Studies That “Prove” A Link Between Breakfast And Weight Loss Are Faulty

September 9, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers say that studies designed to find an association between eating a nutrient-dense breakfast and losing weight do not prove that one causes the other. The researchers examined 92 studies that looked at the effect of breakfast on obesity, finding that many were either biased or simply did not advance knowledge about the issue beyond the status quo. They said a number of the research articles tended to overstate the strength of study designs and “ignored evidence that did not support” their hypothesis.
