Why You Shouldn’t Skip Breakfast

If you’re thinking about skipping your morning meal, you might want to reconsider!

According to a recent study done by researchers from the Mayo Clinic, findings suggested that eating meals in the mornings may actually help keep you slimmer and promote weight loss, as those who ate breakfast compared to those who didn’t were less likely to gain weight and accumulate belly fat. The study, which analyzed the breakfast habits of approximately 350 individuals, found that those who ate breakfast on a regular basis gained an average of 3 pounds in a year, while those who only ate breakfast occasionally gained approximately 5 pounds, and those who skipped breakfast all together gained 8 to 10 pounds.
