While previous research has shown that skipping breakfast causes the brain to crave high calorie foods and can lead to weight gain rather than weight loss, new research completed at Harvard found that men who skip breakfast increase their chance of developing diabetes by over 20%.

The elevated risk was even in men who were slim and healthy and ate fairly healthy diets.

The study which was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition followed over 15,000 men for 16 years.

Try a high fiber cereal for breakfast

My suggestion is that you eat a high fiber breakfast cereal and even sprinkle in ground flax seeds and use non-fat milk.  There is a product by General Mills called Fiber One/Honey Clusters. It is fairly low in sugar content and quite high in fiber content, 13 grams. (The ground flax seeds will add even more fiber.)  It tastes quite good, keeps you full and provides the GI health benefits of both soluble and non-soluble fiber.

This recommendation is for both men and women.
