Eating breakfast does help some people lose weight. It can stave off hunger, and it might prevent random eating later in the day. Yet, skipping breakfast may help some healthy people shed pounds if they don't overeat at lunch and dinner, eating about 400 fewer calories a day. According to 2015 statistics, 44% of Americans eat breakfast every day while 93% of Americans believe breakfast is the most important meal.
A 2016 study from Osaka University of 82,000 men and women found that eating breakfast decreases the risk of having a stroke. In 2015, a study of 5,000 kids (ages 9 to 11) by Cardiff University showed that children are twice as likely to score higher than average grades if they start the day with a healthy breakfast. A study about pregnancy and breakfast from Northwestern University found that women who skipped breakfast were 6% less likely to give birth to boys presumably due to lower levels of glucose in their blood. Teenagers who skip breakfast are significantly more likely to suffer from bad breath than teens who eat breakfast. Eating breakfast also help to reduce cravings for sweets and improves athletic and mental performance.
