Scientists from the Monash University in Melbourne looked at 13 controlled trials of mostly United Kingdom and U.S. subjects from over the past 28 years, and analysed the data. As per the findings of the study, the total daily energy intake was found to be higher in groups who ate breakfast compared with those who skipped it regardless of their usual breakfast habits.
