This Study Proves Skipping Breakfast Might Not Actually Make You Fat

August 11, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

At some point or another, we’ve all heard that skipping breakfast might make you put on weight more easily. In fact, it’s not just a random thought people tell one another. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which is the federal government’s advice book suggests “not eating breakfast has been associated with excess body weight.” However, an experiment conducted last year at Columbia University may prove this theory wrong.

Researchers placed participants into three different groups: one who ate oatmeal for breakfast, one who ate Frosted Flakes for breakfast and one who ate nothing for breakfast. The study found that overweight people who skipped breakfast were the only group to lose weight.

This study now has people wondering whether or not they should skip breakfast and go against what the government has suggested for years. Madelyn Fernstrom, NBC News Health and Nutrition editor, says, “There are many factors that impact weight gain and maybe skipping breakfast or eating breakfast is one of them, but it’s not the only one.”

Hmm…
