People skip breakfast for a variety of reasons : not hungry, no time, don't like breakfast foods or trying to lose weight.  If you're a breakfast - skipper and still not convinced that it's important, read on.It's true that some people just aren't that hungry in the morning. Many people feel like their  stomachs take a while  to 'wake  up'.   Even though your stomach may not send you strong signals  in the morning if you skip  breakfast, your muscles  and brain will certainly  protest.Working muscles  and an active  mind require plenty of healthy carbohydrates to keep them functioning properly.
