Common breakfast myths debunkedWhile it can be your greatest source of information, the Internet is also a popular forum for myths to be given an edge of truth. With so many different sayings and thoughts floating around, it can be rather easy for false statements to be twisted into facts that a large audience begins to believe. What have you heard?

As a restaurant that specializes in pancakes, we thought it would be a good idea to put some of the most common breakfast myths to rest. Check out the truth behind some of the widely believed breakfast statements below:

Breakfast WILL Make Me Lose Weight

As reported by CNN, a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggested that eating breakfast rather than skipping it isn’t directly related to weight loss. While yes, the foods you choose to eat and the time you choose to eat them at may play a role in weight loss efforts, skipping breakfast vs. eating it doesn’t necessarily have a direct correlation with results.

Eating Breakfast Will Lessen My Calorie Intake Later

Although you would naturally assume that skipping breakfast would cause you to feel hungrier throughout the rest of the day and therefore, eat more, the truth is that breakfast skippers generally do not consume more calories than those who do indulge in a meal. However, if you are interested in putting off your hunger pains, consider adding more protein to your morning!

Everyone MUST Eat Breakfast 

When it all comes down to it, of course you should be making an honest effort to break your fast every morning. However, if you aren’t hungry, you don’t necessarily need to force yourself – unless you’re an athlete or training for a physically demanding event! For this group of people, it’s important to fuel up in the morning before heading out for your workout.

Do you have another rule of thumb that you generally live by when it comes to your breakfast habits? If you have a routine that you stick to but aren’t sure how credible it is, we recommend doing your research to ensure that you’re doing right by your body and your overall health.
