Remember those numerous YouTube 'dieticians' that claimed that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? And that if you were seeking to shed those extra pounds, you should have your breakfast at all costs?

Well, it turns out that it all might be pish-posh as scientists now claim that breakfast is not the most important meal of the day.

A peer-reviewed medical journal, BMJ, recently published a study composed of 13 controlled trials which were carried out by researchers at the Monash University in Australia. 

They found that ensuring that you have your breakfast every single day might not be a good strategy for weight loss.

In fact, the study said that eating breakfast could actually result in adults consuming more calories throughout the day. 

On top of that, BMJ found no metabolic differences between those that consumed breakfast daily and those that didn't.

Try citing this study as a reason for skipping breakfast in front of your mother. But be ready to receive the infamous flying chappal in return.
