Researchers in Aberdeen are looking for volunteers to take part in a new weight loss study.
Staff at the Rowett Institute in Aberdeen are looking at the effect breakfast has on people’s energy balance and eating behaviour.
It will compare a diet of a large breakfast with smaller evening meals, to small breakfast meals and large dinners.
The results will help scientists understand the importance of both what people eat and when they eat.
The 10-week study is looking for men aged between 18 and 75, or women aged over 18 on either hormonal contraceptive or postmenopausal.
Volunteers will also need to regularly eat breakfast – at least five times a week – and have a BMI between 27 and 42.
