For decades we have been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But experts around the world are now questioning it!

Till very recently, it was believed that eating healthy breakfast helps in controlling weight. We were told that if we skipped breakfast, we tended to eat more later in the day. Also, we were told, the metabolic rate dropped if we skipped breakfast. So brekfast was touted as a weight loss tool!

But recently, it has been found that people who skip breakfast do not eat more later in the day. The metabolism also suffers little or no impact of skipping breakfast. In fact, people who skip breakfast tend to be lighter.

Research and studies keep giving us contradictory information. Often we feel that these studies are motivated and hence unreliable. So it would be best to take the results of these studies with a pinch of salt. There is no general rule about eating or skipping breakfast. The best thing is to try both and see what works for you!
