Do you eat a hearty breakfast in the morning and then skip a few meals thinking it will help you lose weight? Think again. There is no good evidence to support the idea that eating breakfast promotes weight loss or that skipping breakfast leads to weight gain, finds a review published in The BMJ on Thursday.
In fact, the study shows that daily calorie intake is higher in people eating breakfast and that skipping breakfast does not cause greater appetite later in the day.
The study further say that their review questions the popular recommendation that eating breakfast can help with weight control.
