Breakfast may not be as necessary as previously thought when it comes to losing weight, according to new research by UAB researchers. Krista Casazza, PhD, RD, Assistant Professor, Department of Nutrition Sciences, along with a team of scientists that includes David Allison, PhD, Director, Nutrition Obesity Research Center, conducted research showing that skipping breakfast may not be as detrimental as once thought to weight loss.
Much of Casazza's work was conducted in the CCTS' Clinical Research Unit and uses the Bionutrition Unit. The article, "Myths, Presumptions, and Facts About Obesity," was published in the Jan. 30, 2013 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. Casazza was featured in the September issue of Ladies' Home Journal, in an article titled, "Go Ahead Blow It Off! 6 Health Rules You can Break."
