Sadly, your parents and that talking tiger (and his friends Anxiety Leprechaun and Fudge Dracula) might've led you astray. Breakfast has none of the weight-loss sorcery that we assumed it did. A 2014 University of Alabama study found that the act of eating breakfast didn't necessarily help overweight adults lose weight. And in another study from Columbia University, some participants who skipped a breakfast actually lost weight (at the expense of overall heightened cholesterol levels).
So yes, eating breakfast isn't totally without merit, as it can fuel your body with food groups (such as dairy and fruit) that might go ignored throughout the rest of your day. But if you're already skipping breakfast -- and are receiving sufficient nutrition otherwise -- it doesn't look like you're wreaking apocalyptic havoc on your health. Just don't replace those meals with marshmallowy cereals, OK?
Or, you know, eat better cereals.
