 Skipping Breakfast May Not Help to Lose Weight: Study

Missing out on breakfast is unlikely to help you shed those extra pounds, says a new study.

Surveys have shown that those who skip breakfast are four times more likely to be overweight than those who don't, reports the Daily Express.


The average content of a bowl of cereal with semi-skimmed milk is only 170 calories.

This is far less than the biscuits or pastry one might eat mid-morning when really hungry.

Oat-based cereals can help lower cholesterol, and those containing wholewheat or bran can be a valuable source of dietary fiber, along with many other vitamins and minerals.
