Over the last 20 years, there has been a dramatic decline in breakfast consumption,
with over 31 million Americans skipping breakfast each day. There is a clear association
between breakfast consumption and age. Younger people (ages 18 to 44 years) are more likely to skip
breakfast than are middleaged and older adults. Typically, people who skip breakfast are more likely to consume
unhealthy foods and beverages and tend to overeat throughout the day.
A study comparing a protein-based breakfast to a carbohydrate-based breakfast found
that overweight women who ate protein for breakfast five times a week for eight weeks
lost 65 percent more weight and reduced their waist circumference by 83 percent more
than those eating a carbohydrate-based breakfast.
