In this review, the authors provide a comprehensive examination of intervention-based clinical trials that test whether breakfast consumption improves appetite control and satiety as well as energy expenditure compared with skipping breakfast. They consider factors including the composition of breakfast, meal size and form, and habitual breakfast behaviors. 

The review findings include positive to neutral support for the inclusion of breakfast for improvements in appetite control, satiety, and postprandial energy expenditure.
