Many studies support the benefits of consuming breakfast daily when it comes to managing weight. Breakfast refuels your body after a night of fasting. It also gives your metabolism a boost for the day. Furthermore, people who have lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for at least 3 years, regularly consume breakfast as part of their weight maintenance efforts. One study shows that consuming breakfast can even help you control your calorie intake.

Researchers found that people who skipped breakfast consumed more calories throughout the day. Those who skipped breakfast also had higher levels of total blood cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol. Consuming breakfast later in the morning is better than not eating breakfast at all. However, studies suggest that eating breakfast within an hour of waking up can help you control your blood sugar levels and hunger. So try to eat your breakfast, first thing in the morning. Beginning your day with breakfast can be beneficial toward your weight loss efforts.
