It is a well known fact that eating breakfast increases energy, mood and metabolism..yes, metabolism, throughout the day. But did you know that people who skip breakfast are typically heavier than people who don't? This is because people who skip breakfast are more prone to eat more food, and less healthier food at other meals. Sort of like "well, I didn't have breakfast, so I can have this cupcake with lunch" way of thinking.
There have been many studies published in relation to breakfast and weight. A study in Japan showed that those people who skipped breakfast were more likely to develop metabolic syndrome. A study from the Dairy Research Institute found that people who skip breakfast weigh more and have more unhealthy habits than those who eat breakfast. Those who skip breakfast consume 40 percent more sweets, 55 percent more soft drinks, 45 percent fewer vegetables and 30 percent less fruit than people who eat breakfast. There has even been research showing that children (and we can assume adults) who eat breakfast have a better concentration level and do better on tests than those who do not.

So, now I am off to eat. Is it too late to get breakfast still? Oh well. There is always tomorrow!
