But evidence suggests that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, in fact, we have never seen any study that suggests otherwise.

Here is a touch of some of the research showing the benefits of breakfast:

Diabetes: Skipping breakfast can increase the risk of diabetes in women, according to a study published this month in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Women who do not eat breakfast tend to have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than women who eat breakfast every day.

Heart disease: breakfast is associated with a lower incidence of heart disease in men aged 45 to 82 years.

Memory: It is likely that breakfast improves cognitive function related to memory and test scores.

Weight Loss: In a recent study, people who became breakfast at your main meal lost an average of 17.8 kilos in three months. The remaining participants who took the same amount of total calories per day, but they took most of their calories from dinner, lost an average of 7.3 kilos each in the same time period.
