There are plenty of ways to lose weight and burn fat fast. I like to keep it simple so I find this strategy as a good start point. In the UK, one of the major dietary habits I encounter is a small breakfast (or none at all) and a large evening meal.

It's amazing really how many people skip breakfast everyday and then have a massive evening meal and wonder why they don't lose weight! Some people would argue that weight loss is purely calories in and calories out and nothing else. This basic principle is obviously accurate but why do so many people who don't eat very much, still not lose weight? This is where the problem lies in the meal timing and size. If someone skips breakfast but then a chocolate bar in the morning followed by high sugar drinks all day and then a calorie dense meal in the evening, those calories can soon mount up. Another issue is that the evening meal can sometimes include pasta or potatoes which can add significant calories for what seem to small portions. Another big problem here is the fact that people rarely do any physical activity after an evening meal so the calories aren't used.

The body is arguably more primed to store fat at night as well as it winds down for the day. If you eat a large meal before bed as well, it can effect sleep, which then means the chances of cravings and hunger the following day are increased because of tiredness and stress!

I would say that trying to eat something in the morning gets you off to a good start. It is very rare in my experience as a personal trainer to see people consistently skip a good meal in the morning and then be a healthy weight. It is ok to fast sometimes as it does the body good to clear toxins but constant calorie restriction can mess up your metabolism. The other thing that not eating breakfast can do is increase sugar cravings, it is rare that people who skip breakfast a lot often reach for the salad at eleven o'clock in the morning! Chances are its a coffee and a biscuit!

My advice is to get off to a good start and make a nice whole food breakfast and avoid large meals at night, this could be the missing link to your fat loss goals!
