Importance of Breakfast

You want to lose weight, then make sure you eat your breakfast!

Regular breakfast skippers tend to consume more fat, be heavier and gain more weight over time. A study from Imperial College in London reveals a possible explanation. Twenty non-obese people were shown pictures of low-energy foods (salad, vegetables, fish) and high-energy foods (cake, chocolate, pizza). They were asked to rate how appealing the foods were after either having a filling breakfast or no breakfast at all. To check their responses to the pictures, brain imaging was used. The evidence showed that after having no breakfast, the participants' reward and appetite centers in the brain were simulated by pictures of high-energy foods. The findings are said to prove the theory that skipping breakfast is more likely to lead to weight gain.
