Study: Skipping breakfast a quicker path to heart disease

If you think you are doing your body a favor by skipping breakfast, think again.

People who skip breakfast have more risk factors for heart disease, found an Australian study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, according to Onlinehealthnews.

Researchers with the University of Tasmania found that both children and adults who skip their morning meal (defined as being between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m.) tend to have overall worse eating behaviors and exercise less than those who do eat breakfast.

Breakfast skippers also tend to have high cholesterol, elevated insulin levels, and larger waist circumferences.
