Researchers from a 2017 cohort study of more than 50,000 healthy adults found evidence that a lower body mass index (BMI) is associated with not only eating breakfast, but making it the biggest meal of the day.

Other research claims include that breakfast eaters versus breakfast skippers may lose weight easier, and that when your breakfast is nutritious, and followed by a relatively smaller lunch and dinner, you may ward off extra body fat in the long term. EAT HEALTHY in The XSport Life – Recipe here
