If you’re working to drop pounds, you may be tempted to skip breakfast altogether. After all, the less calories you eat, the more weight you’ll lose. Right? Not so fast. A Mayo Clinic article says eating a nutritious breakfast can actually help you to control weight better than skipping it. Here’s why:
- Eating breakfast reduces hunger, so you’re less likely to overeat later in the day.
- When you eat breakfast, you tend to make healthier food choices all day.
- Eating breakfast gives you a burst of energy that can help you to be more physically active during the day. Studies have even linked skipping breakfast to reduced physical activity.
