British newspaper The Telegraph recently published an article with advice on a diet that might be worth considering if you are trying to lose or maintain your weight. The Telegraph’s article, “Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper to lose weight” may have a medieval-sounding title, but there is some scientific evidence to support their claim.
Perhaps you've heard the dieting advice to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. Now, mounting evidence shows there's a lot of truth to it.
A recent study published in the International Journal of Obesity suggests that it's best not to eat too many calories late in the day. Dieters who ate their main meal before 3 p.m. lost significantly more weight than those who ate later in the day.
When I see a fat man struggling with all his might to climb a hill on a bike, an overweight woman beet red in the face as she jogs in obvious pain on a hot day, or a fat couple willing to be seen in a gym full of young hard bodies, I don’t sneer. I feel nothing but empathy. I cheer them on. Because not long ago, I was that guy.
We can all be better. Instead of showing scorn to the fat man or woman, cheer them on. Show them support. If they can do it, we all can.
