Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day because it breaks a night of fasting (going without food). It replenishes your supply of energy and other essential nutrients to keep your energy level up throughout the day. Breakfast helps provide folate, iron, B vitamins, protein, calcium and other important nutrients needed for good health.
If you are trying to lose weight, avoid skipping breakfast. You will not lose weight any faster by going without breakfast. Eat something in the morning even if you are not hungry.
