Maintaining Healthy Dietary Patterns During Adolescence Prevents Obesity

June 22, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Spanish researchers who studied health data and physical activity patterns from 1,978 adolescents found that some dietary habits – eating more than four scheduled meals a day, or not eating too fast – were associated with lower body fat levels, with or without free-time exercise. The researchers also noted that eating breakfast every day was especially beneficial for young men who do not exercise, because those who skipped breakfast showed higher body fat values.
