Breakfast: The Most Important Meal of the Day?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Or is it? For years American’s have heard that eating breakfast is essential to a healthy and in maintaining weight. A report was made by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, pertaining to this claim. The report found that this advice as a weight loss or maintenance recommendation may be based off of misinterpreted studies. The report found a few studies that were carefully controlled about the effect of eating breakfast. These studies typically found that skipping has little to no effect on weight gain. Some of those studies also concluded that people who eat breakfast consume more daily calories than those who skip breakfast. Some people may need breakfast more than others. There is not enough evidence to support one side or the other of this debate. The question still remains, is breakfast the most important meal of the day?
