Enjoying a hearty breakfast sets you up to consume less calories throughout the day. So concludes a recent study by the American Heart Association. According to their findings, those who ate a healthy breakfast were 35 to 50 percent less likely to be obese or suffer from insulin resistance—a condition that’s common in overweight individuals.

Twenty-four percent of today’s adults, ages 18 to 34, skip breakfast. Teens fare a little better with only 19 percent hurrying out the door hungry. Nine percent of kids ages 8 to 12 skip their first meal, while 6 percent of children under 8 bypass breakfast.
