Maybe Breakfast Isn't the Most Important Meal After All

As with many other nutritional pieces of advice, our belief in the power of breakfast is based on misinterpreted research and biased studies.

Good reviews of all the observational research note the methodological flaws in this domain, as well as the problems of combining the results of publication-bias-influenced studies into a meta-analysis. The associations should be viewed with skepticism and confirmed with prospective trials.

Few randomized controlled trials exist. Those that do, although methodologically weak like most nutrition studies, don’t support the necessity of breakfast.
