For years, dieticians said breakfast was the most important meal for weight loss, but now many say you should skip it. In fact, a new review of studies currently flooding news sites says that breakfast does not help with weight loss. Many a.m. eaters believe starting your morning with a good meal lowers your risk of junk food binges, but the new paper, published in BMJ, says this isn’t exactly true.
Researchers looked at 13 controlled trials and compared the weights of adults who did and didn’t eat breakfast. They found no evidence that skipping breakfast could lead to weight gain, or that eating breakfast will help you lose weight.
