Here's a new study that I'm betting will not only put a smile on many faces but will get more people to regularly eat "the most important meal of the day."
A team of scientists from the Strasburg Holistic Institute of Technology and Bedford State University have proven that a breakfast of coffee and donuts is best when it comes to weight management. World renowned doctors Kester and Ing teamed up to lead the noteworthy study. Their findings were published in the Journal of Obesity, Kinetics, and Exercise Science.
Dr. Jo Kester, Director of Nutritional studies at Bedford University Learning Laboratory(B.U.L.L.) stated she choose to do this study to determine if there are any benefits to the two most common breakfast choices of most working adults- coffee and donuts or having nothing at all.
Subjects were divided into three groups. The first group consumed a breakfast consisting of two normal sized donuts and two 12 ounce cups of coffee with cream and sugar. The second group skipped breakfast. The third group was a control group. The control group had a breakfast of three strips of bacon, two slices of buttered toast, two eggs scrambled in lard, four sausage links, an English muffin with cheese, 16 ounces of chocolate milk, a raspberry danish, a banana, and a 64 ounce Diet Coke.
After twelve weeks the coffee and donuts group gained less weight than the control group. Dr. Josh Ing, a clinical professor at Strasburg Holistic Institute of Technology, states "Our study proves that a breakfast of coffee and donuts is best when it comes to weight management. It's what I have myself everyday."
Funding for the study was provided by Dunkin Brands. To read the full research findings of doctors Jo Kester and Josh Ing's study visit the Journal of Obesity, Kinetics, and Exercise Science site JOKES.com
