If you don't live by the "breakfast is THE most important meal of the day" rule, you might just be onto something.
After the 16 week study, results revealed that in terms of weight loss (NOT other potential health effects) participants lost the some amount.
"Now that we know the general recommendation of 'eat breakfast every day' has no differential impact on weight loss, we can move forward with studying other techniques for improved effectiveness," she says.
"We should try to understand why eating or skipping breakfast did not influence weight loss, despite evidence that breakfast may influence appetite and metabolism."
So missing out on breakfast might no be so bad after all - though, let's not forget the fact that fasting for long periods of time does not a healthy, balanced diet make.
If you're all about a hearty something (we love this superfood granola) to kick-start your day then stick to it, but if breakfast wasn't really your thing anyway then it sounds like it's no biggie. Just make sure you lunch and dinner like a BOSS.
