Eating Breakfast Can Help You Lose Weight

Written by Tena Moore

A lot of teenagers, especially females, seem to think that skipping breakfast is a great way to cut calories for the day and in turn,
lose weight. New research suggests that this couldn’t be further from the truth. After studying more than 2,000 teens over a five year period, they found that those who skipped breakfast actually weighed more than those who ate first thing in the morning.

While those who ate breakfast did consumed more calories over the course of the day, the teens that ate breakfast were more active and burned more calories as well. Those that ate breakfast every morning were five pounds lighter than those who did not.

It seems that fueling up the mornings can set the tone for an energetic, active day, while not eating can make one more tired and sluggish. The study didn’t find any difference in those that ate healthy whole grains and those who ate just about anything, as long as they ate something in the mornings upon waking.

There is a plethora of studies that suggest that it is healthier to eat breakfast in the mornings for everyone, whether young or old.
