Young Breakfast Skippers Don't Binge Later

Does breakfast help or hinder weight-loss efforts? Studies have come down on both sides of the question. The latest findings suggest that college students who skip breakfast do not compensate for the lost calories later in the day. The study included 24 healthy students who on three consecutive Wednesdays did one of three things: skipped breakfast; ate a 335-calorie, carbohydrate-rich breakfast; or ate a 338-calorie, high-fiber breakfast. Researchers then measured how much the participants ate at lunch. Turns out, breakfast didn't matter: The students all consumed about the same amount during lunch, even though those who had no breakfast reported feeling hungrier at lunchtime. So the breakfast skippers consumed fewer calories overall.
