If you belong in that category of people who believe that skipping breakfast may eliminate some calories, then you should think twice before doing so.
That’s because many research suggests that, among other things, a nutritious food consumed in the morning helps to control your weight, increase work mental capacity and decreases the risk of heart disease or diabetes.
