Skipping breakfast was linked to increased hunger, cravings for high-calorie foods and higher overall food intake throughout the day, according to a small study presented at the Society for Neuroscience meeting. MRI results revealed that those who did not eat breakfast showed stronger activity in the orbitofrontal cortex, a brain region associated with reward and food pleasure, when shown pictures of high-calorie foods, compared with those who ate breakfast.
