- Eating breakfast helps you spread out your hunger and manage your food intake better throughout the day tells Dr. James O. Hill, Director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado - If you start out the day by eating something, you don't get this burning hunger later that causes you to overeat. When you skip breakfast it also slows down your metabolism.
