On the other hand, I have read things that suggest there is nothing special about eating breakfast compared to other meals. In fact, they suggest that not eating breakfast is healthier, largely because the typical breakfast foods tend to be unhealthy.
Personally, I eat breakfast if I am hungry in the morning. Which is not often.
Looking at the article linked above, most of the connection was due to a coincidence with other factors. Skipping breakfast tends to be linked to other lifestyle choices which are more obviously problematic, and though they say they corrected for it, it is hard to draw conclusions from studies like that. You can find things stating the opposite
“Dr. Allison said that the true relationship between eating breakfast and body weight, if there is one, was still an open question. But observational studies that tout an association between the two are churned out “just about every week,” despite doing nothing to actually test or prove the claim.”
The other article is an observational study. Those are very hard to interpret meaningful results from.
