Does eating breakfast actually lead to weight loss? One study says it may not

(CNN) — Many have said eating breakfast helps with weight loss, but a new study seems to go against that.

A study published Wednesday in the medical journal “The BMJ” found people who ate breakfast regularly consumed more calories each day. That means those who ate breakfast did not lose any weight.

They also say those who skipped the morning meal did not have an increased appetite later in the day. That means they saw no weight gain

The study looked at the results from 13 clinical trials mostly from the U.S and the United Kingdom. But one expert admits that the quality of the trials did vary.
