Breakfast isn’t routine for everyone. Some of us don’t have time, we either go to work too early and, without realizing it, is lunchtime, or we do not eat in the morning fearing that we’re going to get fat.
One study shows the contrary: not eating breakfast can make you gain weight! According to the researchers, if you eat your breakfast twice, you won’t gain more than not eating at all. Try at least to eat 1 breakfast a day and you will feel much better throughout the day.
Scientists at Yale University in Connecticut conducted a study among 600 people, observing their weight for two years. They tracked the weight of the subjects and the number of meals eaten in the morning. People who used to eat both at home and at work remained at the same weight. However, for those who gained weight, there were insignificant differences between those with 2 breakfasts and those without eating anything in the morning.
The explanation is easy to understand: People skipping breakfast or over any of the three meals of the day are prone to eating a lot more high calorie foods between meals. This thing, which is well known, leads to gaining weight.
