3: n-6: n-9, a combination most therapeutic for the n-3-deficient, n-6-rich diets, as well as ‘low’ and ‘no’ fat diets, common today. The Perfected Oil Blend includes oils from fresh flax, sesame and sunflower seeds, as well as oils from evening primrose, rice germ and oat germ.
Note: I have no financial interest nor get any commission or anything else from you buying Udo’s Choice. I just recommend it because I think it is excellent. I find it at most vitamin stores, health-food stores, and some supermarkets. It is widely available.
