We all know the phrase - Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And it really is. But still most of us skip this meal in hopes to lose weight or simply because we think we aren't hungry. After sleeping for 6-9 hours our bodies need to be replenished with a healthy breakfast, if we skip it our bodies think that we are going to starve and start storing fat which actually makes you gain weight.
