WeightControl.com:  What is the background for this study? 

Response: There are a lot of myths surrounding the timing of eating and how it might influence either body weight or health. When dieting, many people follow the old saying “breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper,” based on the belief that consuming the bulk of daily calories in the morning optimizes weight loss by burning calories more efficiently.
