A recent study suggests breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. A team from the University of Missouri in Columbia published a study in “Nutrition Journal,” that found eating breakfast increases levels of dopamine, a chemical produced in the brain controlling impulses. Food cravings leading to overeating appear to be reduced as dopamine levels increase. Researchers note a decrease in frequency of people eating breakfast in the last 50 years coincides with an increase in obesity during that time period.
