For those who are trying to lose weight, there is a lively debate about eating breakfast. The pro breakfast group contends that breakfast helps to jump start metabolism and hence allow for more efficient weight loss. The anti-breakfast group contends that people can lose weight more efficiently by skipping breakfast.
So which side is correct and will help you lose weight?
It is true, initially, that skipping breakfast can reduce calories and initiate quick early weight loss. However, that effect is short lived. Many who support skipping breakfast as a way to lose weight, maintain weight, and somehow reap anti-aging benefits can only produce studies that were inconclusive.
