Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as you are breaking the overnight fast.
The amount you will want to eat can vary between individuals. Often ‘early risers’ will be ready for a hearty breakfast whereas sometimes ‘night owls’ do not want to eat straight away as it takes them a little time to get going. But, if you don't have a huge appetite, have a breakfast smoothie with protein or a couple of eggs which can help to keep you satisfied for longer as this stabilises energy levels. The protein is the key element here.
Research shows that people who eat breakfast tend to have a more balanced diet overall. Often, people who eat a healthy breakfast find that not only is this a good start to the day but it sets them on a healthy path for the day too and they continue to eat well - people who start the day with refined carbs and sugars often spend the day craving those foods (1).
The key is start the day as you mean to go on.
