Breakfast—the most important meal of the day?

The latest research on breakfast calls into question the link between eating breakfast and lower body weight.  The 12-week study had 2 separate groups, one who ate breakfast and one that did not.  They each lost roughly the same amount of weight. The study suggests:

  • Missing breakfast has either little or no effect on weight gain
  • The most important factor was the amount of calories consumed during the day and not when or how they were consumed

Working in the field of weight loss for over 10 years, what I’ve observed is that it is more important for a person to understand and recognize if they need or want to eat breakfast. Many have told me that breakfast makes them nauseous and hungrier later in the day. They continually tried to force the breakfast issue because they had “heard it was the best thing to do.” Listen to your body, first and foremost.
