Here.

Basically fasting helps, the time you eat matters (early is better than later), and large meals are better for weight loss than lots of small meals.

"Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper"

Another study here.

i'm going to say one thing.

everybody's genes are different. people are not cars.

something that has a particular effect on somebody is going to have an opposite effect on another person. these are determined by a combination of thousands of genes interacting in a poorly understood fashion, which also have external forces at play, for example whether you are in a good mood/bad mood/good sleep/poor sleep/the moon/the room temperature/how much clothes you wearing ...

put a group of people and compare, you are going to get some statistics which to me means nothing. i don't think it matters what this particular study shows.
this effect applies to EVERY human study. google interindividual variability.

some studies like aspirin to prevent heart attack, is a bit simpler. one drug, one outcome. yet not everybody responds the same way.

Also, you can probably find studies that support whatever your beliefs are.

I found that in my own personal experience cutting down on sugar whether that be the normal 2 tsp in my coffee or in anything I eat helped me drop quite a few Kilo's in just a few weeks you need to watch out though as they may say no Sugar added read the Label if it says Modified corn starch it's sugar.. As an Sugar substitute I used a Stevia based product

Interesting - but as has been said you can never take any one study in isolation.

That study is also using patients with Type 2 Diabetes as their population - so you would need to assume the effects carry through to non diabetics.

I find that the don't eat too much, don't eat crap too often, avoid sugar and drink lots of water gets me through.

if you want to read the label you read the energy content. any excess energy you consume becomes fat. sugar, starch, whatever you want to call it = carb becomes fat when unused by the body. fat some of it becomes used, the rest stays as fat. protein some of it becomes used, the rest through a long winded process becomes fat. 

any excess energy is converted to fat.
you have 2 options - don't consume excess energy.
burn lots of energy such that there is no excess (weight stays the same), burn more than you take in (weight goes down).

people try to manipulate the way the body burns energy without dropping a sweat, well ... good luck

I didn't change anything else in what I did from day to day all I did was cut down / out the sugar in my diet

I don't particularly care about energy because I burn it off. When I look at the nutritional panel I'm more interested in sodium, sugar and saturated fat.

Pretty sure your body burns more energy just being than most people would burn daily by exercise.

bazzer: Pretty sure your body burns more energy just being than most people would burn daily by exercise.


Absolutely, basal metabolic rate. Being alive and doing a sedentary job with no exercise burns quite a bit, in my case around 1650 calories - calculator here. I just went to the gym, 40 minutes cardio burns around 400 calories, and my afternoon weight session will burn similar. So my body burns double keeping me alive than my almost over the top gym sessions today.
