Do we really need to eat breakfast every morning?

My breakfast-eating habit isn’t unique, but there are a lot of people who start their day on an empty stomach. To answer this question, I did a little search—and here’s what I found:

Benefit

1.Get & Stay Lean

Eating a morning meal is a healthy habit. Research shows that usual breakfast eaters tend to be leaner and dieters are more successful at losing weight—and keeping it off—when they eat breakfast.

2.Nutrients

People who typically eat breakfast also get more fiber, calcium, vitamins A and C, riboflavin, zinc and iron—and less fat and dietary cholesterol. Maybe it’s because they often eat cereal, which is fortified with vitamins and minerals, and fruit, which is naturally nutrient-rich.

3.Heart Health

Breakfast is good for your heart, too, according to new research in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The study found that people who skipped breakfast throughout childhood and as adults had higher “bad” LDL and whole cholesterol than lifelong breakfast eaters.

4.Bottom Line

Not hungry when you first get up? No problem. Eating breakfast doesn’t have to be the first thing you do each day. Just make sure that when you do eat, your meal is something that will sustain you for a few hours—it should include some fiber and protein.
