I do find that when I eat a big breakfast, I still eat during the day and I generally eat more... but I wonder if my idea of a big breakfast is just too big? :-/

I don't think that any of the research is so much of a 'science fail' than it is a factor of 'all bodies are different'
I was never a breakfast eater, (unless I was pregnant), the thought of anything to eat before I was up for a minimum of 4-5 hours made my stomach turn.
I went on a rigorous diet a few years ago, I ate on a schedule....very little food at very short intervals. The diet turned out to be too restricting for me, but it did work...until I started eating things other than egg whites, tuna, and salad. But what it DID do was kick my metabolism into place and also turned me into a breakfast eater.
I usually don't eat a lot for breakfast, usually a hard boiled egg or two and a banana. On the occasional weekend splurge when I make a 'nice' breakfast for everyone, or if we go out for breakfast, I eat more calories and I eat more throughout the day as well. Also, now, if I don't eat breakfast, or if I hit a point during the day that its been 5 or so hours since I have eaten, I can tell...usually by my mood sooner than feeling hunger pangs.
Maybe its not the fact of eating or not, but how much you eat? Whenever I eat until I am totally full, I hate to lose that full feeling and I munch throughout the day.

I think everyone is different. I know when I was younger, in my teens, I absolutely could eat no food before 11 am. It caused severe stomach upset, and it didn't matter what it was. My entire high school time was sans breakfast. College...sometimes I ate breakfast, sometimes I didn't. It depended on my schedule. Now...if I don't eat breakfast, I'm hungry all....day....long and I eat mindlessly. My best days start off with some kind of protein, either 2 eggs scrambled in the microwave or a chobani yogurt, Trop 50 juice, and a banana. This past week I've been indulging in hot oatmeal with banana and dried fruit and cinnamon....SO yummy and eaten around 9:00 am which is a decent morning time. I try very hard to adhere to SP recommendations of caloric amounts at meal times. For me, it's roughly between 400-500 calories per meal, but as I said at the beginning EVERYONE is different.
