I started eating breakfast about a year ago because of all the supposed health benefits I'd read about, but the only effect the extra meal had on me was weight gain. I only had a piece of fruit or some small bit of carbs, but I discovered that once I ate I was hungry all morning until lunch, when I'd overeat.
I was never hungry in the morning before, but I forced myself to eat breakfast because of all the hype... now I'm quitting again. Unless I prime the pump with breakfast I don't really think about food at all until lunch time, when I eat a reasonable portion. I haven't eaten breakfast for several weeks now, and I feel much better for it and I'm losing weight.
