The breakfast should be celebrated, so have as much as you possibly can so you don’t feel hungry until lunch.’ The importance of eating breakfast is something we’ve had drilled into us for many years.

Then, by the time we think about getting breakfast, it’s nearly lunchtime, so we wait for that instead.
Even though eliminating an entire meal from your day may seem like a sure-fire way to lose weight, the exact opposite seems to be the case. As many studies have found, those skipping breakfast tend to eat more throughout the day and are more likely to be heavier. And another study found that skipping breakfast leads to a higher risk of developing chronic diseases like high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome and diabetes. These results could be additional weight that breakfast-skippers carry or could be due to skipping breakfast.
