After a night without food, your body needs refueling to get through the next day. "Think about the word 'breakfast,'" says Tallahassee, Fla.-based dietitian Evette O'Connor, MS, RD. "It literally means to 'break your fast,' the 8 or 10 hours your body has gone without food. When you don't eat breakfast, your body has to call upon other nutritional stores in order to function. It's just like your car. You can't drive without gas, and your body won't function properly without replenishing its fuel."
Adequately fueling your body has indirect benefits. People who skip breakfast often feel more tired, irritable, and restless in the morning. People who eat breakfast have a better attitude toward work, more strength and endurance, and better concentration — all of which are crucial to sticking with a diet and an exercise program.
"People often say that they get hungry more often if they eat breakfast,' but that's a good thing," says O'Connor. "It means your metabolism is up and going, which means your body is burning fuel, or calories. And because eating gives you energy, you feel better and are more likely to be able to fight the urge to overeat."
