People often skip breakfast thinking that cutting calories will help them lose weight. Research shows that eating breakfast can actually help people control their weight. Our bodies need to be refueled a few times each day. When we skip meals we often feel so hungry by the time we eat we tend to eat more food than normal, which cancels out the calories we cut by skipping breakfast. We may also be tempted to choose foods that are not the healthiest choices when we allow ourselves to get hungry.
