The Science of Breakfast: Is It the Most Important Meal of the Day?

For years we've been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But is that fact or myth? Do breakfast-eaters really have an advantage over breakfast-skippers when it comes to dieting and weight loss?

Let's find out!

Key Takeaways:

Eating breakfast may prevent you from overeating later in the day
Skipping breakfast may lead to you consuming fewer calories, especially from "healthy" breakfast cereals.
Whether eating or skipping breakfast, find the strategy that best fits your lifestyle and preferences, while still advancing your health goals.
