Scientist compared the "big breakfast" diet with a strict low-carb weight-loss regime. They studied 94 obese, inactive women and found that carb dieters initially loss more weight. But the "big breakfast" group continued to loss weight while those on strictdiet regained almost all thier weight loss.
