Want to keep your heart healthy? Then pig out when you wake up. According to a new Tufts University study, middle-aged adults who regularly skip breakfast are more likely to suffer from clogged arteries and other forms of heart disease than those who enjoy a big morning meal.
As UPI notes, people who skip breakfast typically have more trouble controlling their appetites as the day wears on, and are also more likely to be obese or have diabetes. "People who skip breakfast generally make up for it later in the day," says Kim Larson of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
