According to the team, increasing activity can improve health in sedentary people making them more active by controlling their blood sugar levels.

The results highlight some of these impacts, but 'how important'

The researchers wanted to study the possible links between breakfast, body weight and health.

In the study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers split obese individuals aged 21-60 into two groups 'fasting' and 'breakfasting' -- measuring several outcomes during a six-week period.

The 'breakfasting' group was asked to eat at least 700 calories by 11 am, which the first half of the group consumed within at least two hours of waking up.

The fasting group was allowed only water until noon.

It is important to bear in mind that not everybody responds in the same way to breakfast and that not all breakfasts are equal.
