Breakfast: key factor for weight loss or not?

 It had been said that in order to lose weight, an individual needs to have breakfast. Well, new studies published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition show that if an individual skips breakfast, weight loss will not be affected. It is important to note the studies did not take into consideration other variables such as metabolism, overall health, and major risk factors.  Even though such results are interesting, they might not apply to everybody.
When a person has breakfast, usually feels energetic and alert plus insulin/glucose levels are more stable. A person who do not ingests breakfast  might feel lethargic and less active with unstable levels of insulin/glucose, fatty acids, hormones, etc… Furthermore, the National Weight Control Registry had pointed out that more than 70% of people who loses weight do not skip breakfast, although there’s still a good number that skip the important meal and manage to lose weight.
Usually dieticians and nutritionists suggest that for a person to get organized in following better eating habits should have a good food plan that includes breakfast plus the other four meals (snacks, lunch, and dinner).  A breakfast that includes a lean protein, complex carbohydrates, and fruits or vegetables is recommended inside that eating plan.
Conclusion: Look at latest studies as part of knowledge but do what works for you and your body. As Roxanne Sukol M.D. said, “If you’re healthy, you’re at a good weight and your energy is good, you’re doing it right.”
