A nutritious breakfast can help give you more energy, reduce your daily caloric intake and help maintain a healthy weight.
A national study followed the eating habits of 12,000 men and women. The findings show those who ate a low-calorie and low-energy dense breakfast weighed less and had an overall healthier diet compared to those who ate junk food or skipped the meal altogether.
Researchers concluded that low-energy dense foods such as fruits, vegetables and high-fiber whole grains can help you lose weight and make better food choices during the rest of the day.
