How much does breakfast actually matter? We hear all the time that it’s the most important meal of the day, but many Americans skip breakfast altogether! Read on to learn more about how our breakfast behaviors can affect our bodies and our energy.

Myth: Breakfast is needed for weight loss.

This isn’t necessarily true! When people are trying to lose weight, it doesn’t matter if they eat first thing or not. Researchers have found that skipping the meal didn’t help anyone lose weight, but it also found that those who ate breakfast didn’t gain weight either. Keep in mind, though, there are specific foods that can help weight loss when eaten at breakfast time. Contact a nutritionist!

Myth: Breakfast makes you smarter.

This hasn’t been found to be true. However, studies have shown that eating breakfast before you are expected to engage in another task, such as academics, can help you improve. This is because you are not distracted by feelings of hunger, not necessarily because the breakfast food itself made you smarter.

Myth: Breakfast will slow you down for the day.

Not the case! Breakfast will usually give you more energy. Those who eat breakfast are more likely to move about and engage in more physical activity than those who skip breakfast. The breakfast skippers tend to do things a bit more sluggishly. The active people who did eat their breakfast usually burned about 500 more calories than those who skipped. If you find that eating in the morning gives you more energy, feel free!
