This article in the New York Times helps dispel the "breakfast is more important than any other meal" myth.
The point is, just eat when hungry. Your body will tell you when you need more fuel. If you feel the need to eat just after you wake up, fine. If you aren't hungry till noon, that's fine too. Eating when not truly hungry may cause weight gain. Forcing a meal down simply because of what the hands on the clock point to say is kinda ridiculous. It so happens that the notion that breakfast is "the most important meal of the the day" originated (no surprise here) with Kellogg's. Industry funded studies always give industry favorable results.
If you do like breakfast (like I do), do not eat cereal and drink OJ. Sorry, Kellogg's and Minute-Maid. Go with, eggs or meat or full fat dairy like cheese. After a nice omelette, I am not usually hungry again until supper. Yup, I usually feel well fueled all day long after a nice high fat breakfast.
