When you eat breakfast, the fast from the previous day’s last meal is literally broken. In the universe of nutrition, breakfast is the most important meal of the day—especially when it comes to athletic performance. Study upon study has concluded that our morning meal is leagues more than just comforting wafts of bacon perfume and doughnuts; those who consume it are less likely to be overweight and also have better concentration. Athletic performance studies done by the United States Olympic Committee show breakfast eaters tend to have more strength and endurance, which ultimately separates the lodge lounger from the multi-lap skier.
