In a nutshell:  This 12 month long study  found that dieters who ate a healthy breakfast which was not followed by a mid-morning snack lost an average of 11% of their bodyweight, compared to only 7% for women who did snack between breakfast and lunch. The authors suggest that a dietary weight-loss intervention should carefully consider the effects of timing, frequency, and snack quality on weight loss.
